Off the Needles!

I'm so excited!!! See my empty needles?! Tonight while knitting at my LYS, I finished binding off my Dragon Melody Shawl! I'm very happy that this is finished. It's a big project for me and I'm a slow knitter. Now....I need to figure out how to use my new blocking wires and get this baby blocked! I'm counting this as a finished project because it's off the needles.
Here is a picture of our pup Cody. He's afraid of the red light on my camera so it is rare to get a photo of him.
And I can't have a pic of Cody without one of Kenzie. She loves photos but often she photographs as a black blob due to her coloring. She needs to be brushed!
They're sweet pups (most of the time) and we adore them!

Today was a full day of work. Very busy. Here in the US it's not unusual for the day before Thanksgiving to be a partial day of work. Based on the needs of my line of business at work, we worked a full day. There was, however, a different feeling in the air and at the end of the day, everyone seemed to be pretty happy. Happy Thanksgiving!

Your Cody and Kenzie are adorable! I haven't graduated past knitting scarves, but I have certainly enjoyed doing them. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and for your sweet comment. May you have a blessed Thanksgiving...

Your pups are really cute! I think the one is afraid of the red light as he knows the flash comes next and THAT is what frightens him. GREAT job on your completed knitting project, too.

Woohoo on the knitting! :) I so wish I could knit, it must be so fun to do something other than the wonky scarves I've produced. ;) Cody & Kenzie are adorable!
