Knitted with Dog Hair

Happy Thorsday!   Our apologies to those loyal folks who read both blogs.  The photos are the same, but the thoughts are very different.

October 2012 002Long ago, Mama started a blanket for a friend.  We don’t quite remember the order of things, but friend miscarried and this project was also the one Mama knitted on and cried over during Sissy’s eye surgery.  Mama put the project away for a long while, and then finally, about 8 months ago, we learned that some of our favorite locals were expecting.  

October 2012 001For whatever reason, Mama got a wild hair in the heat of summer to finish this blanket up for one of her MANY friends having a baby this year.  Good thing Baby E is growing up with a house full of dogs, because I’m pretty sure there’s not enough Dreft in podunk to get rid of the dog hair Mama knitted into this blanket.

And yeah, it was presented to the happy family, in the hospital, right after these photos were taken.  What part of they’re dog people who know us and love us confuses you?!

    […] girls blogged about this project today too.  The photos are the same, but the story is different.   The Yellow Argosy Baby Blanket began at the very end of December, 2010.  […]

    I remember every single horrible event that that blanket helped your momma get through. Knitting is therapy. It’s a beautiful blanket and yes – knitted with dog hair is indeed a show of love. g

    I once went to an open air craft show on the banks of the Chesapeake. There were some lovely items for sale. One crafts person had beautiful knit and sewn and embroidered items for sale and there was a sign on the corner of her table that stated ” no extra charge for dog hair”.

    We, of course, love it when dog hair gets knitted into anything! Makes the gift extra special 😉
