For some reason that escapes me, I woke up this morning with a pounding headache, following a decidedly uneventful evening that involved neither knitting nor alcohol consumption. Coffee and ibuprofen have thus far provided little relief, so I have nothing to report on the knitting front.
Instead, for your enjoyment, I offer this completely gratuitious bit of cuteness:
This is Ebony (pending a name change), my friends' nine-week-old puppy, who just joined the family yesterday, and dropped by for a quick visit this morning. She's actually much cuter than this, but this is the only shot I could get of her sitting still. :-)
Along with Ebony came some lovely belated birthday presents:
Some heavenly scented stargazer lilies and—actual knitting-related content!—a Szechuan Scarf kit ("ingredients for a spicy scarf included") and a gift certificate for a LYS, The Knit and Stitch Shoppe in West Vancouver. Thank you Michelle, Rosemary & Mike!
