This is my new yarn.
I started socks but alas, I fear I will run out with just two skeins for two socks.
Here's the plan: Frog it.
I think a little girl would LOVE mittens in this fun color way.
Mittens are kind of socks...right? Less yardage right?
My LYS is offering a class for this Knotted slipper pattern.
I like the look. Do you?
I won't make them.
Sometimes you just love a pattern but you know you won't knit it.
Last week Fireman and I stopped at a little bakery in a tiny town.
My friend Jill called me this weekend.
It was warm Saturday and the neighbors were having a campfire.
Kids running, dog running.
Then a growl and a scream.
Her Allison, was bit in the face.
She'll be okay.
But it will be months of skin care to avoid a scar.
She was bit very close to her eye.
So far things are improving.
I love dogs.
I wish people would keep the dog leashed with the adults, so in fairness they don't view kids as part of the pack.
My own Huck was as "proofed" as one could be.
My mother said he was the BEST dog they ever knew.
And they knew a lot of dogs.
Yet my mom would say, "Never forget he's an animal"
and I would add,
"Never forget they are kids"
Is there a campaign to prevent bites?
I think I'll research this.
Maybe I'll help with this in some way.
