gimme a........

Ok, it IS getting colder here, and the weather guy said this week that this is supposed to be the worst winter in 50 years! So, when life gives you crappy weather, what do you do? Make sweaters, of course!
This is the must have cardigan. I've had the yarn and the pattern for some time. After bee fields went to hibernate for a while, I decided I needed to make something big. And, since blue moon hasn't gotten the new yarn for moonstruck yet, I'm going for the cardigan. So far, a pretty easy knit.

I also got a couple of books this week that I had pre-ordered from amazon. Sock yarn one-skein wonders and brave new knits. I've only taken a quick look at them, but I think they're going to be great. I love that the brave new knits also has a little article about each designer.

The critters are all doing great. Puppy's growing like a bad weed.
It's a tough life ya know........

baby cinnamon brown

baby yogi.
There's just nothing cuter than a boxer baby.....

Ok. I'll give you the Baby Boxer comment, but I'm thinking there's nothing cuter than a Baby Ozzie.
(unless it's a Baby Tonk!)
You go girl, on that sweater...I'm thinking I really need to make my first one, too (not like I don't have plenty of yarn for it).

I don't know it seems like a baby any kind of dog ends up being super cute. But little Yogi seems to be a leader of the pack.

Your sweater looks great. I keep thinking maybe I should knit another sweater and then I start something else.

From another 'other' Washingtonian. I'd love to know that name of that Paton sweater you're doing. I'm in a big sweater cycle right now. Just finished Hannah Fettig's Effortless Cardigan. LOVE the color :)
