One Project Done


Today I finally got around to finishing up the dish and bone that go along with this puppy (pattern by Jean Greenhowe). Meital has had the puppy for a while now, but the project didn't feel complete to me until I'd finished the accessories. Now I'm trying to figure out if I should make her another toy as a surprise for Chanukah, or maybe give her something to wear (fingerless mitts?).

Meanwhile, I'm working on another gift that is coming along nicely. I've managed a few rounds on Avi's second sock today, but I really need a nice long chunk of time. He needs to go to Jerusalem again on Sunday, so I hope that will be my opportunity. I have an idea for another gift, which I will start as soon as I finish the other one. Sorry to be so vague, but I don't know if potential recipients are reading this blog.

The cookies have been a big hit (no surprise there, I guess). And other than that, the only thing I have to tell you is that this little guy


has been waking us up at about five every morning this week (kingfishers have quite a raucous call when they're in flight).

I hope to have more baked goodies to share with you tomorrow (wish I could share them in person!).

Just so sweet! Does it say "Cookie" on the dish? That was my dog's name. I looked at the patterns and there are too many that I like. Policeman for my grandson (dad is one). Nurse (my daughter). All the "food" knitted items. Way too much fun!!!! Thanks for sharing the link again.

What a beautiful bird! I wish I could offer you my ears so you could turn them off at night when you need to. Meantime, that dog and dish are adorable. Knitted whimsy.

How cute! My bear is stalled while my knitting ADD is taking me in all other directions.

You are so clever; the kids don't have pets, do they? Happy knitting.

I love the puppy and the accessories. Sooo cute!

Caramel mini-chips? I wish I could find them here. Better yet, I wish you were here to bake for me. Yum!!
