In the morning we are headed off to Chicago to visit our daughter's family. We haven't seen David and Sophia since they were here in June, so we expect a lot of changes. The past few days I've been busy finishing a few projects for them. It was lots of fun to knit these two critters. It's two different patterns by Chris de Longpre, Safari Friends and Prehistoric Pals. Each pattern has 4 different animals.
Leo and Breaky
Speaking of critters, the bunnies and squirrels have been playing out back. Dick caught this confrontation yesterday.
Just this afternoon I sewed the last duck button on this little sweater for Sophia. It's made from yarn I got in New Jersey when we were visiting our nephew Jon and family. Just this evening in a comment on Ravelry, I learned that this yarn will be carried locally. The buttons and pattern were included with the yarn, and the ball had enough yarn to make the largest size (12 mos.) with a little left over, enough for preemie booties maybe.
And before we leave,, I need to thank Pat Winter for her beautiful thank you note plus goodies. I can't wait to get started on piecing some blocks using these silkies. Aren't the ribbons pretty?
