After Friday night’s frog-strangler, I am delighted to report three finished objects. First, is Fishy. He just needed some eyes, and a lip tuck. The eyes are merely permanent marker, because this is intended to be a pet toy. His lips are just rolled up inside themselves so that if the recipient wants to add a squeaker or a bell or whatever, she easily can. It should also be washable for a long life of human and pet play!
Next came the be-frogged burp cloth. Sugar ‘n Cream in Faded Denim. I had to monkey around a bit with the Mason Dixon pattern, but at 40 stitches on my #6 Bryspuns, I found something close to gauge.
However, my happiest project is Michelle’s Snowman Hat, in an infant size she’s going to post soon. I knitted it in the round because I avoid seams at all costs. Paton’s Shetland in Aran, #8 dpns, a quiet morning, and you too can knit the cutie pie in your life a snowman hat.
Sissy finds the darnedest things as toys. Remember this?
Sissy found Mugsy’s Halloween costume and was running through the house with it, so the Knight thought she might want to wear it. She did. We weren’t able to capture a great photo, but…
It’s hardly the best photo for the big news I have to share. At 13.5 weeks, Missy Sissy Princess of Potty is housebroken, as long as the humans are paying attention! She even has a little routine to get the humans to note her need. She trots to the door (the CORRECT door now), turns around to face the humans, and sits down. Should we fail to notice her, she’ll squirm, “bump” the door and whine or moan. Hooray!
