An Irresistible Puppy in a Funky, Home knit Sweater!

This is Stella's Mom writing today.  I love to surf the net, and sometimes I find very good things and other times just so-so.

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

Hi Stella's Mom
That is indeed a very fine sweater and a cute (if rather small) dog. I am going to tell Gail to go over to that site and see if there are any knitting patterns for Westie-sized sweaters, as now I am getting on in years I do feel the cold, even inside the house sometimes (how is it that people who are concerned about global warming always have freezing cold houses...?)
Cheers, H.
PS Thanks for the advice on my hearing problems. With you as inspiration, I shall have no problem coping.

She is adorable! Tagpi is in need of a new sweater. My mom misplaced the one he wears at night, because he gets too cold with the AC on. He's starting to shiver when outside too and it never gets below 40 degrees on my island, so we're worried that he'll be really cold when we move to Maryland at the end of December. Too bad my mom is a terrible knitter, otherwise she'd be busy working on a new one for him.

Olive certainly does look so cute in her sweater..
Nope only one great stick at the lake until we decide mom threw it to far and we make her find another one...
