puppy sitting

Well it's gettin' cold so I got busy and knitted up a little somethin' somethin' to keep my neck warm with leftover (hence the odd color pattern) Rowan Big Wool. Soft and cozy and uber warm on sz. 15 needles. Lots of Christmas Presents to work on, I better get crackin'.

This week I have a tiny pug. Her name is Sister and she is best friends with my beagle Sandy. Together they rummage for smells and play tug of war with Sandy's chipmunk.

They are the cutest dogs ever, even though Sandy has a laser eye.

decoratively hooded pullover

I put the non-finishing touches on my Hooded Pullover tonight.
Exhibit A:

Hmm...(perhaps you are thinking) that is not looking so non-finished. Well to that I offer Exhibit B:

Someone save me before that too small hood eats me alive.

In other news the Quietude for my Phildar sweater is backordered 1-2 weeks leaving me plenty of time to re-work this hood, and a tiny (well 54") beautiful blue Eddy Merckx bike and hopefully on of these will be coming my way tomorrow morning courtesy of Luke, the man who had me start this thing I call snaggle tooth.
