As always so much to share and not quite enough time. So….here comes bits and pieces throughout this week. Carole stopped mid-day this past Saturday…..and most of the knitting folks had left a few minutes earlier. So Terry and I were the first of the Skein Lane Saturday knitting group to see the photo taken just the day before of the 8 puppies recently born to Carole’s Portuguese Water Dog. Dulcie is a show dog….and Carole has been busy this last year or more learning about dogs, showing dogs, and now she knows how to whelp puppies. The puppies were born a couple days ahead of schedule and Carole was on her own with Dulcie and the first of couple of pups. Couldn’t help but laugh when Carole said she just hadn’t had time to knit. You think?!
Here’s Carole modeling one of Terry’s creations that she showed at last October’s Skein Lane Retreat. The Faroese shawl pattern comes from Meg Swansen and is featured on page 38-41 in Shawls and Scarves, The Best of Knitter’s Magazine, 1999. Terry knit this shawl with a lovely mohair blend yarn that she purchased from Art Fibers in Pinole.
Dulcie came over to play with my pup Lucy a few months ago….and oh where are those photos!/
