We were tagged by our friend Chef to put up something creative that is done in our house. (We will have Peanut put up the link to Chef's blog since we do not know how to do it.) Grammie (who is my mom and Peanut's Grammie) loves to knit. She isn't very good at it, but she likes it all the same. She has a favorite yarn shop called Knit Divas. (They even have a online store.) They have lots of very colorful yarn in all sorts of types. Grammie had been knitting off and on for years. She made hats and slippers mostly. One day she decides that she is going to take a class on Knitting 2 Socks on 2 Circular Needles. We are all saying to each other, RIGHT. She goes to the class and finds out that she has been doing something called a purl stitch wrong for like a zillion years. Jeannie the owner of Knit Divas got her straightened out and off she goes making socks. She has a pair that she is working on right now. They are pretty hard to see so I will put up a picture of some she has finished. She is working on a project now that she feels might be the death of her. It is called a cable stitch. She has ripped it out more times than I can count and she uses HBO words when she works on it. It is a scarf and she is not sure if she will ever get it done. She has made hats and scarfs for Christmas gifts and even made Peanut's dad some beanies and helmet liners that he can wear in Iraq. (We love you Peanut's dad).
You should see all the yarn that she has sitting around. That is only a few of the skeins that she actually has hidden. Like she is going to finish all these projects by the time she goes to the Rainbow Bridge! That is our creative post and we hope all you pups, kitties and hammies have the greatest day.
