Mixing it up!
Mixing it up as in mixed breed of doggy!
I present…a husky/collie cross!
As with all the previous huskies, I based the pattern on Siberian Husky by Sally Muir and Joanna Osborne from the book Best in Show: Knit your own Dog.
I have just the collie left to post and then it really will be time for something different!
In other news, life has been its usual relentless self – I ripped apart the kids rooms last weekend and only just now have the worst of the scrapes and bruises healed. We’ve had the usual ups and downs you have with small children and have begun to plot the fine details for Felix’s birthday in a few weeks.
I may have to do a few emergency knits for it…
I also spent some time with friends last night which involved a very long journey down memory lane – the youngest present (a baby of 16) just looked at us all as if we were absolutely mad! It’s crazy how fast technology has moved, and yet here I am with a spinning wheel and knitting needles!
