Mae’s current poncho
My daughter refuses to wear pretty much any outer garment besides her sweater poncho lately, and it’s constantly getting dirty. I’d really like to knit her a new one for Christmas, but I’m having trouble choosing a pattern. There are so many cute patterns out there, but there isn’t one that jumps out at me as perfect. So I’m putting it to a vote for my blogger friends. Here are my current options. Let me know which you think is cutest.
They sure look cozy. Maybe I should knit one for myself while I’m at it?
For extra knitting photo fun, here’s the dog sweater I just finished for my Mom’s dog, being modeled by my cats (they are such good sports!).
“I don’t know about you, Gloria, but I for one highly approve of our new ‘yogurt for breakfast’ routine.”
“As do I, Cleo, as do I. You’ve got a little on your beak, there.”
“You don’t say? I was just going to tell you the same thing, Gloria.”
“I guess it’s a good thing that it’s raining, and we have a lot of nice wet grass to clean up with after breakfast.”
My sister, Kristin Warner, wrote a novel and it’s being released today! I helped her with the design and self-publishing and it’s been a blast! You can read the first 3 chapters on her website and if you like it, you can buy the book in either eBook or printed versions. Check it out here:
We cracked open Gloria’s first 2 eggs this morning, and were surprised by the dark orange yolks with a little spot of red (blood?) in each. This is what they looked like:
Is this normal? Has she been drinking the blood of her victims? (It was Halloween yesterday, after all.) Has she found a rogue rooster with whom she’s been having a secret affair and been impregnated? Is something wrong with her? None of Cleo’s eggs has looked like this.
