a present and some puppies

i finished the ChicKnits mondocable shell i was making for my mom for mother's day. i had to finish it while i was in phoenix visiting, but at least i got to give it to her before i left. here she is modeling it:

i used 4 skeins of Plymouth Yarn "Fantasy Naturale", which is 100% cotton. it's knit on #9 needles, so it came out thicker than i was imagining, but i'm still happy with it, and don't think it will be too hot for crazy Phoenix weather. this is the biggest project i've finished since i started knitting. and i learned how to do mattress stitch.

while in phoenix i also got to meet my parents' new puppies for the first time. they are scottish deerhounds, and they are only 7 months old and GINORMOUS. their names are Alex and Malachy.

and here they are again with a little chocolate lab puppy for scale.
