The Third Dog:


Now, how could I resist a pattern called after the designer's husband's nom de plume; "3rd Dog"!


Pattern: 3rd Dog by Lorraine Umbers Yarn: Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock - Lightweight Color: Oregon Red Clover Needles: Knitpick DPN's US 1 (2.25) Started: November 29, 2009 Completed: December 4, 2009.

Note: This is my favorite pair of STR socks that I have ever knitted. The pattern was easy and moved along really quickly. I knit the entire pair while I watched hockey and football. The pile for the Christmas Basket is getting along very nicely - I actually have two more pair on the needles!

We are almost ready for Christmas here. Puck and I have a complete BBQ pork sandwhich menu made up for Christmas Eve and the nieces and nephews are all getting Pook Toques for Christmas. Really. Teen and I brought a couple home from Vancouver and they have become the hit amongst the 8th graders in my son's group of friends.

I haven't toured my Christmas decorations, nor have we made any college decisions, we seem to be in a state of stasis. I do have new yarn though! I'll show you later...

Cant wait to see the new yarn!!!

your menu sounds delish!!!!
 
Pretty socks!

Gah, good thing you have new yarn to help keep you sane, eh?
 
Ooo, I love those socks! Love the toques too.
 
Love the hats and those socks!
Shocking out of the blue change in post-high school plans just took place at my house ~ this was much easier when I was just in charge of it all and only had to consider other opinions.
 
Your new socks seemed to add three more pair to my queue on Ravelry. I think I can handle it though. The socks look great (as usual) and I can't wait to see the yarn that has found a home in Minnesota.
 
I love the cabling on those socks. Are you going to be in the STR club this year? I keep thinking about it, but I don't think I can pull it off this year.

Merry Christmas to you and yours!!
