Hi, I'm back! Can't shake the tiredness out of my bones today. Maybe that is because Sam gave me a jump start this morning. Out of deep sleep to the sounds of dry heaving. We just made it out the door, everything in our way flying in all directions. Blurry eyed and with hair pointing in all directions I had to watch him pee and sniff, and - nothing else. But we had this same scenario before. The hoopla of getting outside in time makes it all go away (but not every time). I give both of them their food twice a day, because I know, that they will vomit orangey slime, if it's been too long since they had their last meal. Well, that was my morning awakening!
On to nicer things. I made this little baggy out of the book "Folk Bags" by Vicki Square. It's called Basketweave Drawstring Bag, and I made the little one. It's 10" by 8", and if you think this was a fast knit, you are dead wrong! It's the stitch pattern you know, it takes forever while at the same time crippling your fingers. I'm serious! But I survived and I do love the outcome.
Now, I had to choices how to present it to you. First, I could have filled it with sparkling gem stones, or I could use some doggie treats. Hm, tough choice! ;o)
I'm still working my way through my knitting books, one down, a million to go.
The yarn I've used, you want to know? It's Endless Summer Collection - Luna, color # 9762, 4 1/2 balls! of it (double strand). It's a viscose/cotton blend. The bag, as small as it is, weighs heavy in your hands, even without any treats in it. It's lovely and I like bags in all sizes.
I've also finished my Sakura Triangle Shawl, it's still blocking; have to get the pins out today. I'm waiting for nice sunshine and Hannah to come home, so I can take pictures. I've even written down the instructions and will post as soon as there are some pictures.
And, drum roll please, I've unpacked my new sewing machine and made two little bags for one sock project each. Have to take pictures as well, as soon as I've better light around here.
Now that there's no rain or snow for once, I should hot foot it to the garden and do some work there.
This little princess can make you feel guilty, even if you just served her a meal on a silver tray! She's dreaming of doing this...
