A Little Something

I don’t have alot of time to blog today (i’m busy busy) so here’s 2 little videos of little Sophie in action. FYI I have been knitting but everything is taking FOREVER. Hopefully I’ll be able to give you some updates soon.

Sophie insists that she cannot go down the stairs by herself. I think its pure laziness. This video is proof that she can, if she wants a stick bad enough!

Just a note, this is not my ash tray (it is for my mom). I don’t smoke and think it’s TERRIBLE! (no animal was harmed in the filming of this video 🙂 LOL I’m soo lame.

Rubba dub dub… she hates the tub

I gave Sophie her bath today. For some reason she hates being in the tub (even though she will chase a goose into a pond!). She has to get over it since she is a morkie.This is the “patheticness” that it my puppy.



Her first of many attempts at escaping.



She looks like one of those naked dogs.


This is her favorite part, when I take her out and wrap her up like a baby.


Sophie, meet Mr. Hairdryer.

She actually didn’t mind the blow dryer. She barked at first but she got over it.



Finished product! Look at that huge smile. Isn’t she cute?! After a bath she knows she looks good. She runs around the house… wait no, she prances around the house.

Luckily, we won’t have to go through this pathetic debacle until another 2 weeks! Right now it’s time to run around and play!

Puppy in the Pond

Just a quick post before I post  today’s events. I just have to quickly share this hilarious story of what happened on Saturday.

So Saturday was my Nana’s birthday. We all went to my Aunt’s house to have dinner and cake. My Aunt lives out in the country. She has barn, chickens, and a pond, just like a house in the country should.


Anywho, that is the setting of the story. This is where it gets interesting. We decided to bring Sophie the cityn dog with us. My aunt has a Labrador (Hunter) and a cat (Miss Kitty).  We were so curious to see what Sophie would do with another dog (she has never really seen another dog before)


So we bring her over and she is totally a normal puppy. she tries to play with Hunter, but he is either afraid of her or getting to old ot play. We tried to keep Miss Kitty away.

W bring Sophie outside so she can run around and go the bathroom. I didn’t see any need to put a leash on her since she is always by myside.  My uncle and cousin were fishing and sophie was having fun watching them and tryingto eat their hot dog bait.


After that we take her torwards the barn so she can visit the chickens. The out of no where a huge goose comes flying down. Sophie takes off after it towards the barn. You might be able to figure out what happened next by the title. I was sure she was going to stop (she hates the bath), but SHE JUMPED RIGHT IN!!!! My 3 lb puppy is in the pond with  a big old goose! My mom and I started to scream.  Sophie went under for like 1 second but it flet like eternity. She popped back up and swam back to us. I didn’t know she could swim.

She was dripping wet and it was only 45 degrees outside. My uncle and cousin were laughing hysterically. Did I mention that she was wearing her hand knit sweater?!


It had to be one of the funniest things EVER! I swear she thinks she is a great dane.  I could not believe she jumped into the pond. That is Sophie’s personality though.  I’m not sure she’ll be allowed to run around their yard without a leash next time.

What I Love About You

I thought I would right the ten things I love about Sophie, so I can look at this and remember why I love her after she pees on the carpet, chews on furniture, or rolls in dirt.



1. You look extra adorable in bows (even though you won’t wear them for more than 5 seconds)


2. You try your hardest not to eat my yarn (but sometimes you lose that will to try) Yuummmm… malabrigo.


3. You fit in my purse!


4. You are extra cuddly.


5. You give lots of kisses ( This is only good during the day, when I’m awake!)


6. You wear the sweaters that i knit for you!


7. You are so curious! (This can be a bad thing at times)


8. I LOVE it when you sleep.

fairislesweater-0119. You are so fun to play with (but again when I ‘m awake, not when I’m trying to sleep)


10. You have the most sweetest and quirkiest personality and temperament!

So the next time I’m yelling “SOPHIE!!!!” becasue she’s trying to chew the wall and I have to take some Tylenol, I’ll have this to read and remind me why I love her so darn much!

Pink and Green Obsession

I am a girl of many obsessions. Knitting, The Beatles, yarn, Ravelry, Cleveland Indians, Sophie, Twilight, etc. But one of my biggest obsession that has grown over the years is my obsession with green and pink.


I call these my preppy socks. I had to hand dye the yarn becasue I could not find and pink and green sock yarn! I don’t think I’ve ever seen pink and green yarn in any weight! I’m gonna have to write a letter to someone about this national issue!


Pink and green birthaday card from my mom. Nobody knows me better!


Notebook, tin, mascara. Getting tired of seeing pink and green yet?


This is my all time favorite find. It was $1 at target! How can something so small and so cheap make me soo happy?. It sits on my desk so when I need something to pick me up, I just look at this. I haven’t even taken it out of the wrapper. It’s too cute!


Pink and green flowers.  Let’s continue…


Okay,  so you had to know that Sophie would be somewhere in this post (like always).


I had this dilemma that I had all these trinkets and cards that were really important to me. I didn’t want to put them out because it makes the room look cluttered and I didn’t have the strength to throw them out. So I found this adorable box at Old Time Pottery, so when I have things that are important to me (birthday cards, baseball tickets, postcards) I just throw them in this box. Then every so often I go throw the box and reminisce. It makes me happy 🙂


This is getting ridiculous now!

When I walk into a store and I find something that’s pink and green it feels like I found gold. I can’t help it I’m addicted! Oh ya, another example of my obsession with pink and green is my blog theme :/

No Name Socks


I have been racking my brain to come up with a name for these socks.  I always have fun naming my different projects, but I am totally drawing a blank.  First I thought of calling them peanut butter and jelly… NO there is no pink jelly and its not the color of peanut butter.  Then I thought hmm… Striking Stripes?… no… Sassy Stripes?…no. I finally gave up and just called them No Name Socks.

The yarn is Patons Kroy Sock Yarn. I was a little disappointed at the amount of yarn. I’m so used to KNit Picks spoiling me with 244 yards a skein, these skeins only have 166. I was very surprised at how wide the stripes knit up though. I was expecting thin stripes, but was pleasantly surprised to see these large stripes (my favorite) Of course I’m knitting 2 at a time on circulars  using magic loop (once I learned this I took a vow never to use DPNs ever again).

Have you ever had the problem while your knitting that your neck gets cold? Not me!



It’s the new and improved knitting neckwarmer! Yes, it is my Sophie. It never fails that when I sit down to start to knit, she crawls up on my shoulder. It’s her favorite spot. I must admit that she sometimes maybe possibly does it in the car. I know it’s a horrible habit, but she’s so warm and cozy and she makes cute little puppy noises. I’m just imagining what’s gonna happen when she ways 7 lbs (if she even makes it to that weight). Oh well, I love it  for now 🙂

Pretty in Pink Sweater

Finished another sweater for my etsy shop! I knit this out of leftover Cascade 220.  These are really fun to knit! IF you get a chance PLEASE check out my store. I don’t want to be one of those people who have to plug their sites every 5 seconds, but it you have the money and love your dog, please buy a sweater (it would help me out a bunches). The site is tulip and willow (the link is on the side). I’m planning on adding sweaters that are completely customizable. You can choose size (up to a medium). color of sweater, if you want embroidery or applique, and color of applique or embroidery. So keep a look out for that.  I’m hoping it will bring in more business and it will let buyers be involved and have fun. Now that we got that out of the way…

Here are some pics of the sweater. I’m gonna try to get some more pics later. Sophie was not in the picture taking mood and it started to rain!


In case any one is wondering, the bird applique is made out of Amy Butler fabric.  I think her fabric is so chic and cute.  LOVE it!
