Please Don't Shed On My Knitting...

Two sleeves are finished and I've started on the back of the sweater now.
I loved this sweater pattern in green cotton (remember?),
so I know I'm going to love it in creamy, soft bamboo.

I started this sweater during the wedding gown project, and this is how
much I've managed to accomplish so far. The pattern and I
are so well acquainted that it's really a fun sweater to knit.

I'm already working on the ribbing, so that part will skip right along!
Kes has company for the next few days (or more). Our good friend, Richard, made an emergency trip to the hospital Thursday night, and had to leave Stout behind at home. He (Richard, not Stout), then called us this morning to ask us to go and liberate his dog, who'd probably been crossing his legs for hours awaiting his master's return. So, at 6:30 Friday morning, Handsome and I brought Stout home to stay with us for a while.

The two Labs are good friends, and have spent lots of time together, so Kes is glad to have him around...as long as he doesn't try to play with her toys, and as long as he stays well clear of her food dish! Besides, she really thinks he's kind of a debonair fellow! (Just look at his way with the ladies.) Kes loves 'em tall, dark and mysterious. This ought to be fun.

Your dogs look like they are enjoying each others company and I hope that Stout's papa makes a speedy recovery. Your sweater will be pretty in any color. I really love the pattern because of the elegant lacy look to it. Have a wonderful weekend. Your Missouri Friend.
