Stitching Status: Decisions, Decisions

So I’m currently working on a pink dress for my goddaughter I started ages ago (April to be exact). I’ve got 10 inches of stockinette stitch for a good 200+ stitches and I’m forcing myself to push through it to get to create a box pleat (my first time). This better be cute when I’m finished because it hasn’t been a pleasure and it’s probably why I’ve laid it down a million times for other projects. I haven’t taken any pics of it so instead you get pictures of the dogs.

Whenever there is thunder Cher finds a way to squeeze herself behind me in the smallest space. She doesn’t care what’s going on and she just has to feel safe behind me. I don’t mind at all.

And this is Jellybean with one of her favorite toys, a pink dinosaur. I like to think they’re having peace talks after she flung that dino around and nibbled it all over.

I’m also still contemplating what to make with my 4 skeins of bright pink Berroco Modern Cotton. I’ve thought about making this top but I think I’m one skein short. There’s also this free pattern but I’m not sold on making such a simple top. I may just pull out my sketch pad and see what I can come up with on my own. Fingers crossed. What are you guys working on right now?

  1. Have you tried a thunder shirt for your pup? Some dogs seem to find them very comforting.

    I’m with you looking for the perfect tee pattern. I like your options, but need something in the sport weight range for some nice polished cotton that’s been in the stash too long.

    Just finished a scarf/shawl thing to go with a winter coat. THAT will have plenty of time to be blocked before I need it! And there’s a newborn baby boy needing a sweater for next winter. I’ll remember not to attempt something with hundreds of stitches in plain stockinette! πŸ™‚

    • Cher could care less about a thunder shirt and Jellybean is our fearless one. We’ve tried a lot to try to calm Cher but have found since we got Jellybean and she doesn’t react Cher’s reactions are less severe (she used to shake like a leaf). So I’ll take this little bit of progress ☺️

  2. Peace talks the pink dino! Lolololol!!!!! You know I’m a sucker for dog pics. Great post! πŸ™‚
