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.
