Last night I practiced building on my chain stitch and actually counting stitches. I probably restarted 10 different times, just to get the hang of it, but one time I just kept going and as I looked at the sleeping dog on my lap, I got an idea, added some fringe and tada! He's ready for a North Dakota Christmas!
He was buried under blankets and in a deep sleep, so I enticed him with a little piece of ham. I think that accounts for some of his peculiar/desparate expressions.
He was trying to lay down, roll over & shake to win the ham.
