In snake news, my fingers are still jacked up. The two joints on my ring finger are still pretty sore when I overuse my hand. And I have a lump in my middle finger where the majority of the damage was. It's either scar tissue or a piece of tooth left from Sancho, only time will tell. If it's tooth it will fester out over time.
Not long after Sancho bit me, Isley grazed me during feeding. She's been extremely aggressive at feeding time and we aren't sure why. We are trying to feed her every week to see if that helps, but honestly she doesn't need to be fed that often. We'll see if it how it works out.
The weather is starting to turn here, and fall is in the air. Unfortunately, Gidgit's hair isn't growing back as quickly as I thought it would. So, I've decided to enrich her wardrobe and make her a couple of sweaters. Right now I'm working on a black hoodie that has a skull and crossbones with a bow on it's head on the back. I'm almost done with it and it's thrilling me to death. I make all of Gidgit's sweaters out of acrylic so I can throw them in the wash on hot and dry them on high. I have all these wonderful extravagant projects going right now, and all I want to knit is acrylic dog sweaters, go figure.

I'm also making progress on several other projects including a couple pairs of socks and what has become my own little baby blanket purgatory. Three of my coworkers are pregnant, one of them is having twins, and they are all due in Jan/Feb. That's not really a good time of year for accountants, so we plan to have the huge joint shower in mid December. Since they all kind of piled up on me, I got myself in a little deep.
When the first woman announced she was pregnant I decided I would make her a car-seat blanket, a hat, and booties. Then the next woman announce she was expecting a few weeks later, Ok, I can handle two. Then I came back from vacation to find out the third woman was pregnant with twins. I still plan to make them all car-seat blankets, but I've decided to take the time, energy, and supplies I would have used on the hats and booties, and make those for charity. Hopefully I will have a whole heap of hats and booties that I can donate in these lovely women's names, and hopefully it helps someone in need during this coming winter.
Cheers, and unless I get better at posting more often, see you next month!
