Won't ANYbody play ball?

Is that one dejected looking puppy, or what?
Monday night while Darling and I were inserting magazines into the envelopes prepared last weekend, Zoey (Canadian Guild of Knitters' mascot since 2004) asked to get in on the fun. The problem is, her idea of fun is chasing the ball that she dropped into the box top in the background.
She looked so sad, I grabbed the camera and took this shot. Really, she *could* have licked a few of those envelopes while she was there! (not really... we use an envelope sealer for that -- don't be alarmed!)

Yesterday morning I got a chance to block the scarf made from the Noro Silk Garden Sock yarn. It gained 2 1/4 inches in width and almost 14 inches in length! I'm very pleased with the way it opened up the double eyelets.
The knitters at guild the other night tried to convince me about the yarn, but still, I'm looking for substitutes to produce the final draft of this pattern.
This morning the Canadian Guild of Knitters' website ( got an update. Do stop by and visit the sites of our retailers. I enjoy doing this periodically myself!
So, now that the website and blog are updated, it's off to work on the next issue of Knit Together!
