The start of the knitting vacation


Today is the official get ready day for my knitting vacation. More about that tomorrow. First let me say it is necessary to find a wonderful place for my little dog Sammy. He has listened to Emmy and is so very much better about the knitting. Today he went to stay with my grandchildren. I am so fortunate it is less than 2 hours from where I live. Sammy loves it there, children and dogs to play with and the cat Pablo to harass. I took a picture of Lillie, Louis and Sammy just before we left. Lillie is wearing her birthday dress. I used one of the free patterns from Kramer yarns web page. I am still learning this blog stuff and not ready to give you those wonderful links but I am working on it. So in the meantime you will just have to do a regular old fashioned search. The Watermelon dress. I used cotton DK from my stash. I am trying to hard to reduce it. I think it came out really cute and she loves it. That little dog is my Sammy. I shall miss him when I am away.

I was so luck hubby drove and I was able to knit on the emergency sweater for Sunday's christening. I am almost finished and will post that picture tomorrow.

I need to finish that sweater.
