Puppies ready for adoption and other fo's.





Above are the starts to projects finished. They went very fast. Started Oct 9 finished today.

Calorimetry A head scarf for those that have long hair and do not like hats. Never had made one but going through my stash found the yarn and thought why not. When I make it again I will cast on 8 fewer stitches as it is a bit big. Took another 100 yards of yarn out of my stash. One would think after all this there would be a dent. But, no not yet. This will be a present for my daughter.
Husband's socks. Every once in a while if I make my husband a pair of socks, my stash does not get questioned. House socks or boot socks. These took 200 yards. Briggs and Little Tuffy yarn. I have heard this yarn wears like steel. Yarn is kinda hard on the hands. But, a quick knit after frogging them twice to get a gauge then size I wanted.
Big Sister to the puppies below. I was asked to make these for a young gal. Her feet grew really fast at a very young age and she missed the cute slippers. These are a size 13 womens. Dang big. I so hope she likes them.
More Puppies ready for adoption. I had a lot of fun making these. Faces are needle felted. One pair is going to the same family as the big sister above. The other pair to a good friend. I took about 4 patterns and blended them into one. The Big sister took a lot of math. All together this puppy family took 850 yards. Being that I did not know how they would turn out I am happy with them. I hope their new adopted family love them. They are all planned on being gifts. Hope they are box trained and stay quiet until ready. Tried to teach them manners.

Oh darn now I need to start a new project. Going stash diving.

Thanks all of you.

I am working on kitties right now. But, did order the yarn to try and make frogs. Not sure how I will do it but I will think about it.

Are you going to share your pattern for the puppies and kitties?

I would love to make these for my girls!!

I must say at this time nothing is written down. I am still in the "playing" stage. I have no clue if the critters look good or fit until after felting them.

These are adorable. I'd love to make some with the adaptation of pointy corgi ears. What a great gift for all dog lovers.
