Barking mad

Ok something I cannot beleive. Wandering in The Warehouse today and looking in the toy section this grabbed my eye. Ok so the new idea for dress ups is to do a male stripper. I hope no kids think it is ok to wear that for Halloween. I must admit I went back to that isle that many times making sure there was no child when I took the photo.

Here is the little doggy from Simply Knitting and so far I am calling him Brindle for now but will add his collar and maybe the coat later. He is a quick and small knit but tedious and a real job to get together I dont endevour making ore than this one and I cant say if the other accesories are going to join him.

Top secret Item is complete and will soon be heading for a secret assignment but I cant reveal it at all and am now back on track to the alpaca work and will soon knit another top secret pattern but I might reveal certain sections of this one. I can say it will be my new Tea cosy.

For now it is back to the alpaca scarf from the Better Homes and Garden Mother of Purl feature in April/May this year. I have the luxury of using 4ply Alpaca/silk blend on a 80/20 ratio. More of that to come as well my mojo is in full swing hopefully some yarns for the stock can start being sent to Crookwell as items. Yes despite the stinking heat I still have far too much to work on. Somehow I have to get stocked again for there before the next winter.

Ok back top the reading and knitting much work to be done.

    I loved that little dog from Simply Knitting! ALthough id he is difficult to put together, maybe not for me int he immediate future any way.

    I e-mailed, but I don't know what happend. If it's lost in cyber space or if your reply got accidently delated while I was tryign to clear my account of Viagra, Viakra and British Lottery and other just weird looking subjects.

    I've re-emailed if you don't mind dispensing any last minute advice!

    Not sure now if I want to re-try making that dog. After I finnish my bag I might knit up a few quick bags with some of the yarn I got. Might even donate some to charity.

    The little dog in Simply Knitting is so cute! LOVE the look of yours! I have found that a few toys are hard to put together.

    I think the stripper thing is a "tad" shocking!! :|
