So far in 2008, I’ve been as crafty as I can be. I’m not going to do one of those 2007 year in a review posts, nor am I going to do a new year’s resolution one. I do have a couple of resolutions that I will say, though – one is to post here at least once a week even if I don’t have much to say (that’s when ABC photos or photos of cute pets will surface) and the other is to see friends as much as possible. The year got off to a good start that way, getting together last weekend with some of my favorite local people, a visiting friend, and a hopefully new friend.

Knitting projects I’ve posted about are still in progress, nothing new to report there. I’ve taken up some of my free time starting a new quilt, this one a gift. Another log cabin, because they are easy, pretty, and quick. The fun of this one was shopping in Cassie’s closet for the fabric. The top is nearly done – it will be lap sized due to my floor constraints – and I need to go get batting this week.

A new knitting project I haven’t photographed yet – a quickie sweater for my pup. Ty had a pretty extreme haircut last week when it was 16 degrees, and although he does have winter coats, his only sweater (not knitted by me, the horror) is too small. I felt my boy should have some handknits, so I’m working on a sweater for him out of the brown Highland Chunky that no one wanted in a recent swap. Of course it’s nearly 70 degrees (!) today. But that will change. And since I promised Claudia, a cute photo of Ty with his spiffy new do.

Hopefully next photo of him will have him wearing the sweater.

Wow, he is a skinny boy!

Quilt: beautiful!

Ty: what a cutie!

You posting more: yay!

You made such great choices on the quilt fabric at Cassie’s, it is fun to see it coming together ! As always, Ty looks darling.

That pupper looks super small without his fur! Still so darn cute, though.

Indeed, don’t be swayed away from Ty’s sweater but the summerlike warmth. Winter is cruel.

I like how your quilt is coming. Very pretty colors. Your puppy is totally adorable!

Something to say?
