This is the hat I made (and please- don't ask for a pattern- I designed this one as I knit it- and stopped when it looked like a hat!) My SP9-who has since revealed herself as the lovely Trish from The Tangled Arts (http://www.seetrishknit.blogspot.com/) sent me 2 skeins of Elann Highland Peruvian wool. Pretty nice stuff. So I made a hat. Bear decided to get in on the modelling-you can see the giant poodle paws. After I made it, my husband was looking at it and asked if it was for him. Of course I said it was (although it matched my green coat) so now I need to make another hat for myself. Instead of doing i-cord ties-I edged it in i-cord-I did a twisted cord. I kinda like them there twisted cords.
I just found out that a neighbour (who borrowed our cam corder) taped over all of the baby pictures we had of Annie-he just picked a tape out of the case and used it-and we now have lots of pictures of his kids playing, and none of Annie as a baby and Bouf as a pup.
I am so sad.
