Finally!  Finished Gemini, and it fits, AND she likes it!  Win, Win, Win!  it even looks good with the jacket..

I'm so pleased!

In other news, started Christmas sweater, and it's flying along - found the needles I need for the sleeves today, and I'm hopeful that I'll have it finished by the end of the long weekend.  We'll see!

Dog Days of Summer

I've been knitting - honestly, I have.  I've gotten to the point of Gemini where I have to change needles, and have been waiting for my mom to finish with my needles.  I've started on a cowl for Christmas, which is turning out really beautifully.  I did my August washcloth, which I LOVED, and no one else appreciated enough, possibly because I kept showing it to them, saying "FEEL THIS!  SO SQUISHY!" and apparently, that gets old after awhile.
It's The Circle Cloth - and this isn't a great picture, but it's a great cloth.  Did I mention it's squishy?

And then Bea chewed through her leash.  So I made this - 
- and became obsessed.  So quick!  So colorful!  So fun!  And useful!  I think I've made all the alterations I need to - and I'm loving them!  There will be more of these in my future, I think, along, possibly, with matching collars.  Perfect for the Dog Days of Summer.

But tonight, it's back to Gemini.  The end is so close, I can taste it!
