Happy Birthday Rosie

When I realized I'd have Rosie at my house while she was celebrating her birthday my friends and I came up with a great idea, I said "I'll knit Rosie a birthday hat!" Then Lara said "Better yet, felt it!" So I did, doesn't she look cute?
The dogs celebrated Rosie's day by munching on some Greenies. "Yum" they said.

She immediately ripped the hat off her head and attacked it.

Casey had to get in on the fun too. Rosie's wondering why he's wearing a pink hat. Duh, boys don't wear pink!

And Casey is wondering why I make him model these weird things.

Don't worry Casey, next year I'll knit you a blue one.

What cuties. I can only imagine you're taunting them with some sort of treat to get them to look so attentive and adorable. ;) Cute with the hat! You can save it now for many birthdays to come.

Ah! A knitter AND a dog-lover! What a great combination in life. Thanks for the pattern.

I've got a blog too, about knitting, life, and setting up a yarn website.
