Dogs on Thursday...

and another contest...

and another egg!

Looky look at what came in the mail today, just in time for Dogs on Thursday. Stitch markers that I bought from Nichole's Etsy site! Aren't they great? My photography isn't the best, but they are pewter, snag-free stitch markers, with a dog theme. Dogs, dog house, dog bones...what could be better?

What did I do right away? Put them to use.
It's kind of hard to see them in this picture, but I replaced my boring old stitch markers with new doggie ones on these three socks-in-progress. They make me smile every time I come around to them in my knitting!

Speaking of Nichole, she is having a contest in honor of ASPCA Day! It's a fun contest for a great cause, with multiple ways to win, so head on over to her website and get yourself entered! Woof!

Oh, and is anyone keeping track of how many eggs that little floozy of a chicken Ducky has laid? There was another one today, bringing the total to 15. Cripes!

Love the new markers.

Good grief Ducky... Does she realize she has to chase all those kiddos around?!

Donna Lee said...

Are you raising those eggs or turning them into omelettes? Is that insensitive? Poor Ducky. She seems determined to repopulate the chicken portion of the family!

Those are REALLY cute stitch markers.

Love the stitch markers!! Maybe there are fertility healing properties in the igloo??? Maybe that rooster hasn't been quite so platonic after all?!?!

Okay, those stitch markers are too cute. I wonder if they come in chihuahua? ;) Love the socks as well.
