I have two quick bits of news for you. First, I’ve finally gotten around to formatting my ladies’ Wintergarden Pullover as a PDF and it’s now available through Ravelry.
Secondly, it turns out Gracie is a knitter! (I guess that explains her smile.)
A while ago, we were out on some errands and got home later than expected. In the meantime, poor Gracie was left home alone to entertain herself. And that she did! She found my knitting basket in the family room, selected some favorites and apparently proceeded to make six separate, determined trips back and forth from the family room to the front door to gather her supplies and begin her new project. When we returned, Gracie danced with immense pride, right next to one impressive mound of snarled, scrambled, slobbered Noro, along with six shredded – but matching!! – ball bands. I didn’t know if I should laugh or cry. I wish I had grabbed my camera, but I was too shocked by thoughts of the $$$ her new WIP represented. My husband and boys mercifully cleared the remains.
Now that my knitting basket is safely tucked way beyond her reach and we’ve invested in some heavy duty chew toys, I’ve decided to be favorably impressed. And I’ll share with you this sweet photo taken today:
A golden dog with an eye for color!
