My oldest WIP…

…of the knitting kind would have to be Madli’s Shawl. I cast on for her over a year ago and she sits in her basket barely getting any love at all. This is through no fault of her own, it’s all mine.

Now my very oldest WIP at this time of the non-knitting kind would have to be…Dobby. Unlike Madli who is inarticulate and lacks the ability to scream at me for attention, Dobby is definitely in my face daily and getting the attention she needs.

You see, we have reached a very special milestone. Her 18th birthday.


As you can see in this photo, she is the epitome of grace (that’s pumpkin guts she’s snorting there, in case you’re wondering). She gets the gracefulness from my side of the family – the yelling and the inability to do math were the gifts she received from her father’s side. ;o)

I’m all emotional at this turn of events so I’d like to ask you all to help me in wishing her a happy 18th, thanks!

P.S. to Dobby – the answer? is no. I don’t care how old you are, you aren’t getting a door on your room and I’m not gonna stop logging your internet usage. Privacy is a privilege! Love you!
