What have I learned while I've been away from blog land......
1. Sick dog who has turned away from his dog food will eat human food no matter what. Mr Stubbs cannot eat all that he wants and that somethings just shouldn't be eaten. Silly old dog ate something (your guess is as good as mine. He has been know to eat Bar-B-Q parts) he shouldn't and had gotten really sick and for 3 days laid around the back yard turning away from his food. Just when I was about to take him in to the Vet he started to wag his tail. Hummmm I needed to see just how sick he was. I offered him a cracker...... zipppp down it went burp....... I offered him mac and cheese. He perked up I'll tell you. Now he is back to his barking self.
2nd thing I learned. Never asume your not going to like a color combination. A friend asked me to knit up a baby sweater for her. Yes of course what color what style. I'm a knitter on a budget and if someone is willing to buy yarn for me to knit. Yippie. Pink and brown. My heart sank. I'm not fond of the combo but she was. How would I put the two together. Between you and me I had to think a while. It had to be pink and brown together and it had to have ruffles. No such pattern around or that I could find. I would have to modify a pattern. I looked over my old stand by the seamless yoke and thought it could be modified. After a week of knit, rip, knit, rip, I finished. I have to say I really like it. Just goes to show, you can't judge a sweater before you finish it. I added booties and a hat. Now one of the ladies at Lindsay's school wants the same sweater in a 12 month size. I think I can make a bigger size. Sure I can knitters can do anything.
Back to knitting I only have a week to knit up the next baby sweater.
