Hunting Dog

My father in law is a bow hunter.  They own a bit of property in the Texas HIll Country which is a prime deer hunting location, so he has a deer blind in his back yard.  Once he shoots a deer, he goes and gets his hunting dog to help track the deer.  The only catch is that his hunting dog is a girly miniature poodle!  So, for Christmas, Gabby the poodle is getting a hunting dog coat (pattern and picture here).  I just started it Monday night, and should finish it tonight.  It is knit in Camo yarn and will have a green pocket on the back that I hope to embroider with a pink G.  Hopefully, it will get a lot of laughs!

When I went to get the yarn for the hunting dog coat, I couldn’t resist this gadget!  It’s the first one on that page, the Knitting Bee!  Now I’ll pull out my little bee when it comes time to make a knitted cord for purse straps or anything else.  And, it came with a pom pom maker!  It cracks me up that I would pass by the same gadget in the past, but paint it yellow and black with cute little eyes and I’m all over it.
