Oh no! No no no.

Over the summer I finished my Campside Shawl. And I loved it. Love the color, loved the eyelets. Loved loved loved.

Unfortunately, the yarn was given to me. And it wasn’t superwash. But I’d repeatedly heard “You need heat and friction to felt something.” And the shawl got soaked and smelled terrible. So I put it in the wash. You see where this is going.

Wahhh!

Need to find new, superwash, dk yarn.

Pugs & Patterns

I saw on our local Nextdoor site that someone was giving away what looked like a giant dog playpen, and with camping in our future, I thought it might be a good place to stash the fur kids for a few moments.

Unfortunately, looks can be deceiving. We have three dogs.

Meanwhile, back on the needles, I’m working on a scrap based cowl 🙂 It features a non-cable and a little bit of striping in helix.

IMG_20190901_111442Took our younger set, Maggie & Alfie, to the new Dog Park at Mackenzie. They weren’t entirely sure why we had taken them someplace with dogs, they’re not entirely sure they like dogs. Plus there were no couches.

 

 

 

 

But this Spaniel realized I had treats. Her name’s Sophie and she was good hanging with the people. Who had the treats.

And we met Gus, who is a white pug but is actually a pug/Boston Terrier mix. He was 5 months and very sweet and running around trying to see what was going on.

Then we spent a lot of the rest of the day like this, because dogs are exhausting, Mama.
