The Weekend is Almost Here and Nicki the Great Dane Puppy!

It is Friday morning here at Leyden Glen Farm and the last day to do anything on the three page list I have made. Yikes. Not a prayer it will all get done. But whatever..... Here's the scene out the porch windows with the fog lifting and the light filtering through it.


The students will be arriving tomorrow morning and we'll be spending two days together knitting away. I hope they all have a nice time and I look forward to meeting all of them. There is still some room in the August 14/15th class if you are interested.

I'll leave you with this awesome photo of our neighbor Patty's Great Dane PUPPY Nicki. Isn't she beautiful? I asked Patty if she would mind me photographing Nicki with a floral lei around her neck. Nicki is so incredibly well-behaved and trained. I can't believe how BIG she is getting. Thanks Patty!

You can purchase the pattern for Olympia's Knit + Crochet Felted Floral Lei here on my shop page.

Faina from The Designer's Studio just posted an interview with me here. Do you know her blog? It has all kinds of fun interviews with many knitting and crochet designers. Check it out.

Good weekend everyone. I know I will be having a fun one.

Gorgeous view Kristin! How wonderful to wake up a see that first thing in the morning. Wishing you a lot of fun with the class this weekend. Maybe one day I will be able to come to one. :)

What a view! You'll never tire looking at the changes the seasons bring.

Are you sure that's a puppy??? So adorable...but BIG!

I wish I lived closer to you, I'd take your class! Nikki is a huge but adorable pup.

Very happy here for you with your new studio. I'm sure many exciting things will be going on there. (That floor alone is inspiring!)

And that dog -- what can I say? She looks like she's been waiting all her young life to be adorned with flowers. Hooray puppies and yarn flowers.

Loving your neighbors dog! My daughter has a 2 year old great dane in her life and while I am chicken around most dogs, this large, gentle giant named Dakota is somehow my favorite! I'll show your wonderful photo to our Dakota and see if she gets jealous of the flower lei :)

The view is fantastic - I could look at that forever.

Nicki is wonderful - what a perfectly gorgeous/handsome model. She looks so good in her lei. She also, as a puppy, looks to be already bigger than my 50lb shepherd mix.
