I have the best daughters ever! They got me a dog for Hanukkah! (Sadly we had to put our Golden down two months ago and they knew I wanted another dog.)
What else do you name a dog given on Hanukkah, but Hanukkah Harry. Harry for short. He came complete with a singing dreidel.
Harry is a 5 month old, mostly pointer, rescue dog from North Carolina that found it’s way to our local Humane Society.
He is a total love. We do have to move all manner of things to high ground. He tried to make off with a ball of yarn already. We had a bit of a chat about that.
He does cut into my knitting time, I’ll have to work on that. On a knitting note, I did manage to finish one Hanukkah present, Honey Cowl knit with Schaefer Nichole fingering weight yarn. You have to work 3 rows of reverse stockinette at the end before binding off and I made it with that little bit of yarn left. I hung it on her coat as a surprise. Of course the weather isn’t warm enough for a coat, so she didn’t notice. The little bugger!
The rest of the family got the promise of knits to come. They were good with that.
