UFO, FO, Puppies, and Pancakes

Since I took a picture of this, I might as well blog about it.. :P  This is my oldest sons' afghan I am making him. Whether he wants it or not.. lol.  (I hope he will want it.)  I started this as part of his graduation present. Yeah. See how long it's taking me?...   I jokingly said, "I will probably finish this by the time he moves out and it will be a graduation/Housewarming present." Well, I'm even late to the game for that one, too.  Sigh. It will just have to be a present. :P

And, here is an FO. My third "Simple Shrug" I have finished. A friend of ours saw the one(s) I did, on FB. She asked if I could make one for her daughter. I said I could! :)  I used Simply Soft for this one, and an H hook. It came out just on the small size of gauge. But, she wanted a size small. So I think it worked out well..

Here it is on me. I shouldn't have tried it on. Now I have to wash it.  lol.

And look what I got in the mail the other day!!! An RAOK. <3  Someone sent Hobby Lobby to me. :D  I have never tried "I Love This Yarn".  I can see why it is named that. It's sooo soft! And all different colors; to make friendship squares, and who knows what else? :D  I am thinking maybe a scarf for Pine Ridge, with the burgundy. And maybe another shrug with the plum color? I used just over 6 ounces for this last shrug I did, and the skein is 7 oz, plus two little balls extra. So I should definitely have enough.  Thank you, Madison! <3  <3 <3

And, it's been a while since I posted any Puppy Pictures...  :D   This is Max, again. (My brothers' puppy.) He's SO CUTE!!! I just want to hug him, and squeeze him, and kiss him, and love him! And call him George. :P  Maybe someday I will get to go visit my brother (and his puppy) again.  He only lives four hours away. 

And here's one of the latest pictures of Jetta... It's a Rough Life, being a Dog...  :P

And here are the pancakes I was talking about...  I saw someones' post on FB about making "Smores Pancakes".  I googled it, since it sounds yummy.  I saw a bunch of different recipes. Some with crushed graham crackers in the batter...  I finally just made regular pancakes, and put all the toppings on: Crushed graham crackers, mini-marshmallows, and chocolate chips. And since we had some, chocolate syrup. (Plus regular syrup.)  And, I have to say, they are yummy. So yummy, in fact, I couldn't finish them. (Too sweet/much, for me..)  :P  But our 8 year old sure did finish his. :D

I love that shrug....I may just have to subscribe to the digital crochet world to get the pattern!! Been looking for something like that.

Everyone seems to like this one. I like it because it is simple. :) Thanks, Lucy.

Good job, I still wonder how you do all that Tina!
Love the puppy pics and dessert is always tempting...just minimize the sweetness ;)
