3 In A Bed................

There were 3 in the bed and the little one said, "Roll over".

As you can see the dogs that sleep together stay together. All that is except............

Scotia, wants no part of "sleeping on the floor", even if it is on a dog bed. Her spot is permanently fixed on the back of the couch.

New yarn to show, the one on the right is sKNITches "plum pudding" and the one on the left is Hand Maiden Mini Maiden in colour B, which I actually think is missed lettered, as it looks more like Moss to me than the colour it was supposed to be.

I also purchased two dpn cases, my dpn collection was getting slightly out of control, and I thought it was time I put it in some kind of order.

The cases are by Red Corset Designs, Connie, cleverly mixed and matched for me, one having a plain cover and printed inside, the other a printed cover and plain inside. I love the colours, dark green plain and green and brown printed. I now have my dpns installed in their new home.

The next installment in the Tsarina Sock Club arrived. The pattern is Cookie's Garden, I am constantly amazed at the sheer genious of her designs. The yarn is ValCalcar, a pea green, deep red, and hand painted spring colourway.

It also includes 4 small red beads and 2 ladybird beads.
I would love this to be my next project, however with Sockapalooza 4 and Rowan Exchange 2007 take priority. I have already decided on yarn and pattern for Sockapalooza and also for the Exchange. I have taken pictures of both and will be showing them in the next few days. The Exchange is first as it will be mailed by the 11th of July, Sockapalooza is not until the 2nd of August.

If you don't mind me asking, how much do the Tsock Tsarina kits cost for the club? I haven't been able to find out any information online. Are the patterns as complicated as they look?? I'm intrigued!

Meghan - the patterns are challenging, but the directions are written very well. I think it cost around the same as STR - $200.00 - this is the second installment, the first was Cleopatara.

Scotia and Barkley are definitely meant for each other. He sleeps on our bed and should a cat or the other dog even look in his direction, he's up growling and stomping around making sure no one even considers putting a paw in his direction.
