Last time we met, I was hunkering down for the Ravelympics. Three solid weeks of knitting almost round-the-clock, followed by an end-of-summer family trip to St. Simons Island, then some serious computer difficulties, have kept me off my blog. But I’m baaa-a-ack …
First, I won the GOLD MEDAL in the Blue Sky Alpacas Group‘s knit-a-thon ~ yes!! I’ll be posted some of my FO’s in weeks to come. My prize is on its way from Minnesota, and I’ll share it when it gets here.
My favorite project was an original design that I just this afternoon finished writing the pattern for. With the computer down, I couldn’t do a thing with the pictures or pattern, but it’s up now, and it’s a benefit for the BARACK OBAMA FOR PRESIDENT CAMPAIGN. The pattern is for sale at my Etsy store (see the link to your right), and 100 percent of the proceeds go to the campaign. So, do your part and buy one ~ for yourself, a friend or anyone who knits and knows who needs to be the next occupant of the White House.
BARK OBAMA Dog Sweater
Let your pawlitical animal show his colors now and beyond Election Day with this clever, patriotic sweater. Features fuzzy dogs, bones and shiny stars, and is all tied up with a pretty ribbon. It’s sized to fit pups with 12-14, 15-17 or 18-20″ chest, and the length can be adjusted. Knit in DK-weight yarn. Intermediate to advanced knitting skills, along with a knowledge of intarsia, required.
No bones about it ~ your dog will love you, and so will Barack!
