Dogs on Thursday

For this week's Dogs On Thursday, I'm bringing back this photo of Tara from a few months ago:
She is modeling some knitting-in-progress. Anyone remember what it is? Here is some more knitting-in-progress:
Any ideas what it might be? Here's a hint, it's not a skanky bikini for a doll! It's light bulbs!

My friend Pat and I made a string of knitted Christmas bulbs for one of the trees at work. The theme for the museum's display this year is "A Handmade Christmas" so we've been working on all kinds of handmade ornaments, and of course we did a tree of knitted ornaments! Thanks to Ravelry, we had no shortage of patterns. Take a look at these teeny tiny sweaters.
Here is the completed knitted star that Tara was modeling.

And here is the tree of knitted ornaments in all its glory:
Working on this tree is the most fun I've had at work in a long, long time!

How cute. I've been trying to think of a tree for the library. Maybe next year I can have a knit ornament tree.

love it all! Can't deny I'm terribly torn on a favorite though: those tiny sweaters or the light bulbs - ALL very creative, but I never doubt you in that department :)
