So much to update you on...
This is Chico, the tiny little chihuahua who belongs to my macho step-dad. The human is so macho that he doesn't like to clothe the tiny little shivering dog. This drives me NUTSO!! (The dog is cute, is willing to be dressed, and seems cold a lot. His little ears are cold. With such a cuteness opportunity, it seems so wrong to pass it up!!)
So, out of one of the gorgeous sweaters, this one happens to be cashmere, with an understated cable pattern, I made a little doggie sweater out of one sleeve. Chico seems to like it. I did round the corners off a little more after this photo was taken.
I was tempted to turn the rest of the sweater into a little Chico dog bed, but no. It would be too much for the step-dad.
I left the doggie sweater there. Who knows if it's been worn since I left.
Thanks, Mom, for letting me use your washer, and your sewing machine, and your kitchen table, and your deck to spread out all this stuff.
Oh, and I claim to be the FIRST customer to arrive for the Blue Moon Fiber Arts Stash Sale. I was there at 8:30 am, but was not first in line. I waited in my car for a bit. I met three nice ladies from Seattle. I chatted with the delightful Nan, who was very relieved that I did not have brain cancer (long story). I purchased yarn. I purchased books. I want this to be an annual event, please.
