Finally Finished

Linny in the Oriental Lily Dress

Oriental Lily is a free internet pattern. It was an easy knit. It called for a DK weight yarn but I had the Berroco Geode, a light worsted, in stash and it really knit up nicely. I would think of it as a winter dress, but the weather in Arcata is cool, even in August, and you can see Linny seems very comfortable wearing it for the farmers market on the Plaza.

Perry in Carlos aka Growling Dog Sweater

I started the growling dog sweater in May of 2008 intending to finish it before Perry turned one. Fortunately it's big enough because he's pretty close to turning two now. The pattern is called Carlos and is from the Berroco Design Team. It's knit in Berroco Comfort DK, a soft acrylic yarn.

Hello there - I came across your blog through ravelry looking for new knit bloggers to connect with. You first caught my eye because you have "adoption" in your name because my son is adopted and we are (slowly) in the process of adopting another. And then upon reading your blog I see you love the outdoors - imagine my surprise when you referenced wild berries and the AT = we just came back from a week in Maine. While we didn't traverse the AT at all, we did do a few toddler friendly hikes. Your grandkids are adorable. I shall return!
