A Finish

I finished up my striped baktus scarf recently. I actually think if I make this again I’ll elongate it instead of making it this much of a triangle. And I probably will make this again, it’s a pleasant knit.

I used handspun yarn for this, grey and yellow, but the grey had some yellow in it. So while it’s striped, the striping is a little bit vague in certain areas. I kind of love that! I ran out of grey yarn, so one end fully yellow but I don’t think it’s too noticeable.

In other news, our new foster dog arrived.

She has winged eyeliner! She’s super cute and sweet and absolutely the most laid back dog we’ve ever fostered. She’s too easy. Fully potty trained with absolutely no adjustment accidents, loves to chill and nap, is not a morning dog and would prefer to stay warm and cozy in bed, just super easy all the way around. She is finishing up her last few days of kennel rest from heartworm treatment and I haven’t had to kennel her since she’s perfectly happy to laze around the house without the kennel. Naturally, because she’s so easy, she’ll be meeting her potential new home less than a week after she arrived to us.

This went so fast that it may be quite some time before we get another foster dog! I imagined having her through the bulk of March and then getting the next in April, but she’ll likely be gone so fast that we’ll have a pretty long break between fosters this time. That’s ok, a quick turn around means she gets to land in her forever home as fast as possible and that’s a good thing!

That’s all for today, but I do have a new project on the needles I should try to get posted shortly!

  1. I LOVE your knit up. IT is gorgeous. !!!!!!!!!

    DARN, THAT’S THEY kind of perfect dog I didn’t think existed in foster or shelters. They are usually “busy” and “hard of hearing” due to their poor training. I hear there is a huge need for trainers now that all the COVID stay at home pups are growing up. When is the right time to train a dog? Yesterday of course.
