Just when I thought I'd seen my last pair of BLACK fingerless gloves, one of DD's work colleagues who bought some last winter, has now asked for a pair for her daughter. I can't believe that Bendigo Woollen Mills don't have black in their Classic range as that's my preferred wool for these gloves. Ended up having to get Luxury which is lovely but I really didn't enjoy making this particular pair because it kept splitting - not sure if it was the wool, the hook or me but I must say I was pleased when I finished these today.
An odd request I had from same DD which I first refused but later gave in (as you do when you're such a wonderful Mum lol) ... and at the risk of being considered quite mad, have tonight made some puppy slippers ...
When one of DD's work colleagues mentioned that she'd like a little Dachshund baby, Nat sprung into action, rang a few breeders and had found one for her about half an hour later. Baby is 4 weeks old now and will be going to his new home in another 2 weeks. Do you think the slippers will keep his little paws warm ?
Since we're talking about dogs, our house doesn't seem quite right since we lost our last little Japanese Chin a few months ago. I've been thinking about getting another dog but can't decide what I'd like. Thanks to the internet, here's a couple of pics of the breeds I'm currently thinking about - Boston Terrier, Chihuahua, French Bulldog. What do you reckon ?
