Meet Sis

Pepper and Riley 1

So at the agility trial over Thanksgiving Day weekend. Pepper met up with his sister, literally! Meet Riley, on the left. Riley was taken into a foster home the same day I took Pepper home. Riley parents adopted her about a month later. What are the chances of meeting up with a litter mate? They look so alike in some ways and completely different in others. Lots of the same mannerism and temperament. Pepper received second place on his first run, and Riley received first on her second run. Yeah to the mixed breeds!!

Happy Thanksgiving

Here in St. Louis, there is a little of the white stuff. Looks so pretty watching it from the windows. I hope everyone has a lovely time hanging out with family and friends for Thanksgiving.

Another Hat? Really!

Yeah, it's still about knitting for the holidays. I think this is the last knitted garment for hubby's side of the family. I still have another weaving project to do, but overall I think I'm in good shape there. Anyhow, this one is for my brother in law. No real pattern, just simple. I could knit a hat in a dark alley at this point. Anyhow, just sharing this because Victoria is in the dog house again.

Another Hat

Yep, I like making hats. They are quick to do, and just plain fun. This is a free Ravelry pattern that should have buttons where the garter stitch ridges are, but I don't think I will be adding them. The hat is one of my handspuns that my SIL fell in love with, so guess who is getting it for Christmas! Good thing because it doesn't fit my peanut head.

A Dog and some weaving

My Spot

Since Buster has commandeered the craft table, he now has to stay for photos. Here is just a few bookmarks I made for Christmas. Mainly just practicing on the loom. Easy, peasy, and useful for a few people that I work with.

Christmas Bookmarks See he make sure he is still in the close up!

I feel like I have had this puppy on the needles forever! I guess if I was really working it exclusively, it might be closer to the finish line. I decided that it's cold, and I need this sweater to be wearable soon. I have the back completed and started on the left front last night. It's moving like molasses, but so pretty. Hope you extra hour is spent on something fun.

Imagine another hat! I think it might be too big. I guess we'll see.
