whomp, whomp, whomp …

Wow, I really haven’t been active on here at all. Well that should and needs to change ASAP. I have a few new projects done, and finally got a new camera, so pictures should be coming soon.

Life got in the way of my knitting endeavors!

Come on in, make yourself comfortable

I am just so happy I had a few visitors and followers. This is really amazing. I also really would like to encourage everyone to leave comments. Any feedback or suggestions are welcome; or even if you just want to say hello. Please do so! This blog is meant to help me improve my knittings but is also a way for me to be part of a wonderful arts and crafts community. I am truly looking forward to meeting like-minded people and to learn from much advanced knitters and crocheters (and any other arts and crafty skill for that matter).

Can’t wait to hear from you!

Sun is shining ….

It’s beautiful outside and I cannot wait to lounge by the pool and getting some needle work done. Anyone doing the same? I have big plans for Memorial Day. I’m gonna try this new pattern I found. Maybe C will get a new cute outfit out of this endeavor! Or maybe even one of the big dogs. G, L, you guys hear that?

Wishing everyone a wonderful Memorial weekend.

May the yarn be always with you!

Why knitting makes me happy!

Just thought I should talk a little about why knitting makes me happy, which by the way is not something that I would have said when I was in my teens and my mom thought I should learn how to knit. I remember her saying ‘you are now of age to learn how to knit’ …. what does that even mean? of age? …. Anyhow, she thought I should knit pot holders, and I think I made it 2/3 through and gave up because it seemed the most boring activity a teenager can imagine. Thinking about this now, I wish I would have stuck with it (yes mom, you were right). Imagine all the outfits I could have already made.

But to get back to why I now love knitting. Right now, I cannot imagine anything more relaxing, then to sit next to my husband watching a movie and knitting a scarf for a friend or crocheting a blanket. It’s amazing to create something so useful right in front of my eyes, and I am the one making it. I have creative freedom ( no mom telling me knit 1, purl 1, knit 1, purl 1) and I am trying new patterns and shapes and I am successfully completing them. I finally even learned how to read patterns developed by others (yes, that was self-taught ***proud***).  Crocheting I learned from a dear friend, and I find that it allows me to make up things as I go even more than knitting (and it is faster –  big plus!).  Given that I am such a science nerd, I truly appreciate doing something else aside from reading research papers. I sit in front of a computer a good amount during the day, and knitting/crocheting is just the right stress relief … working with my hands … and being creative … producing usable things … .

Making cute little outfits for dogs just makes me plain and simple happy. Is that weird? Maybe, but I don’t care! :)

What do y’all love about knitting?

Hi there!

Welcome to my humble little website about dog clothing. All designs are unique, handmade with love, and either knitted or crocheted or a combination of the two. My inspiration are my three dogs:

and C.
