From the little dogs and boy's perspective, carpet is the best thing since the milk bottle (or what it replaced). We keep the living room carpeted for the old dogs. With sheddy little dogs, dirty little boy, dirty big guy, the carpet is always a dirt and fur heaven. Once in a blue moon I have it cleaned. Dogs are kept away for couple of days. As soon as they are let back on the carpet, Bang! like clock work, one of them throws up in less than five minutes. This time I was pretty sure it was Bucky. It was next to his bed. What can I say, he needs his smell. Apparently the sniffer still works.

Triangles on the sides:
Row 1 (right side): pick up 12 sts
Row 2 and all wrong side rows: purl
Row 3 and remaining right side rows: knit till 2 sts left, k2tog
Cast on 77 sts, k1 p1 for 1 in.
Pick up for the first triangle. Knit one triangle at a time and leave 2 sts open between each triangle.
When picking up for the first set of diamonds, anchor the center 2 sts on the ribbing. Do the same when picking up all the diamonds (pick up 8 sts from the side of a diamond, 2 sts from the diamond below). This way the diamonds look more connected.
Arm hole shaping: decrease 1 st per row at each end for 2 rows.
Neck is natually shaped by the diamonds and triangles.
Cast on 77 sts, k1 p1 till it's same length as front with no shaping for armholes or neck. Back will pull in a bit and that's ok.

Things that only a mother would care, like watching your baby sleep. Listen carefully and you can hear Bucky's snoring. I felt kinda guilty for having to wake him up so I could make a video. The other day I took three separate clips, about a minute each, of Bucky sleeping, because he was deep in la la land and wouldn't get up on his own.
