Emma, on a loose lead walk

Here's a video of Emma in her latest dog class, doing a loose lead walk.

The idea was that she wouldn't react to the other dogs when passing them

We're the walking pair - the woman without a dog in the middle is one of the two dog trainers - the woman that says "that's awesome" is the other trainer. She's taking the video.

Winter Socks!

Ok, it's not the best picture, but I did finally get them done!

Charade pattern - really nice to do
Trekking yarn

I'd always wanted those rag wool socks to wear - Mother always said No

But, here they are, slightly fancier than just a rib pattern, but nice and warm.

And the little diagonals that the slipped stitch makes - reminds me of ski tracks in the snow, or skating tracks.
I promise better pics -
