So the Arctic is a no-go. And I’m okay with that.
We’re looking into getting a second dachshund – going to the same place from where we got Jackson today to look at his half-brother (a long hair) and his father (!) (a smooth black / tan). The long hair is ours! Coming home on Friday! He is just under a year old, and his name is Chi (rhymes with high or sky)!!
Dan’s cousin is getting married this summer. Yesterday while going in to order a bridesmaid dress, Betsy & I found the perfect dress! It’s a Marilyn Monroe style dress (like this one, but it doesn’t tie at the neck and a little more gathered across the middle – it’s black with green stems / two shades of blue flowers all over it.
Poor cell phone photos – the dress is by Luly K (which I can’t find any website for)
I want to make a shawl / wrap as the back and shoulders are bare / open and I know we’ll be in church and a long car ride so I want something to cover me if I get a chill. However, the wedding is in August, Long Island. Any ideas? These are some I already like:
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
and with further poking about, I find that I’m really into Kiri (pdf file link) or MagKnits Trellis Wrap or this Candis wrap thing
