Last night the handler for the norwegain elkhound was my hero. This woman may or may not be the oldest handler in the Westminster show, but she was out there with her little back bent over, and she was hobbling at a clip to show her dog. Age was obvious, but so was her concentration. And let’s face it, she wasn’t showing a toy papillion, she was showing a big, strong, willful dog. Way to go lady handler!
This was our magnificent sunset last night. This is probably very funny to those of you who live in the South. Trust me no one is pulling up a lounge chair and watching the sunset with a drink while the temps hover in the 30s and 40s. At a glance, however, from the comfort of my knit spot while still using an electric throw, it was very beautiful.
I need to get more of the color I’m using for the summer top today. Hoping there is some of the same dye lot available. I really like this project. Here are some of the reasons of why:
*it promises me summer will come
*I only need one set of needles to knit this top
*I am enjoying the little pattern and the fact of its sameness for a full 22 inches on the back. No counting rows. Just happy knitting.
Have you noticed why you like certain types of patterns ?
My little knit passion may not be as impressive as a senior dog handler at Westminster or a sunset in the sky, but its making me happy today.
