Filler Post

So….what do you blog about when you have spent the last week getting to this point on a new sweater project:


Meet Rogue. If you think it doesn’t look like much in the picture, well it doesn’t look like much in real life either. This has been one of THOSE weeks at work, and I haven’t gotten much knitting done.

We have a house full of new dogs. We are dog sitting for a friend who is taking her male Kerry blue terrier to the Eukanuba dog show this week, and have her two female terriers here. I took pictures of Kiara and Bianca, but honestly, not being their mother, I admit that I can’t always tell them apart. Riley is used to having them around and knows they always go home eventually, so isn’t too worried. The cats, having a much shorter attention span, are pretty certain we’ve done something totally dumb and brought two new dogs here to stay. Willie, ever the adventurer, hasn’t retreated, but is a bit wary. He also just boxed Kiara in the nose a bit ago, so she is learning that cats are not necessarily just for chasing. Lucy is being her usual cowardly self, and we have the upstairs blocked off with a baby gate so she has a safe haven. Here they are, obviously making themselves at home.




Competition in the Knitting Doctor world!

Go here and meet Kristen. Another knitting doctor (well, doctor-to-be). Woo Hoo! We’re taking over the blogging world! Here’s to knitting in class!

  1. Woohoo!!! Yea for Rogue. I love your yarn. I have some of the Beaverslide…but decided to use the JO Sharp Aran Tweed. I’m doing Rogue also and started on the sleeve. I’m a little hesitant also (more difficult than anything I have done) but still going for it. Good luck with her. We can do it!!! 🙂

  2. Oooh, I love kerry blues. They are the coolest little dogs. I really liked the little guy that won I think best of show two or three years ago.

  3. Hiya Lorette,
    Perhaps we can take over soon. I started blogging at the beginning of January, in between my tasks as an anesthesiologist.
    I like your books. Have Barzun, haven’t gotten to it yet (too much knitting). Just got Cecil for the residents’ library. (Am boarded in medicine and anesthesia…….)

  4. So, just for fun I put “knit doctor” into google and found your site.
    I’m Family Practice x 18 years. I was following a wonderful site: of a knitting doc in her last year of FP residency and transition to a real job…., but she seems to be taking a break right now.
    As you say, I knit as a kid, took a break for 30 years, was doing crochet and embroidery and weaving in those years and now picked up knitting again last year and have been going bonkers. I’ve had to promise myself not to work on more than 5 projects at one time. I just felted a purse,and am working on a lacy silk blouse, eyeglass cases, an Aryan sampler pillow and cotton lace sachets. I’m trying to use up my 20 year accumlation of wool and cotton yarn but I want to knit more with linen and hemp and bamboo. I’m getting braver about knitting at staff meetings as well as CME and I found myelf sitting in my car for lunch yesterday so I could stay warm and dry and still knit.
    Keep up the fun site.
    I loved the stuff on your family too. I wish I could find time to get my genealogy and photos on the web.
