I found this Japanese site with pictures of really cute crocheted hats made with linen thread. I happened to have linen thread so I have been trying to make one of the hats. Since I don't have the pattern, it's been a bit frustrating making it. I had to rip it, I don't know how many times, so far, and I am expecting some more ripping until I finish it. Although I love the softness and the nice weight of this linen hat, I think I will have to get a little break from it and go back to my 63 squares...
Guess what! I got a new puppy yesterday! :)))
She is a miniature schnauzer, 6 wks old. She is fearless, playful, and she loves to sleep on my lap. :) Oh, she doesn't have a name yet. I will try to come up with one later today. :)
It's been very hard for me since I lost my 10 year-old toy poodle while I was in Japan recovering from leukemia ( she was in the States). My husband couldn't tell me about her death until later. I even crocheted her a sweater in Japan looking forward to seeing her again. :'( I never wanted to talk about this tragedy with anyone but my husband , and I never thought I would have another puppy either... But today, I am starting over again with a great new puppy. :) I hope I didn't sound awful. Did I think I was ready for a new puppy? - I was not sure. Do I feel guilty? - Yes. My poodle will always be my special. But I do believe now that I am just having another special, precious friend. :)
