a little bit of red

Red is color that is bold and sexy and a sign of good luck. Occasionally, I wear red to try to liven up my mostly black wardrobe. Last week, I found this in a basket of UFO's. It was started it a while back when I wanted to knit something out of Scarf Style. Then I realized, that even though I like red, and it goes well with black, I'll probably never wear a ruffled scarf. It's just, well, I'm not a very ruffly kind of person. But I know someone/something that is...

Pattern: Ruffles fron Scarf Style
Yarn: Knit Picks Merino Style in Holly Berry - 1 skein
Needles: US 7
Pattern Notes: After knitting 1 skein of yarn in the pattern, I realized it would be something I would never wear. Ends are sewn together to make a lovely ruffly dog collar.

And as we're still in the midst of a Project Spectrum, here's some more red...

and even though this isn't red, it's fruit will be...

rainy roses

It rained this past weekend, and I'm not sure why, but I ventured out in the rain with plastic bag over my camera and took some pictures in the rose garden. I have some of my knitting to show you, but my model, Mandy, is being a bit uncooperative. Apparently I have thing for basset hounds with bad knees/patellas. Mandy has been diagnosed with a luxating patella, it pops in and out, repeatedly and quite easily. She's a trooper though, she still wants to play and run around. We have an appointment with the ortho/surgeon vet next week. All this and she's not even two.

in the pink...

In keeping with Project Spectrum, I've got more pink knittting. A pink sweater, for me. Luckily for me, I had this yarn in the stash. I had plans to finish it over the long weekend, but all that free time and beautiful, warm, sunny days kept me away from my needles and a bit distracted.

Mandy's adjusting to life with out Em-Em and has even assumed the role of modeling the knitting...she doesn't seem to mind, much. Afterall she loves pink...
