ORANGEina??

Ok, so it isn't orange but it is indeed the first panel of Orangina. I want a black one now too.





I cast on the second panel EARLY this morning. Otis somehow got locked in the basement last night - not sure how that happened but I think the cats had something to do with it. Anyhow, at 5:45AM he was crying for help - we found him at the top of the basement stairs with his head as far as he could get it through the cat door - he's an 80 pound golden retriever so we're talking back of the ears max. The cats were watching him with amusement so I figure they either shut the door intentionally locking him down there for entertainment value or they were thinking "what an idiot, why doesn't he just come through the cat door." In any case, I was up so I figured I might as well get some knitting done - it was actually a very nice way to start the day but I don't think I'll do it again tomorrow.

Oh no! Your poor puppy. The situations pets get themselves into...Love the Orangina. I picked a color similar to yours for mine, although I haven't worked on it in a while. But it's pretty!

Very pretty. I'm glad you won your battle with it too. Isn't it a pretty pattern. I've finished both my panels and I'm quite sad to know I no longer need to work the lace. It was lots of fun.

Glad your puppy was okay. I always said if I didn't have Huskies, I'd have Retreivers. I love their floppy ears. :)
