A Snowy Day

A dark, snowy day here is not conducive to picture taking. I meant to snap some shots of the 1960s girl’s sweater. Both sleeves are completed, Nehru collar done and one pocket is in place. It’s a rough prototype and I need to iron out some of the construction kinks. The second pocket is done and ready for blocking.

All blocking must now take place during the day on a board that I can position high up on top of the bookcase where a certain little someone cannot reach. Over night blocking left to fend for itself does not work anymore. Yarn Rascal is not capable of over coming his Yarn Rascal genes. Little one is nocturnal, he roams the house all night. Left alone with unprotected yarn he just can’t help himself.

On the plus side of his yarn affection, I had knit a winter sweater for my first Bichon, Sport. It fit him perfectly, but he hated it. Sport liked micro fleece fabric for his jackets and blankets, he never wore the sweater. Yesterday, with the snow storm coming I dug out Sport’s sweater to see if it would fit Yarn Rascal, as he has outgrown all his winter jackets from last year. I was pleasantly surprised to see the sweater fit him quiet well and he loved wearing it. Pictures of him and his hand knit sweater coming soon.
