Carson and the Cows

The past couple of weeks have been a bit unusual, especially for Carson. He wants to get in there with the cows so badly! He spends hours just sitting at the end of the dog run...watching the cows on the other side of the fence. He has never been a patient sort so the pictures are a bit unusual...he's sitting there, hardly moving...the anticipation and need to be with them is almost palpable. The cows? They totally ignore him...

I've been knitting some the past couple of weeks....Sock Wars IV started last week. I've mailed off my weapons of death to my target...and she should have them by Tuesday. I'll post a picture once she's 'dead' - in case she's lurking I don't want her to see them yet...

I've also been doing some test knitting for a girl in Canada. She altered a crochet pattern for this little bag shaped like an acorn so folks could knit it. As some of you know, I adore acorns - don't have a clue why they intrigue me, they just do. What was it that I told my friend, Sonya one day - oh yeah, "acorns are my signature nut!" Anyway, this little bag is just big enough to put a small knitting project in - like socks. It is fast, fun, really easy to make, and way-too-cute.

I used the buttons from John's old Navy peacoat. It was kinda spooky when I had it turned about 1/4 of the way to the right, it looked like a cricket head staring me in the face! I've never been a test-knitter before and it was kinda fun!
Expecting more storms this week - today we are experiencing rain and thunderstorms (I LOVE thunderstorms!)
I worked on 4 quilts the bindings sewn on and will get some pictures up as soon as it stops raining and I can get them outside for pictures.
Thanks for stopping by.

That is the cutest pic of Carson. When I first saw the picture of the acorn I thought is WAS some kind of an alien. What a talent you have :)

I love the pattern! As soon as I zoomed in on the picture I knew those buttons were from your DH coat. Love, love, love 100 times!!!!!! I will have to get this pattern when it comes out. Beautiful.
Poor puppy. He wants to play. Probably not a good idea though.

Carson and the cows is so, so sweet. Having a golden ourselves, I know how they just tug at your heart! But to have the cows ignore him -- that is so funny & cute!

Love, love your acorn bag. Super cute, Sal!
