I love socks!






It may be 98 degrees in the shade, (I kid you not), but I have become obsessed with knitting socks! I am hypnotized by self-striping yarn, watching the stripes form, wondering how in the world it even happens.

I've found my calling with #1 dpns.

I can turn a heel! I can make toes! And I can even wear my socks in about four or five months! It's all too much!

Here's the pattern I used and it's insanely easy:

lucky's world

I'm Lucky. This is my world.
 I play. I eat. I poop....outside. (I am proud to say I was housebroken very quickly.)
Sometimes it's exhausting being a pup. It's a good thing there are comfy dog beds throughout the house because when I have to crash, I have to crash.
 Pinto is in charge of teaching me the finer points of begging. Pinto ALWAYS gets treats and I am hoping some of this awesomeness rubs off on me.
 Durango is teaching me how to kick back and relax. He's a pro at this. I'm doing my best to follow his lead.
Here I am, in my very own back yard, asking Pinto to play. She likes to chase me around the yard while Durango eats grass. Grass is more exciting than a new puppy? Really?
 They say I'm cute as can be and smart as a whip. All I know is life has been pretty amazing since this pack found me and brought me home.
 Pinto was the first rez dog they adopted. I'm the second. Whenever my humans tell someone I am a rez dog, they tell me how LUCKY I am! I'm not quite sure what a rez dog is, but apparently I am one and that makes me Lucky.
 It wasn't easy, but we did manage to sit still--together--for an entire 1/500 of a second....just so our human could take this photo. We celebrated with alot of hoopla involving tearing it up in the yard.
 More relaxation lessons from the master.
 The humans have a strange thing for dog bellies. They're always taking pictures of my little spotted tummy!
 It's been five weeks since they found me, cleaned me up, and brought me home. They say I fit right in. I say life is pretty darn good.
