Rainy Monday

It has been a rather dreary, rainy Monday here in Lapdog country. It was actually a rather rainy, blah weekend as well... and we've got a few more days of rain ahead of us. Oh joy... muddy paws... lots of muddy paws.

Even though it was a rainy weekend, I didn't get quite as much knitting done as I had hoped, but I still have a couple finished objects to show off. First up, 3 very basic preemie hats for the donation in honor of Emma. I adored the jester hat I made last week, but figured for this purpose, basic + quick = more hats produced. I cranked out these 3 over the past week and a half...

Ravelry project link is here. I used scraps of Moda Dea Tweedle Dee (blue tweed) and Plymouth Encore Chunky (yellow) that I had laying around, as well as some Moda Dea Baby Talk (light purple). I actually like the fabric that was produced from the thicker yarns better than the Baby Talk.

My other FO was Bella's Rockstar Scarf (again, Ravelry project link). I was originially going to knit a rock-n-roll style outfit for a teddy bear as Isabella's 3rd birthday gift, however when her Mom said she didn't have much interest in her current teddy bears, I instead set my sights on this cute puppy dog...

Armed with some funky pink yarn that I found in my stash (the label says it is Made in Italy and brand is "Coral" - and it was greatly discounted whenever I did add it to my stash), I cast on 14 stitches and knit.. and knit... (garter stitch). I thought Bella would adore the color and funkiness of the yarn and that both she and Mr. Puppy Dog can wear the "Rockstar Scarf."

As usual, I had some nosey onlookers during the photoshoot...

Of course, Lola couldn't stand looking from a distance for too long... and even Sophie had to come check out what was going on, but Zeus couldn't have cared less.

Tut might look like he was innocently trying to give Mr. Puppy Dog a kiss in this picture, but I can assure you that was just a test to see if he was going to bite back...

For a second I thought it was Mr. Bettis and not Tut in the picture. Their coloring is similar. However I know Mr. B would've already had it in his mouth running. LOL

Love the projects!
