Making progress and Meet Shorty...

I am really enjoying knitting this little sweater. It is coming along nicely. This is knit from the top down, all in one piece. Tonight I will be able to take it to Noble Knitters group because I am just knitting and purling the body and that doesn't require my brain to think too much whilst talking!

I figured it was time to introduce the latest member of our family. Meet Shorty. Shorty is a brother to Junior and is currently 11 weeks old. I do believe he will be a little smaller than Junior - Junior weighs in at a large Silky Terrier size of 12.5lbs but is not overweight at all according to our vet.

Big Girl aka Lucy, our 14 year old lab is just barely tolerant of him. She has earned her right to be a little cranky and she is the queen of the pack. Everyday I see a little more age creeping into her but she is still pretty spunky!
Stop by The Yarn Grove where you will find a contest going on for Earth Day.

I have made several of those little seamless yoke baby sweaters. I love that pattern for a quick baby shower gift. For a boy I just do the top part (the yoke) in garter stitch or plain stockinette stitch.

Shorty is a cutie.
