Princess Trixie & some stash enhancement

Trixie arrived safely on Saturday and has been making like a princess ever since! (click on her name for her official Petfinder listing)

She's a petite little thing... Pomeranian mix, about 5 years old... possibly mixed with Pekingese or maybe chow (she has the blue/black tongue). I keep wanting to call her Foxie instead though - she looks a lot like a cute little red fox pup!

She is an absolutely doll and sweetheart, though she prefers humans over stupid furry creatures dogs for sure. She shows NO interest in playing with our dogs or the gazillion toys... and has growled and snapped at them a few times when she doesn't want them interrupting her time with us. Of course, they all basically have heads bigger than her whole body and look at her as if to say "Are you friggin kidding me???," knowing all to well that one snap from Zeus she'd be history - luckily our big guy is a bit of a pushover!).

Tut can't figure out why the heck this fuzzy thing won't play with him, even when he annoys the heck out of the rest of the house baits her with his version of howl/singing...

Trix would rather do her "catdog" impersonation and sit on the back or arm of a couch, acting like the little Princess she is.



And sleep with the other princess, Lola...

We're guessing she was probably someone's spoiled little girl who got groomed lots. Get this - you say "bath" and she gives you the same happy look & wiggles as most dogs give to "cookie" or "treat." Could it really be? A dog who likes baths??!! Anyway, I think she'll thrive as an only-doggy and will make a perfect companion to an older couple or person who just wants to be loved and adored by the little furball .... compact in size, she'll go anywhere...

In knitting news, I was reading about Heather's (who currently got her hands full with her fist ever foster, Frankie, an adorable Australian Shep girl) stach enhancement and thought I'd share some of mine as well. I certainly don't need to enhance it, but I was on a little mini shopping whim last week and acquired the following...

Lorna's Laces Worsted in a deep plum for another pair of cable footsies, Lorna's Laces in Vera for socks (I had a duh moment and only ordered 1 skein, so I placed another quick order for 1 more), some Noro Kochoran in blues & pinks that was on SALE (oh what should I do with this yummy stuff???) and this adorable felted Gerber Daisy (my favorite flower!) kit, also on SALE...

I got this wonderful, local wool in a heathery purple shade from Dorsey's Wool. This comes from a fellow dog rescue volunteer who raises sheep in Walpole, MA and it is sooooooo soft and wonderful that I ordered 4 more skeins so I have enough for a winter sweaeter!

Some silky wool for the Somewhat Cowl (pattern also purchased last week)...

I had pre-ordered the new Special Little Knits from Just One Skein book during the yarn dyeing class at Yarn & Fiber and just received it, hand signed to me from Cheryl. I also bought a skein of the CTH glitter alpaca for a scarf in the book.

On Friday I received this most gorgeous piece of handcrafted jewelry, my absolutely stunning Brandon Bracelet from Lisa. Thank you Lisa, the fit and colors could not possibly be more perfect - I love it! Lisa is the designer & owner of Bella Perlina and decided to graciously give all the girls who helped in Brandon's search one of the bracelets as a thank you. They are amazing - if you need something special for Mother's Day, definitely click on over to her site! The picture does not do the bracelet justice, but I'll try.

Wow... I feel like I sure have blogged a lot in the last week! Hope you're keeping up...

Great haul this weekend! I especially like the yarn you picked for the "Somewhat Cowl". I love Wendy's site!

That bracelet is beautiful.

whoa! That doggie kinda looks evil...but I bet she's cute as a button in real life.

LOVE that new Lorna's Laces you got and the silky wool. Can't wait to see the knitted item with that!

The bracelet is gorgeous! If only I didn't buy so much handmade jewelry from my WW leader already....

The yarn is gorgeous - especially the purple handspun - wow. And Miss Trixiebell is awfully cute, but Poms really are more like cats than dogs. Still, how can she not fall in love with your 3 sweethearts?

My dog , Zoe, is just like that too. She'd much rather hang out with the human folk than the canines.

Trixie remings me of my grandma's dog, Shag. What a character!
