Great Googily Moogily

My dog is SO cute.

We were sitting around, watching TV and Leo decided to use my teddy bear, Schlepp, as a pillow. Panda pops up on the couch and makes herself comfortable, head to head with Leo, and proceeds to pass out cold.

Do I hear a collective "awwwwww" from my friends out there?

But it doesn't stop there.

She isn't just passed out on Schlepp, she goes in and out of solid, dreaming, leg twitching sleep. Every time I try to snap a picture, she flutters her eyes open and gives me that "Oh, MOM" look, but I can't help myself. Could you?

This lasted several hours making it exceedingly hard to get any knitting done. She's just so cute. It's one thing to fall asleep, but when she snuggles up with a teddy bear, that's just too cute for words.

As for knitting, I haven't made much progress because I've been trying to find the perfect lace for my Paco piece. I have knit and torn out a dozen different edgings. Finally, I found one that seems to fit the look I'd like

It's exactly the right width, feminine without being too froofy, a little bit airy, without lacking body. I think I'm happy. Now I just need to chart the pattern so I can reverse it. It's a uni-directional lace so I think it would look nicer if it mirrored itself on either side of the piece.

Oh, one last note, for those of you who might still be interested in purchasing my little cartoon characters on items, I've added some pins and magnets, which are under $5.00.
