Brian and Buttercup

We have Goldendoodle puppies!  I want to share some cute pictures.  This little boy is my favorite!  They are all adorable cute puppies, but Brian has formed an attachment to me. I was trying to take some pictures to list them for sale and he would not leave my side long enough for me to get a snapshot.   I turned the lens around to get pics of him with me.

Look how sweet he is!  He is giving me a cuddle!  Unfortunately, it makes no sense for me to keep any of our pups.  My pets are his parents.  Here are a few more pics.,

This is Buttercup.  She is stunning!  She is so beautiful.

fullsizeoutput_343eLook at her coat.  It is so thick and curly.  Her mother, Sandy, could have been a show dog.  She is really pretty.  Our vet tells us so :-).  Our vet gets down on the floor and cuddles Sandy and pours out compliments to her.  Buttercup takes after her mother.

We also have a few black Goldendoodles, but they are hard to photograph at times.

The black Goldendoodles have such silky curls.  The creams ones are more like cotton fluff and the black pups have silky curly coats.

If you’ve stuck with me thru the adorable puppy pictures, I have one more thing to show you.   My step-daughter, Bailey, is super creative and talented.  She made me a logo for “Achickthatknitz”.     What do you think?   It’s me.

She actually started custom making these.  She will work with you to make a logo.  I’m so impressed with her talent.

Happy Thanksgiving !

Season of the Cowl

Len and Bailey in her hometown of Wyoming.

This is my husband, Len, and his daughter, Bailey.   She is pregnant with her first, a boy named Henry.   I made her the red cabled baby blanket, as pictured in my last post.  I also made her a cowl to match.  Her cowl is the “GAP-tastic Cowl” which you can find on Ravelry.  It’s basically just a seed stitch pattern.  Both yarns are from Plymouth Yarn Co.  The baby blanket is Encore Chunky and the cowl is Baby Alpaca Grande.

Grey Cabled Baby Blanket with Goldendoodle pups.

This is one of the baby blankets I made in a different yarn that is the same as the red baby blanket in my previous post.  See, it’s super pretty in any yarn!  Our Goldendoodles are growing so fast.  They are adorable!

Back to the cowls….

Len is in Wyoming and I didn’t have anyone to help with pics.   You can still see the cuteness of the cowl.   I had some yarn left over so I made a hat to match.  I had to be creative because I had little of the cream left and more of the variegated color.  It’s not an exact match, but it still goes together.  I made the pompom with my hand.  No tools used at all.  (Big pat on my back here). The hat pattern is from the “Chunky Beanie” by NatHipKnits on Ravelry.

Max loves all my knits.  It’s so cute.  Len is retired and home all the time.  Max is used to having someone here.   He doesn’t like to be alone and he’s always with someone, regardless of what we are doing.   I was doing some chores the other day, in particular, laundry.  I was going from room to room putting away the laundry and when he would notice I had left the room, he would meow.  I would holler, “I’m in here Max.” and you could hear the frantic pitter patter of his paws racing to find me.  It was so funny.   We did this from room to room while doing my chores.  Cracked me up!

This is my daughter, Lindy.  This is several years ago.  I think she was 17 here.  She will be 21 this December.  She is wearing the “Drop Stitch Cowl” by Abi Gregorio.  She gets tons of compliments on this when she wears it.  I bought some super chunky yarn from Tuesday Morning for this.

I miss my man so much!  Eagerly awaiting his return home.
