Knitting, Dogs and More: What's Going On?

What's Going On?

Progress!

I'm trying to encourage our Yahoo Group for the Family Circle Cable Knitted Pullover to take our group from a fan club of this sweater to actually knitting it. The original magazine issue it appeared in was August of 1977. I thought we could start as a sort of tribute to the title "Knit them now, wear them later". Unfortunately the heatwave that hit CA a week or so ago has made its way accross the U.S. My thoughts are with all of you affected by it! Meanwhile it cooled down here, I recived the yarn I ordered for this project and started! I like how the grey looks and think this will be a comfy sweater. If anyone else would like to join. click the button on the left or click here. There's only a few copies of the pattern I can give out left but there are other resources (EBay)

Keepin' an eye on things!

This hawk and a few others of his kind have been hanging out in our neighbors tree. She or he is pretty cool looking and I appreciate his presence as we've heard/seen a few unwanted rodents around (BLEAH!)


Dogs and More!


Here are the pups playing around. Notice the tomato plants in tubs. The second from the left didn't make the heat wave. I thought it might come back but I think it needs to go to the compost pile. The fruit is still dropping in the dog run faster than I can clean it up. The pups aren't as bad as they've been in the past years but they sure get their share of plums apples and peaches.

Thanks so much for sending the pattern for the KAL. I am going to start on it soon, I need to wind my yarn and do a swatch, and hopefully I will have some progress to share soon. You sweater looks great.

A resident hawk is a good thing (unless maybe you have a kitten or tiny dog!) Your dogs eat fruit?! I've never had a dog that ate fruit.
