The Life & Whimsies of Knitty Lou

In The Doghouse

Posted on: October 24, 2009

Yesterday, Jack wasn’t feeling quite as well as the day before but not for lack of trying. He would try his darnedest to play for half an hour and then he’d be pooped for a while. But during his “up” times, he managed to cover himself in purple Sharpey and to climb into Diesel’s dog kennel.

And, as always, whenever I have time at home (which as been an exorbant amount in the last 5 days) I knit. I started a new project for Jack since the Baby Surprise Jacket didn’t fit. I have it all done except for the band trim and the sleeves. The yarn is super soft but knotty and it sheds a lot. I hope once it’s washed (it’s super wash) it won’t shed quite as much. I used Spud & Chloe Outter on US 15 32″ needles and the pattern is Spud & Chloe “Playground Hoody”.

LYS SHOUT OUT!

I went to a different LYS on 1 South Broadway in Denver and was delightfully impressed at the different products they carry versus my usual LYS’s. They specialize in eco-friendly and socially conscious yarns. They also carry spinning tools and fibers and well as fabrics and sewing/ quilting tools.

P.S. Hillary, when are you coming home? I miss you and there is yarn calling our names!
