Modern Blocks Knitted Blanket

Last night Sophie hurt her paw somehow and we ended up in the doggie ER at 1:00 this morning. We were worried she had broken something but they thought she might have something lodged in her foot instead. All they did was poked a needle in it though. Poor thing. We think they were way off base on that so we left with her feet all wrapped up, some pain pills and $160.00 bill. We finally got to sleep about 3:30 this morning. She is doing better now and our vet thinks it is just a bruise so we are watching her for now.
On another note. I finished knitting this blanket last week and forgot to share it. I think it took me about 8 months to knit it but that is because I only knit for about 1/2 hr each day. My next knitting project is a doggie sweater for Lily. I know she is not going to need it for awhile but at least I will have plenty of time to finish it. It is already half done though. When I am done with that I think I am going to start working on my quilt again and hopefully finally finish it.
Tonight is the finale of American Idol. My favorite is David C but I think David A is going to win it. I actually think it is better that way so David C will have more freedom to do his own stuff. I have found that the past winners first albums have not been very good because the winner does not have much control over them. A lot of my other favorite shows are coming to an end too. Last night was the season finale of Dancing With the stars as well. I knew Kristy was going to win she deserved it though. Some of my favorite summer shows have already started again. I hope Deanna on the Bachlorette will find real love this time. So You Think You Can Dance starts tomorrow night and BB will start up again in about a month. I also saw that The Mole is coming back too. Hopefully that will be a show Rich and I can watch together. Well that's about it for now. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a good night.

Very pretty blanket. Love the colors, it looks like it could be the background of a card also.
It's super that you stay committed to a 30 minute a day schedule in knitting. The same amount of time in life would of passed but you ahve something to show for it now.
I was rooting for Kristi from the beginning of Dancing With The Stars. I thought she was fabulous.
