The puppeh has landed

Look who's come home!

Yes, it's young Petal! She has a rubber ducky, which squeaks. She even likes playing with tiny balls (something Lily was never into).

She loves the smell of wool (good dog!), and loves to sneak into my jumper for a puppy nap curled up under my chin.

Her first night (last night) went smoothly, better than we were expecting. No night-long howl-fest, she settled down and slept well (as far as we know!). Dotter made her this little red sleeping pocket from polar fleece - chihuahuas have a fine tradition of burrowing!

So, so far so good! She's currently lying on the beanbag with Hubby, curled up under his chin :)

On the knitting front, I have a lot of projects on the go, all started for Knitting Camp. This is the Ribbed Jacket by Shepherd, knit in Cascade 220. I've finished the back and both fronts, and am now knitting the sleeves (both at the same time). The yarn is just gorgeous, extremely smooshy.

I got the pattern booklet at the Knitting Camp, I suspect it's a discontinued one, as it was on sale, and I can't find it on Ravelry (well, I've added the pattern, but I'm the only one to have knitted it, online, anyway). Lots of 2 x 1 ribbing!

  1. yay for puppy love! She looks very snuggly.

    You must tell me how you worked out how to add a pattern to Rav. I have tried and failed several times.

  4. What a doll! What a beauty! What a treasure! That polar fleece sleeping bag is just what a puppy needs, though I'm a bit surprised that Dotter didn't put the pup in bed with her.

    The snuggle-in-the-jumper nap is priceless!

  5. I gave a squeel when I saw her picture. How adorable. I'm so happy for you all to have a new family member. OK, call me bad but she would be sleeping with me at night.

  8. I was already going 'awwwww' at the first photo but when I got to that one snuggled in your jumper neckline I just melted into a gooey puddle.
    The cats are unimpressed but Bear thinks she's very cute
