Cone-free Doggie

My husband and I took off Sputnik’s cone, ZenTube, and bandages off yesterday.  He was nekked for  little bit, but we did put his regular collar back on him, of course.  Cone-free doggie, at last!  Since the cone has come off, he’s once again curious about yarn, but there’s improvement. I inadvertently used natural fibers […]

Dog v. Yarn and Something Cool

The battle of Dog v. Yarn is getting better.  Sputnik is still curious about what I’m doing with string, but has learned, with the back up with a spray bottle, that yarn is a not a toy.  I’ve also been sticking to synthetic fibers as not to entice his nose with natural ones.  That’s another […]

My First Sweater: A Look Back

See that person up there?  Yup, that’s me, modeling the first sweater that I ever knit.  I wore it yesterday, actually, on the recommendation of someone said that I should. So, here’s a look back at my first sweater.  It’s Pattern 13 in the Noro: Catwalk 2 book by Jenny Watson. I am often afraid […]

Gnome, Come Home!

On Thursday, my garden gnome that usually sits on my porch, was snatched.  Nothing else was damaged or vandalized.  I believe whoever took my gnome knew exactly what they were doing. Above is the most recent pictures of said garden gnome. If you see him or know anything about his current whereabouts, please leave a […]

A Semi-Homemade Halloween

I freaking love Halloween.  Since my husband and I have moved into our new home, I wanted to decorate for the first holiday that it was really possible for:  Halloween.  What the end result was a bunch of semi-homemade Halloween decorations that I plan on building on for the following years. To start with, I […]
