Tuesday October 15

Half the month is over.  It is strange that we have not had a hard killing frost yet.  As strange as our weather was last spring nothing  is surprising anymore.

It began to rain again yesterday.  The fields look like they are  private lake property.   Ducks are finding new feeding spots.

Chance is so bored…when he gets bored he just wants to eat jerky treats…there is food in his bowl all the time so he is NOT starving to death.

I need a new scarf and a winter hat.  I used to be able to crochet.

I still can.

crochet cowl

I bought some funky yarn.  It has balls of fur and  Chance likes them. Far Guy said “If you find that all slobbery sometime, it is your own fault for dangling them in front of the dogs nose.”  Ya sure.

I crocheted a long piece and then sewed the two ends together… to form a cowl.  It is a bit weird.  I will probably rip it out…I think it needs to be wider and shorter.  The chenille yarn is soft and warm.  (Red Heart Boutique Chic yarn.)

I bought some more yarn, and am working on a different pattern.  A hat with a brim…at least that is my vision.  If that works I will crochet one with the funky yarn with the balls:)

I had to enlarge the picture to make sure I wasn't looking at some animal laying on the crocheted piece. Yes, you still can crochet! I used to do it, too. Maybe I'll take it up again this winter. :-)

That is unusual yarn. I'm afraid Far Guy might be right!! Chance may attack it at any given moment. Crocheting is a good way to pass times during these rainy days. Warm here too!!!

I haven't seen anything like that yarn around here.

Someone needs to tickle Chance's toes... :)

Now there's something I've never seen before! Looks like you've done a great job with the crocheting. I sewed a cowl neck-warmer for Augie a couple of years ago. Made it out of fleece. That, too, took a couple of tries to get it the right size. It was warm, though, and sometimes I think I should make one for myself.

Lots of rain? I think you must be in for lots of snow! Now take this forecast from someone who is thousands of miles away and has no expertise in forecasting!

Never heard of a yarn with balls. But you do very good work, Connie. :-)

My cat would love those fur balls! Iif you have any "mistakes", you can market them as pet toys. ;-)

Rita said...

Weirdest yarn I've ever seen! Karma would love those furballs, too. I sure can't blame Chance if he mauls them--LOL! :)
