So sorry about going on and on about the new pup but seriously, that's
all I'm up to. I don't have a moment where my attention is not focused
completely on her. She is so bad. She isn't even napping much during the
day anymore. I did find one thing that she likes. She likes to rock in
the rocking chair while I spin. The motion seems to calm her crazy arse
down. At this point, I'll do anything for some peace and quiet.
She has also outgrown her one and only sweater so I had no choice but to make her a new one. After looking closely at this one and reading up on some patterns, I realized it's just two rectangles with a collar.
The rectangle for the underside is just ribbing and the leg holes are just where you don't sew the two together. She hated the collar so I skipped it.
I had some of this in the stash for no good reason, so I gave it a try
I held my breath hoping the floral part would show up before I ran out of dog. It just did.
I found out I could knit this simple thing and walk at the same time so I followed the little demon around the house for a few hours while I worked it. When she took a brief nap I used my sloppy mattress stitch on it and when she woke up she had a new sweater.
It is much more comfy that the store bought one as it has lots more give. It did fit but I could have made it a few inches longer and wider. I have plenty more yarn in the stash so I'm pretty sure there will be another one in the future.
I also made her two new blankets out of some fleece Joanne's had on sale. That's my kind of project. All I had to do was to cut the yard in half and then snip some fringe. Done.
