My aunt has greyhound dogs. I found a free pattern online (on Ravelry) for a cute hat/hood for greyhounds and decided to give it a try. I am happy with how it turned out!
My Ruthie-girl is part terrier, part sheltie so her neck is bigger than her head (she can't even wear a collar..it just slides off her head if we try). She was less-than-thrilled to be my model but I made her do it anyway! ;)
My only regret is that I used gray yarn instead of something more vibrant and exciting. My aunt is an eclectic, colorful woman and I think she would have much-preferred something brighter...but I didn't think that through well until after I was already a good way through knitting it. I am not sure that I will knit another as it, although not difficult really, was a bit tricky in some parts and I have other things to get done in time for Christmas.
My aunt lives a few hours away from me and she *should* be receiving the package today (it was a surprise)! I hope she likes it and that it works for her pups! :)
I also knit, as a gift for my nephew's upcoming birthday, my first-ever deer hat! I found the pattern in this fun new book I got.
A couple of the books I have been using for fun patterns...
A friend of mine, after having three daughters, is due to have her first son soon! I whipped up this fun hat for her soon little arrival!
I am in the middle of knitting up a baby hat which I, at first, intended to make for my sister's baby due at the end of November...but then I realized the colors are more girly...and I think she is having a boy (although my guesses are usually wrong) so we'll just see. Maybe I'll make a newborn baby boy hat so I have one or the other for the big day! :)
So those are a few of the projects I have been working on. With Autumn settling in, are you finding yourself keeping busy with creating/crafting/making? What projects are you working on? I would love to hear about them! :) Keep crafting on, friends!
