Yes, that's right folks, I've had dogs all my life and have never made a doggie coat. However, I kind of felt I had to try one and I really surprised myself. What I thought I couldn't do ... I could !! yaaay
A very kind lady from Knit4Charities sent me a book full of dog coats and it has some really cute patterns. I really enjoyed making this little coat - all I need now is a Chihuahua to go with it. Or perhaps I'll donate it to one of our charities.
Also been making a few squares for charity. These, along with other donated squares will be made into blankets for Ronald McDonald House in Canberra. I always have fun with squares and go berserk with colour. Might have to do a few more before sending them off to the lady who will be joining them together.
We've been sweltering here lately but I've started getting organised for when the cold weather hits in a few months time. I like to donate hats, scarves, fingerless mitts for the homeless each year so need a good supply. I'm thinking of doing cowls too this year as they seem to be all the go at the moment. I also think they're better than a scarf as they don't fall off. I have a couple of hats already done and finished this one on the weekend.
Madison has found herself a new friend in Charlotte and she sits with her every morning, catching a bit of sun through the lounge room window - can't you just hear her saying "does this angle make me look fat"?
Have a great week.
