Things have been busy lately here in the Doodle house. First I have to show you these fantastic socks I've been testknitting for Susi. She is such a fabulous sock designer. I can't say enough about them. They're challenging, graphically intriguing and super warm and well-fitting. My Rav project page is here. I used a mix of stash yarn to get the colours I liked. Many fingering weight mostly-solid yarns would do. She's also done a fingerless mitts version, which I love.
Thanks Susi for this wonderful pattern!! I know I'll be making these again.
The other news is we have a new friend in our house. She's a 6 month old Lab cross from one of the wonderful shelters here. She's been in foster care for the last while with a fantastic guy and his 2 wee dogs, so he did lots of great work socializing her and helping her with her shyness. This is her first day with us, and she's already adjusting really well. We hope very much that she likes it here. As several of you know I've been searching for the right dog for us for quite awhile.
