The Beret & Ike comes to visit

This is the finished beret which looked like a pumpkin. I am very pleased with the result although I didn't write down all the pattern as I knitted. I was making up the pattern when I was sitting in the hospital with David and was sure I would remember what I had done...but no
On the left is Darwin and on the right is Ike. I couldn't get the dogs to stand still for a minute to get a good photo. Too much energy. Ike is to be the future man in Mopsy's life.

Mopsy in the collar

Mopsy had a trip to the vet and ended up having to wear an Elizabethan collar for a week. She coped well but David had to make a verandah on her kennel. It took Mopsy the full week to work out she could back into her kennel.
I make many knitted felted hats so decided to have a go at making a beret. This is the funny pumpkin shape so far but hope the pumpkin will turn into a beret after next lot of felting.

Now that David is home from hospital I am back to spinning my yarn called Curly Fleece. Sometimes I find an extra special fleece and its like spinning clouds. Today I have been dyeing Pencil yarn for a customer and Curly Fleece yarn for the market.
Tomorrow will be a busy day finishing felted hats, labelling yarn, packing for the market and also Jane, Mopsy's breeder is calling in.
