More Sad News

Sadly, my sister lost her 10 year old dog Brandy this week. It was a sudden loss due to complications of a severe infection.

On the crafting front, I am still working on the last sleeve of the Banff sweater. I had to pull it out and restart it three times because the ribbing in this nubbly yarn is so hard to keep straight. I decided to just do straight ribbing instead of the section of decrease and increase included in the pattern so that I can actually get the darn thing done this month! Also, finally figured out a new pattern to use for the quilt for my sister and BIL that uses Vikings fabric on one side and fishing/deer fabric on the other. It is a simple style and is based on this Thimbleberries pattern.

I am sorry to hear about Brandy. Where was the infection that she succumbed to from? Had she had recent surgery? Did she have bad teeth? A bite wound? Just curious is all, I'm a vet tech. It's hard to lose a family member!
