I have finished the crocheted item that I mentioned to you a few weeks ago. My hubby asked me to make it for him. He is the Scout Master here, and they are having their Freezerie this weekend. Camping in the cold, for those of you wondering what that is.
There will be animal skinning, arrow shooting, star gazing, No Bathing and dubious cooking. Sound fun? Their theme, is Middle Earth. If we ever have a long trek across uncharted territory, I know I can count on my scouts to get us fed and sheltered. Hmm... Maybe.
So in a dark and dimly lit pub, sitting in a corner sipping his stout... O.k. our dining room, sorta dimly lit, with an empty tankard...sat Mike. He was just about to leave, but only too happy to try on the beard again. I think he is liking it. But I have said "no!" to any idea of his about walking around with that on all the time. I think he would.
I just remembered. When I nearly finished the beard, he tried it on, and was excited, so he put on the rest of his costume and I had taken a picture! Wanna see it? Sure you do!
Earlier in the week I made Mikayla another hat. She is off to London, with her Art class for a few days, and just needed a new hat for the occasion. Jo from Through the Keyhole passed on the pattern. Thanks Jo! Its such an easy knit, on straight needles, using the blackberry stitch.
I used king cole's superwash merino aran wool, the color is damson. I had it in my stash, so its great that it has been used. It comes in 50g balls. Gabi wants one of these hats too, in of course pink. See anyone in the backround??? Lying in the dirt...
He's there, soaking up what ever will attach itself to him before he comes inside. I am happy, in 2 weeks, hes going for a bath and a shave!! Right now he is like a walking rug.
Heres a close look at the culprit of muddy paw prints, slobber, hair, and barking. He's liking that rugged, rough look.
He is also getting some more white in his coat. Notice his little white mustache? Made us all laugh.
Well in case your wondering its taken me 2 days to write this post, because of sitting issues, I am using a different chair, as the computer one seems to make the nerve hurt more. It comes and goes. Very thankfully it has eased off a bit today! Yeah! Hope you have a great weekend!
