Pink Puppy

This is a Mitered Baby Jacket by Phazelia (Rav link only). For a friend ... a great way to use up bits and pieces of sock yarn!

Progress on the Pink Clapotis. This is for a friend who I've known since high school - since 1977. Her sister, brother-in-law, and their 3 children perished in the Victorian bushfires last month. I know this won't bring her family back, but hopefully it will provide a little comfort...

And finally a gratuitous puppy piccie (get used to it, there will be more!). This is the little black and white spotted chihuahua - 1 week old. Her eyes should be open in the next week or so.


  1. adorable pup--so sweet. i wish my kids/we could have had the experience of a litter of kittens, as this is just one of my favorite childhood memories. your clapotis is just lovely and makes me want to knit one next. as a comfort gift, it will surely be appreciated.

  2. oh the clappy is growing beautifully! Guess you figured out what was causing you problems then! Such a terrible, awful story. We do what we can for people.

    Love the baby cardi. I might have to try that one with my hoardes of sock yarn.

    AGain, cute puppy!

  3. Aaaww - how cute is that puppy!

    so sweet - don not, under any circumstances - show my kids!

  4. Oh please share many many puppeh pics!!

    The clappy is a lovely thoughtful gift - a big hug for your friend.

  5. Such sweetness - from the sweet knitted gifts to the spotted puppy. And yes, terrible loss that your dear friend suffered, but what a lovely gift from a friend who remembers ...

    Keep sharing the sweetness!


  6. Oh, look at the cute little paws!

  7. Awwww, look at the baby!

    So sorry to hear about your friend's loss. Knowing that x number of people died is terrible. Bringing it to the particulars - a person's brother, sis-in-law, and children - makes it tragic. The clapotis is lovely and will be a wearable hug. Good for you!

    Pretty, clever baby jacket!

    Hugs to dotter!

  8. Oh, does the widdle puppy have a name yet? Soooo cute!

    I'm so sorry about your friend. What horror. I know your knitted hug will mean a lot to her.

  9. The jacket is going to look so cute. One day I get the pattern but have 4 more in front of it. Are you going the name the puppy when she come home or have you all been throwing out names. The Clapotis is a comfort knit and by just dropping the one stich changes it.
