Yarn Along.... Another Finish and Beginning








There is no way to pin out everyone of those picot stitiches.  My neice wanted ruffles and ruffles she got!  This is Purl Dreams and it is exactly what it proclaims... a dream for those of us who do not like to purl.  Knit in the round, but to make a square it is a easy knit.  But, I suggest, not to use a worstd weight 100% cotton lest your needles give in to the strain.  :))

My oldest grandson has had "little doggie" since he was about 18 mos.  He had, at that point, chewed the noses off of 2 or 3 lovies.  Little Doggie has been everywhere with him, but is obviously showing signs of age.  I have made numerous patches at Patrick's request and choice of colors.  Now, his brother is on the needles.  Hopefully to be complete in a few days.  Patrick, 4 1/2, says, " Grandmother, when you are finished just set him on the kitchen counter so I will see him when I wake up."  Precious!

My Tuesday library run.  I'm not sure I even know where to begin.

Hop over to Drawstrings to see new fabrics up for bags!

Linking up with Ginny today!

    1. The original Little Doggie was not my creation, but not finding it hard to make another. Yes, they call me Grandmother. Just never wanted to be Grandma. ( some not so happy memories)

    1. I most likely will only read one or two. I grab several that look interesting, but usually only choose one!
