S is for
Digging back to photos of projects I made from a couple of years ago. This is a 10-ft Dr Who-inspired scarf I made for a friend's husband. Never again!! I thought I was going to go crazy working only in single crochet.

Okay, it was supposed to be a shawl, not a shawlette; my gauge was way off on this. But I still love it; it's so pretty and soft. You can find the pattern here. I keep thinking I'd like to make another one but with a bigger hook so it comes out the correct size.

S is also for
These are our two mutts. Sugar is the brown Walker Hound/Cur and Smores is the black and white Blue Heeler/Cur. They're both in the "big dog" category. They could knock you down if they tried, and they're fiercely protective of their yard, house and family. But they're also very sweet and loveable (though not very bright).

Thanks for reading and looking.
Blessings :-)

  2. Awesome post Kate. Nice progress on Santa. That scarf is gorgeous. Love the pic of your dogs.


  3. Awww your babies are adorable. I love big dogs. Great stitching as well :)

  4. So many good things for the letter S. Santas are always great fun to stitch, particularly the Prairie Schooler Santas.

  5. Your furbabies are so cute! Life wouldn't be life without our furbabies:)

  6. Hi Kate! Looks like you are making great progress on your cross stitch. Love the Dr. Who Scarf. I've never watched the show, but the scarf is really cool. Your pooches look like they enjoy each other's company. Have a great day, Heather

  7. The Dr. Who scarf and the shawlette are very nice. Your doggies look so cute. :)

  8. Lots of lovely Ss Kate, I love the shawl and you have more patience than me making a huge long scarf in sc, it's lovely though. :) xx

  9. Yes what nice Ss! I love your dogs Kate and they look so comfy laying in the grass. My dog Bosco loves laying outside in the sun. Thanks for stopping by. Hope you enjoy today and the rest of the week!

  10. Great projects! I knit one of those Dr. Who scarves, I think it took me 2 months or more? So much garter stitch...

  11. Love the shawl! I don't knit although my dd does. I don't need another hobby!

  12. You completely amaze me that you are working on so many projects. Do you have a special place where you "drop" them when you need to do something besides stitch? Just curious :) Linda@Wetcreek Blog
