Home Again, Home Again

I managed to give my poor bunny head a body on the drive home yesterday. I'm planning to make her a dress, but I've had to re-start a couple of times. I need to think about it a little more before I give it another try. I, of course, want to do something "Chirstmas-y and will probably resort to copying one of Julie's dresses.."I love that knitting keeps getting more and more popular. Yesterday moring before we left Fortuna, we stopped at Starbucks, and there was evidence that knitting has truly become mainstream. Not only were there wreaths made out of ball of yarn everywhere, the cups themselves show a faint knit pattern on them. Starbucks, there is a reason that you and "Google" are two of the only coprorations I intentionally choose to support. We dutifully gave Gidget her anti-nausea medicine before we left....and as soon as we hit the first set of curves, she promptly threw up...on my shoes. You can't just stop along Hyw. 101 in the mountains since much of it is in a rock slide area, but luckily we weren't too far from Laytonville.She eventually just fell asleep. It wasn't that bad, but maybe we should think twice about taking her with us next time...Nah!. Still, we all appreciate what an "easy" dog Rowdy, our older beagle, is. We stopped in Healdsburg again for a break, and the beagles got a lot of attention. Of course, Gidget barked at all of the other dogs, especially a rather large, "wolf-dog," while Rowdy was quietly dignified or possibly was simply scared stiff.

I was thinking the exact same thing about the Starbucks wreaths on their doors! Knitting is mainstream! And I was planning to take a photo this week and post it. Great minds, huh?

My dd and sil gave me the white cable mug! They saw it and decided it was made just for me.

Gotta love it!

The bunny body is fantastic! What yarn are you usuing?

Your little bunnies always turn out so cute! Can't wait to see what type of dress you come up with.

The bunny is almost as cute as the beagles:-)

OK, now I feel slightly less guilty about obsessing about Starbucks and the possibility of hitting on in England. I used to swear I would never, ever go to a Starbucks, but they have Peppermint Mochas now coupled with knitting, how can you not go?

The dogs are cute, as ever!

Poor doggy!

I am a coffee addict, so Starbucks is Ok with me. I try to frequent local shops too, but there aren't that many.

I love the finished bunny. Very cute!
