Do you ever get tired of knitting?

In a word? NO! I had a good friend say that to me earlier this week. I almost didn't take her seriously for a moment because I know my thought processes and what I daydream about, and it's usually something to do with yard after yard of alpaca, wool, merino, you name it. I just love yarn. I love the colors. I love the smell. I love the way it feels when it's running through my fingers. I love watching the various colors of self striping yarn as it is being pulled over and around my knitting needles. Even if I'm not making anything big, or if I'm just practicing a new stitch or pattern, I am content when I have my hands working on a knitting project no matter what it is.
In some non knitting related news, there is a new member of the Suiter family! We are fostering a beautiful little pomeranian named Little Foot. We brought him home this afternoon and the kids are so joyful. It fills my heart to see them so happy! And giving this beautiful pup a nice home is so fulfilling. How this will tie in to knitting of course is that I will be making sweaters and blankies for him.
Knitting guild meets on Wednesday! I love guild weeks. The ladies at the rescue were also knitters so I think I have recruited them for joining as well. The love of dogs and cats and knitting seems to go hand in hand. I can't wait to show examples of the comfort hugs for foster kids on Wednesday. I have had a couple donations and I just finished a beautiful feather and fan shall in Aruba Sea from Red Heart Super Saver.  I hate that kids have to be in the situations that require our comfort hugs, but I am so joyful that we can reach out to them with these little blankets and let them know they are thought of and prayed for.
Well, off to Wal Mart to get our new little companion a soft doggy bed to lay on. Share the joy, share the peace.
