Treasures, slice and bake dog cookies and a little tiny decorating...........
I was on a baking spree this morning and made a loaf of banana nut bread and then moved on to making treats for the girls. I had been wanting to try this recipe for awhile and so glad I did! I thought it was the usual "roll out and cut out" type dough which I don't mind at Christmas time but for as many dog treats as I make it is time-consuming and messy. Surprise, surprise! These are not cut out....these are form the dough like a tube and "slice and bake"! I whipped them out in no time.
They do use wheat flour and I'm not sure that is on the approved list from my vet. I have other flours I can use though such as oat and barley etc. Nitty is allergic to several things.
I was going to make my regular bread too but got distracted by the mail that arrived from Knit Picks!
I got my DPN's size 6 so I can continue knitting my sweater finally.............
Plus my first ever Felici sock yarn...........I think it is the Hibiscus colorway............it was actually the only one left! I've heard many good things about this yarn and one is the price! LOL!
I also received 5 skeins of pure wool for a project Iwill tell you more about on YOP Sunday........and I knitted my first gauge square! On top of that it came out fine the first time! It was supposed to be 4" X 4" and it was 4" X 4 1/4" which is close enough for me....better a little big than too small. It calls for size 11 needles and 2 strands knitted together neither of which I had used before. Those needles feel huge but so much fun and it creates a really squishy fabric.
My gift box is filling up.....washcloth #5, but actually these are all allocated already so I must continue on!
Remember the plant stand I got at a sale and it was brass? I painted it last fall and never utilized it but today I finally did...............I'm hoping Miss Peeps leaves it alone! There's another holder for a plant on the bottom but she would definitely get into that one so it will stay empty! LOL!
BTW..........the robins showed up here yesterday! I love them and their beautiful songs but it will be short lived as they are "just passing through" on their way North. They never stick around for our hot summers. I wish I could go with them!
