Where is Kendall? The Answer

You might be tempted to think that Kendall made the trek to Philadelphia to get her picture taken next to Ben Franklin in the picture I posted yesterday. But no, she only made the car trek to nearby McMinnville, OR. During our last outing to wine country, we went to downtown McMinnville to walk around among the changing leaves. The bronze statue of Ben Franklin sitting on a bench is part of their art program. Apparently, it's on loan until January 2010.

Where is Kendall?

Anyone have any idea where this picture was taken? Hint: Kendall hasn't been on an airplane.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

On the Road Again

I'm on the last of a series of business trips, and this one brought me to sunny South Florida. I'm lucky enough to be staying right near the beach and in clear view of the cruise ship docks. Yesterday morning the Oasis of the Seas came into port. It's the largest cruise ship in the world. It came in with quite a lot of fanfare.

New Sweater

I finally finished the sweater I started knitting last spring with the knitting group. I only knit when I travel, and I've been doing a lot of that lately. I was able to finish knitting the sweater on yesterday's flight and sewed it up this afternoon - just in time to post before I fly out again.

I can't say she's in love with it, but I'm sure she'll like it more when winter sets in and it makes her nice and warm. It's a Cascade 220 washable wool in a blue heather tone. I knitted it in a ribbing pattern since she was still growing when I started the project.

The armholes came out a little big, but the length under her belly and along her back came out perfect.

The pattern and the measurements for adapting it to your dog can be found here.
