Great Loves, Present and Past


This is Coltrane, our newest family member. We rescued him from the local pound--he'd been there for 30 days and we adopted him on day 31. He's about 7 months old, and full of beans and love. I've never met such a dog who *loves* to cuddle more than anything. I suppose 30 days in jail will do that to a fella.

And forever in our memory and our hearts is our Mingus, who past 23 December 2006. We love you Mingus!

Happy Belated Valentine's Day, everyone. And thanks to you all for your sweet, kind comments on Rusted Root. I've missed you, one and all, and I'm so grateful that you're still reading :)

Rusted Root via The Great Parikha


Anyone still here? :)

Guess what I wore to work today?

Let's try another jacket...

Now, it's back to the wild for me...

Pattern: Rusted Root by Zephyr Girls
Yarn: Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in Alpine Lilac (2.3 skeins)
Modifications: I am a sheep. I followed Parikha (Ravelry link). She graciously said to me, "Heck, go on and copy me." Okay, not quite those words, but it captures the spirit of our email exchange last year :)

Thanks Parikha for the inspiration. Thanks Zephyr girls for a great pattern. Thanks to anyone who might still be reading ;)
