Hans and my new smartphone

Posted by Fairy Yarnmother on July 6, 2010

I got a T-mobile smart phone last week, it’s cool.  Had a little trouble setting up the alarm though.  I kept setting it for 7am, but I’d sleep right though it.  So I’d set different tones and kept turning up the sound, etc.  Then I noticed a tiny, little dot by the alarm yesterday and when I clicked on it, it turned out to be the “ON” button.   Felt a bit stupefied by technology at that moment!  Any way, this morning when the alarm went off, all hell broke loose.  It was deafening.   I had turned it up so high and then couldn’t figure out how to turn it off right away.  Hans was so scared of the noises he jumped in my arms in the middle of it.   :)  If you can imagine this big old face coming at you.

Hans and Fiona, sleeping buddies

Posted by Fairy Yarnmother on July 3, 2010

This is the closest Fiona’s let Hans get to her.  She likes Hans best when he’s sleeping.

2 Month Blogiversery

Posted by Fairy Yarnmother on December 3, 2008

Tomorrow is my 2 Month Blog aniversery. Can’t believe I’ve gotten 350 views so far. I’m so grateful to everyone for stopping by and hope that I’ve entertained you. Please keep looking. :)

I’ve been busy getting some work done before the Holidays so I haven’t had time to post anything. I’d like to post more regularly. I took some photos of my dog, Hans, out in the snow. Yesterday I let him out and he stuck his whole face into a snow bank and came up looking like Santa with a white beard. I didn’t have a camera, so today I was prepared.

Here’s Hans playing in the snow:

Running in the yard:

and coming back with snow on his nose to check on me. Click on the photo to better see his brown/green eyes. He’s the sweetest dog in the world:

Here’s some projects that I’ve been working on but haven’t posted.
socks made with both ends of a sock blank. each sock is a reverse of the other. I’m planning on making the stripe until it gets close to the heel and then a intricate fairisle pattern around the cafe.

These socks were made from one of my patterned sock blank. They have a short rowed heel and I’ve made a cable pattern for the back cafe portion of the sock.

These are the socks I just made for my husband on my circular sock machine.
