Dog Days Contest

So, we're supposed to post our favorite homemade item. As I wore my bamboo vest yesterday and received the ultimate compliment - "But it doesn't LOOK handmade!" - that's currently my favorite. This photo doesn't do it justice, but alas, it's all I have to offer.

As for something I've seen on another blog I'd like to make, I want to make the socks Devon made her Sockza pal. (That's not the best photo of them, but you can always visit Devon's blog for more!)
Folks, I am alive, but life is still crazy. My Green Yarn Junkies package did arrive yesterday, but this is the truth; I had to have Mark open it for me while I was preparing a new brownie recipe to take to our Pampered Chef meeting. I will post pictures and details this evening. Thanks to Flowerpot for sending out a great package.

I love those type of comments!
Great job on your vest! It is cool down for a brief moment here! :o)

Really like your photo shoot!

Can't wait to see the green goodies!

Nice vest. I really like it. The socks are super cool too. I just wanted to come and check your website to get an idea of where you are from. My cousin spells her name the same way you do. I wanted to make sure it wasn't her!

Oh I like those socks too!
I love the look of your bamboo sweater!
I have a bamboo sweater, (more like a Jersey really.) and I really don't care for the shedding.
It is knit 7 sts. to the inch.
Does your vest shed? Maybe my sweater just has bad yarn or something.
Oh I just looked at your vest again, I really do like the style and colors!
