How could I interpret this prompt differently than dogs doing "down"?

Business Casual Socks Knitalong

After a really long time not having taken part in a kal I felt the urge to join in when I saw on Kelly’s blog that she is hosting a sock knitalong. There were different patterns to choose from and the majority of future participants voted for the Business Casual socks and so it is this pattern we are going to knit.

Start is on Feb 4th. Which is great as I have another week to finish my socks in progress aaaaand it looks as I am going to have some time to knit right on the fourth as I am going to pick up a foster dog at the airport, so there should be some waiting time… And I will be off work next week and even if I will do a lot with the dogs, there definitely will be some knitting time!!!

I have already chosen some yarn from my stash, it will be a soft, warm grey, without any ballband on it... But in a week I might also change my decision ;-) I'll keep you updated.

Thanks for visiting! Tina

Ground is still frozen and it's raining now...

Two things

On my desk

A new idea for the blog…

…that sounds fun… that will force me to think a bit outside my box … that will make me being more aware of little details around me … that will let me take and post a picture here each day … that makes me smile thinking of it …

Does this make you curious?

Chantelle aka fatmumslim hosts a photo-a-day challenge at her blog.  For each month of the year she posts a list of daily prompts that are open to photographical interpretation and creativity.

There are various ways to share the pictures, like for instance on blogs, facebook, twitter, flickr, instagram… if you are interested check out the details at Chantelle's blog.

I thought I might take most of my pictures with my mobile phone and upload them directly here so there is no need to sit down with the computer each night. Will make me trying hard to get the best out of that old phone’s camera!

Having learned about the challenge only yesterday I am starting today with my daily photos, but might still take the pics for the first two weeks of the year and post them on the appropriate date afterwards, as it feels somewhat wrong not to have all the pictures taken though that’s not necessary for the challenge (just for my peace of mind).

I will try managed to put a link to the homepage of the challenge on my sidebar.

Now here’s the list for January.

Anyone wanna join in the fun?

Thanks for visiting! Tina
