Two beagles

Filed under: Projects — Tags: , , , , — dusktreader @ 1:35 pm

If you know me, you might have heard me talk about about getting beagles. Two beagles. Someday, when the boy and I are a bit more settled and live in a dog-friendly place, there will be two beagles, Cedric and Schindler.

And then there will be sweaters. Matching sweaters. Not just dog sweaters that match each other, dog sweaters that match each other and the people sweaters I will make for me and the boy.

Tacky, tacky sweaters. I think the colours orange and green will be used, but those will not be the only colours. I expect several fair-isle motifs will also be involved.

And then we will have a portrait taken and put it on our Christmas cards for that year and send them to everyone we’ve ever met.

The only thing stopping me from casting on right this instant is that beagles come in a range of sizes and I want to wait until we have them and can take accurate measuments. I will probably start the people sweaters sometime in the next year or so. It will take a lot of yarn, so I should probably wait until I come across some sort of deal on dog-appropriate (read: washable) yarn for the main colour.

This has been my dream for over a year now. It was my anchor, something to make plans around, during all the uncertainty that graduating brings up around where to live and where they’ll hire me and what my life will look like in 5 years.

Two beagles. Four matching sweaters. It’s happening.
