This dog is happy!
I finished knitting this dog bed for my friend's dog Bosco. I was worried that perhaps the little guy might not know what to do with the fluffy contraption, perhaps try to eat it since it does look somewhat like a giant cheese burger. To my pleasant surprise Bosco went immediately to the bed and curled right up inside and has claimed his new space! Nothing makes a knitter happier than a recipient who likes their knitted gift!
Now that's a happy pup! Mission accomplished.

More Luxuria
Perry knitted a hat. In my last post I showed the vintage yarn he had given me and how it knitted up with a scarf. Well...using the yarn in the round gave a very different result! I love how colorways can give a totally different effect with different projects! Check this out...
Isn't that fun? I love this yarn!

That's all. Just a quickie this week. More to come.

Vintage Knitting
My newest knitting friend Perry happened across some vintage yarn and gave me a couple skeins. LUXURIA from Bernat. Fun colors. Virgin wool....check it out:
Isn't she lovely?

Claudia has left us for Germany. I finished up a hat for her before she flew away. Here are some photos of her modeling the goods:
How's that for some Fair Isle??? I actually enjoyed making this for her. Once I got into it I turned the entire hat out in an afternoon. The pattern is the "Inga Hat" from Ravelry. Worth the effort, and rather impressive if I do say so myself! Hope she gets to wear it in Germany.
Lou also liked the hat and tried it on inside out...I think it's his best side....
And finally, Steve had his birthday last week. We all went to dinner and I gave him the socks I had promised him from last Christmas. Ok....the Doctor is knda slow....but I do deliver eventually!
Steve has very big feet. It took me a while to get these socks done! You know what they say:
Big feet.....Big socks....right?
Mr. Sock says hello there kids! Gosh I'm comfortable...hehe

That's all for this week. As you can see I am learning to use the camera and loving it.

Until next time
Knit on...
