Both my dogs love toys, but Zuzu also loves her toy box. (Yes, that is a child's suitcase. Yes it is completely full. No, those are definitely not all of her toys . . . She has several other toy boxes throughout the house.)
Today, we gave them both baths. Man do they become maniacs when they get wet. They have been running around like kids who ate too much candy since they got out of the towels.
That funky blob of knitting became this darling little newborn baby sweater! It's Elizabeth Zimmermann's Baby Surprise Jacket with extended sleeves because they are too short as the pattern is written.
This is my baby shower as it stands right now. The stuffed duck is a puppet and it quacks when you press the inside of it's mouth. The little duck is one of those dancing things that I figured could go near a light. The blue and white set is newborn size and has a sleeper, onesie, pants and bib. The orange and brown set has a long sleeved shirt and a short sleeved shirt and a pair of pants in size 12 months. Then there is the baby sweater with a matching hat and a pair of booties. I think the booties are too large for a newborn so I'm going to make another smaller pair too. I also have the yarn for a couple of baby blankets . . . someday.
Finished! Daphne Major socks in Miss Babs Cosmic yarn in the Galapagos color. These are only available on the Miss Babs Travel Tour right now but will be available to the public in six months. I LOVE this color!
These are called Daphne Major and were designed by Very Busy Monkey. The yarn is Miss Babs' Cosmic in the (very gorgeous) Galapagos color. I LOVE this color, so much that I grabbed another hank someone was destashing. These are just started. . . .
