Stitching Status: Thankful for Cuteness

I’ve been slowly plugging away on a sweater for my Mom for Christmas over the last few weeks and I told my sisters I would probably finish their sweaters after Christmas. I’m not in a rush to force myself to get it all done. Fro my mom’s sweater I’m knitting the separate pieces for the front and back 2 at a time on one long needle but it’s a smaller needle and it gets a little tedious so I stop or switch projects so my hands don’t get fatigued. The one awesome thing about this project is that I’m using 2 huge skeins of Miss Babs Yowza for each piece so I shouldn’t have any loose ends to weave in when I’m finished! I also haven’t taken a single picture of it and probably won’t until it’s finished. What I do have are pictures of cute dogs and even cuter babies to share.

Over the long holiday weekend last week we took photos for our holiday cards and I left the ladies in their sweaters all day since we were heading to my Mom’s house for Thanksgiving dinner. I made them their own mashed sweet potatoes to add to their dinner and they gobbled them up.
You know it’s really good when you have to put your foot in the bowl to get every last drop.

Of course when we took photos in every one they looked in the exact opposite direction of where we wanted them to look but they were still cute anyway. Jellybean is wearing an adorable hand knit bumble bee sweater I got with a gift card and it so nicely done. I have yet to dip my toe into colorwork but this made me want to so badly. And of course Cher is wearing the sweater I knit her last week for photos. And remember that matching dog and baby sweater set I made a few months ago? I got a picture of the recipients of the sweaters to share over the weekend.

The cutest combo of dog and baby ever. I absolutely love this photo. They both look so serious about their modeling. And if that isn’t enough cuteness for you…
I give you my dogs wearing hats. No I didn’t knit this one, I picked it up at Petco. And Jelly left it on without complaint. I was surprised.
And Cher has on a fuzzy trapper hat. I love it! And that’s your dose of cuteness for the day. You’re welcome.
