On a nippy clear blue-sky autumnal day,
what is a running, laughing, happy dog to do? ...
Where lanes are cool and muddy
and the air fresh and crisp...
You go for a swim of course.
In icy cool spring water,
where you can lie chin deep,
your tail floats
and your paws go numb with cold.
Then, having reached this happy state of partially frozen,
you get out, shake your fur
and start all over again!
I, on the other hand as a human,
plan a quick baking session,
a flick around with the vacuum,
A filling of the kettle
and serving biscuits and cakes,
and why should I be doing that?
Well, after a long break - a far too long-a-break,
our knit and natter group
will be getting together and
we're going to be a-knitting,
and of course
And there will be a rather special show and tell -
They will be whirled,
they will be twirled,
they will be much admired.
Sssshh another chrimbly pressie will be knitted..
Blankets for rescue cats and kittens will be crocheted,
The cast on row for winter dog-walking-mitts will grow.
Casting off of the rescued and unfinished lace knitted scarf scarf will happen,
another rescue cat blanket will sit on a knee
knowing that each cat rescued will be given a blanket,
and when rehomed,
the blanket goes too-
what a lovely thought xx
A beautifully crocheted on the diagonal
new baby blanket will get that little bigger...
in such happy colours.
The starting of hand stitching of festive tree trimming,
a bunting of holly leaves and berries.
There will be the most delicious shades of blue,
no not just the crocheted and knitted head band,
but also the hair and nails.
And a finally, there will be a last look
at two yummy stripey crochet blankety goodness!
There will be cake and biscuits to eat,
tea and coffee to drink.
Yes, I think our knit and natter afternoon
is going to be a good one :)
And the dog?
well, she and the cat
will decide that they would really
like to be a part of the afternoon.
I am pretty sure they will be involved.
