Slowly Getting Back To Normal....



It feels like I have been ill forever, although 10 days being poorly is still unheard of for me. However, the bug is slowly subsiding and thankfully my vision is returning - that was the worst part last week, being home yet unable to do anything as everything I looked at was out of focus.

So I have been able to put some work in the above pencil drawing of a gazelle - still quite a long way to go with this one but it is proving enjoyable and I'm pleased with it so far.


I enjoy knitting these little dogs - just as well as I can't keep one in my Etsy shop for more than a few hours these days! They always turn out with their own personalities and this little chap is no exception. He's quite tiny compared to previous ones ( knitted on size 14 needles - no wonder my sight is blurry!) and I have been experimenting with adding a few patches. Worked quite nicely too!

What I do find tedious is knitting all their accessories - the bed in particular just takes ages. I am looking forward to choosing the yarn for this dog's coat though - it will have to be something very fine in order to make the correct size, probably sock yarn.

You gazelle is looking great. Can't wait to see it finished.

The new little dog with the patches is sweet. :-)

You've had a rotten time and I am glad you are finally getting better. Look after those eyes of yours.

I'm glad to hear that you are feeling a little better. I love the little dog. He's so cute! The gazelle is just breath taking!
