The pattern is here and I'm using Baby Bee Sweet Delight in baby camo. This is for a baby weighing 3-4 lbs. It would have fit my last baby Michael. Going to see how many little hats I can make for lent as well as working on and off on another baby blanket. This Saturday marks the 10th year of blogging. Going to celebrate with a cake and knitting and praying:~)
Shadow is usually found at Norm's left arm or at his feet while he works. Penny will lay on the floor or up on the back of the loveseat. They are opposites as Penny is more laid back and Shadow is more sporty. She will even play fetch with an aluminum ball and thinks nothing of running over Norm to fetch. Both are well loved and as you can see are growing bigger. Shadow is more vocal and Penny is more quiet. We are looking forward for spring to introduce them more to the outdoors fun. Hope you are staying warm and having the best Lent ever!!
