Checking in...

Work has been fairly overwhelming the past few weeks with a few major projects looming. This has left me mentally exhausted at night, which has, in turn, kidnapped my knitting mojo. Last night I had the urge to knit, but with a sick puppy on hand, I had trouble picking and starting a new project. (Oh, anyone have any ideas of what could make a 5 month old puppy extremely lethargic, but not otherwise sick (not vomitting, etc.)).

My Christmas knitting list this year is very modest - though there are still no guarantees that it will be completed. I need to make my dad a pair of gloves to replace one that was lost last year. My sister has requested a pink hat and scarf (though she's now a few rows into her first knitting project so she'll probably knit herself one before Christmas...). The knitting group I attend once a week (when I can get away) at work is working on a charity project to make hats, mittens, and scarves for local elementary kids. And I still have it in my mind to knit Rykert a sweater (this is probably a foolish endeavor as it is unlikely that he would ever wear it). Anyone on my Christmas list who would like something handknit will have to make their requests known... and, within reason, I will try to comply.

But first, I'd like to finish a few baby hats for The Preemie Project's upcoming sale. I'm not sure what I'll get accomplished, but would like to finish at least two.

On that note, hopefully I'll be back soon with some pictures and something interesting to report. I have, in fact, been doing lots of crafting, but very little of it has been knitting related.

With puppies I always guess first that they've eaten something they shouldn't, possibly some non-food item. Most of that kind of thing "passes" but I'd have her checked out by a vet just in case.

I hope your puppy is feeling better soon! Shiloh had only been sick twice and both times it was due to him eating something he wasn't supposed to. I could tell he wasn't feeling well because he was lethargic and did not want to eat. Normally he has a very healthy appetite.

Taking a break from knitting will make it all the more enjoyable when you get back to it. I enjoy seeing all kinds of crafting and would love to see what you've been working on lately.

Regarding your puppy, it's probably nothing, but I've always lived by the saying, "Better safe, than sorry". I'd take her to the vet to be checked out. Not to alarm you, but things like Parvo start out with lethargy and then get much worse. If it's caught early, there is a much greater chance of a full recovery. :o)
