WIP Wednesday: Knit Bunny

So, lately I have been knitting stuffed toys from Knit Animals Friends by Annie’s, and I’m doing finishing work on a bunny and am working on a dog as a follow up.  The photo at the top is where I left off with the bunny.  He’s taking shape! I decided to knit toys because I […]

Guilty

Has it really been over a month since I last posted?  That’s bad, and I’m guilty of being a bad blogger.  To be honest, I needed a break.  I was burned out on writing and even a little bit with knitting. I’m a little more re-energized now.  I concentrated on a different things, like crocheting […]

Knitting Over Lunch at Work

The government entity I work for is having a “Knitting Over Lunch” group once a week.  A lady from another department runs and teaches it.  I’ve gone twice now.

Cone-free Doggie

My husband and I took off Sputnik’s cone, ZenTube, and bandages off yesterday.  He was nekked for  little bit, but we did put his regular collar back on him, of course.  Cone-free doggie, at last!  Since the cone has come off, he’s once again curious about yarn, but there’s improvement. I inadvertently used natural fibers […]

Dog v. Yarn and Something Cool

The battle of Dog v. Yarn is getting better.  Sputnik is still curious about what I’m doing with string, but has learned, with the back up with a spray bottle, that yarn is a not a toy.  I’ve also been sticking to synthetic fibers as not to entice his nose with natural ones.  That’s another […]
