Today was a very good thing. From Powell's Books in Portland, Oregon I get the Daily Dose. This is a book recommended by a reader as something very special and Powell's sends it out daily. This book is
Mason-Dixon Knitting: The Curious Knitter's Guide: Stories , Patterns, Advice, Opinions, Answers, Jokes and Pictures. by Kay Gardiner and Ann Shayne. You wouldn't even need to be a knitter to like a lot of this stuff, Stories, Advice, Opinions, Answers, Jokes. Anybody could like that. Then in the writing about this book was a url for a knitter's blog http://www.masondixonknitting.com/ Which I visited because I AM a knitter. The very first thing I saw was this photo of Kay Gardiner's dog Olive wearing a sweater that she had knitted for her. And I lost my mind, my brain was overcome with cuteness!
I have had lots of cute little dogs in my life, from puppies like Olive to older dogs, but I have never had one even half this cute with a funky sweater on. I just wanted you all to see her.
Thanks to Kay for allowing me to post Olive's picture. Yes, I still love Stella and will forever.
Cheers and hugs all around,
Jo, Stella's Mom
