We were headed to a grown-up's birthday party, with whiskey in mind for our gift, but wanted to wrap it in a unique way.

Well, I knit her this great little felted leash pattern in many colors of Cascade 220 so she could be even more beautiful out for her walks. I have a top… Continue reading Zoey’s leash
