I usually have a knitting project in mind when I write it into one of my books, but Laura’s apricot-colored shawl just kind of appeared upon the page as I was writing the first scene of Lady Wynwood’s Spies, volume 4: Betrayer , and it surprised even me. I immediately went to my yarn stash to find a yarn for it, and I searched through my antique knitting books to find some stitch patterns. I made her an elegant wool shawl she could wear at home. The shawl ended up tagging along with Laura into the next book, Lady Wynwood’s Spies, volume 5: Prisoner , where it imparts some comfort to her in her trying circumstances. The two stitch patterns are both from the same book, The Lady’s Assistant, volume 2 by Mrs. Jane Gaugain, published in 1842 . A couple excessively clever and creative knitters might have knit these patterns in the Regency era, but they would have only passed them around by word of mouth or scribbled “recipes” to friends or family, and it wouldn’t have been widely use
He's cuter than my mutt! haha I think he's adorable.......ugly.....but adorable. lolReplyDelete
He's endearing. :)ReplyDelete
cute, cute, cute! VERY cute. :)ReplyDelete
He's handsome in a rugged sort of way. ; )ReplyDelete
I think he's so ugly that he's cute.ReplyDelete
He has his "own" adorable look. You just want to hug him.ReplyDelete
Hahaha ... he is so weird looking it makes him cute. He's 1/2 scottie and 1/2 pomerian. What you can't see from this photo is his "beard" and the tuffs of lion fun around his neck.ReplyDelete
He is a sweetie, though. He sits ON my feet as I write.
I've seen Jake in person...he's so ugly he's cute!ReplyDelete
He's absolutely adorable, in a homewrecker-sort-of-way. He could persuade you to take him home, despite that fact that you're not allowed to have dogs in your apartment building and your husband is allergic to dogs and you have three cats who hate dogs . . . And still, you would find a way to keep him! AND he would be your best friend. He would understand all your problems and never tell your secrets. This guy is Toto, all the way. You would run away from home just to keep him!ReplyDelete
Have you ever heard the saying, "So ugly he's cute?" Nah, the puppy's cute.ReplyDelete
Well, I vote cute, but I'm really partial to Scots, even halvlings (is that a word?)ReplyDelete
My little West Highland Terror sits on my feet, too. Extremely loyal dogs, the Terrors are.
I think he's cute in a Billy Crystal sort of way. ;-)ReplyDelete
Oh no! He's precious...absolutely precious!ReplyDelete
