I Found the Perfect Pattern for a Gift for My Sister…


…who, of course, has chosen to no longer speak to me (at least for the moment).

It’s the Morehouse Farms’ Dachshund Scarf. I’ve long been a fan of Morehouse Farms yarns — I first ran across them at the Farmers’ Market in Union Square, a couple of decades ago.  Their patterns are usually easy to read, and follow, and the results are exactly what you expect them to be.

It’s a pity my sister has closed herself off from me, but I’m sure that there will be someone else who will want to make or give this scarf, so I put the link above.  The thing is, my sister loves dachshunds and has raised a number of mini dachshunds so this would have been perfect for her.

Heck, I might eventually make it for myself — on of my favorite books as a kid was Pretzel, about a dachshund. Pretzel was written by Margaret Rey, and illustrated by H.A. Rey, the same folks who brought us Curious George (another kidhood favorite).

Anyway, I am still plugging along on Josie’s socks, and in deadline hell, so this is going to be a short entry.  I want to pick brains about another project I have in the pipeline, but that will just have to wait until I can organize my thoughts about it.

Does Anyone Recognize this Sweater Pattern?


I made this sweater at least a decade or two ago, and I cannot find anything resembling a pattern for it.  I might have improvised it as I went, but I don’t remember doing so.  If anyone can identify the pattern, I would be delighted, because I would love to make another one.

Thanks, everyone!
