I have just borrowed a book from the library called Knitting for dogs... I dont know if any of you have seen it it's great it's by Kristi Porter. I will definately be knitting my little pooch something for Christmas. Also I went onto Knit Picks site to look at the yarn and chose some Ambrosia baby alpaca and cashmere. My knitting buddy over in Kansas is going to order it for me. I am going to knit a couple of scarves for pressies. There was a lovely free download for Dimple Shale Lace scarf it's lovely.
