My Dogs Walk All Over Me

I have so much to share from the weekend, but I can’t wait to share gMarie‘s special project!  She designed My Dogs Walk All Over Me with the very yummy Creatively Dyed Woodbrook in the colorway Dianne named after me!

I have to thank my lovely Ann for the photo, snapped with my Blackberry (see Jessi?!  I *DO* always have a camera with me!) yesterday afternoon on the quaint downtown mall.  Minus the ragged eyebrow, it’s my new favorite photo of me.

Aren’t these lace pawprints PERFECT?!  I just slipped a pretty yellow leaf behind it so you could see it clearly.  I love that the prints don’t SCREAM at anyone unless you’re VERY close.  No need to shout from the mountain tops that my dogs walk all over me, eh?

G has already seen these photos, so I’m only slightly embarrassed to note that my dogs walk all over me AND the lovely handknits.   Somehow, she managed to knit, block and ship from her three-dog house to mine without a SINGLE dog hair, but needless to say, it’s now salted with white and rusty colored hairs!

And yes, there are two cowls in the photos.  There’s a short version that G keeps suggesting I should keep for Sissy, and the longer version I’m sporting in the top photo.  It’s the perfect size; it covers that gap in my shirt and it scrunches up with enough to pull up over my mouth and nose if it is REALLY cold outside!   There’s also an “infinity” version in the works…  I might need to knit that for Wondervet.  She’s a tall Texan, so I’m sure our winters are a bit cool for her neck!

More on my weekend, specifically Mistletoe Market, tomorrow.  I might have to break the goodness up into a couple of posts!

How was your weekend?

    Although this picture is lovely, I wish you had used the other picture! Had a wonderful time at the market. Kids gobbled up the cake pops; T beamed when I gave him the almond and cashew barks.

    Love, Love, Love the pawprints. If I could only train my little Tibetan Terrorist (I mean Terrier) to nibble my handknits in such a sweet motif…!

    That cowl is fabulous!!! Love, love, love it!

  19. […] might remember that the very talented gMarie designed and knitted a very special cowl for both Sissy and me.   Well, that same pattern has an infinity version, and I originally cast […]
