Dog hoodie – update

She looks totally stressed out – clearly a camera shy dog!

I haven’t updated my blog in a while and there’s a good reason for that, as I’m on a short holiday in Poland. I decided not to bring any knitting or crochet projects with me. Honestly, it feels a little weird not to have my hands busy like I usually do at my own home when I’m sitting in front of TV or a computer, but I think it’s good to let my hands rest a bit. My right arm has been a little achy recently and I’m pretty sure it’s from knitting all the time, so I’m letting it rest and giving myself reason to miss the needles and hooks again ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s definitely working!

While I’m busy meeting up with my family and friends, visiting some of my favourite places and eating (especially eating!), I thought I’d update everyone on Nika’s hoodie.

Always ready for belly rubs – sweater or not

It’s been such a stressful little project for me, with her deep chest and without possibility to try it on as I’m knitting – and indeed it could be a little bigger. And definitely longer as it looks more like a sweater than full body lenght jacket! But it stretches enough that she can wear it and I think it’s going to be a good addition to her wardrobe in the fall. And I will now know how to adapt the pattern to fit her perfectly ๐Ÿ™‚

So tired!

I’m coming back to Ireland on Saturday and I’m going to catch up with my Arizona blanket CAL once I’m back. I’ll have three parts to crochet and I’m not sure right now if these are the last three, or if there’s going to be one more. In any case, it should be ready soon and I honestly can’t wait:)

Hope everyone’s having a great week! While I’m away from the needles, it’s great to be able to watch other people’s projects on Instagram and WordPress ๐Ÿ™‚
