Passap Dog Paw Print Afghan


I bought the rights to use the clip art of the dog in the frame awhile back. Yesterday I decided to make an afghan. I must have changed the design and rows for three hours!

I like how it came out though the dog could use some better shaping up. However, when I took the picture I saw something that I did not see otherwise. Why is that?  At the bottom on the second stripe it looks like holes. The only thing I can think happened was that slack was not taken up in the mast when I knit the row. The colors are brown, tan and cream. I am going to shorten the afghan a little more.

When I knit it again I will post the directions and the files for DAK and win/crea. It will be for your use only and not mass production knitting. You can change the colors of the dog, give him spots, make him larger or smaller and add your dog’s name.

Today I am going to rewind all the yarn and do it again. Or….maybe paint my bedroom. 🙂 

FB100 Disk Drive for the Brother Machines.


I recently went to use my FB 100 disk drive on my Brother machine and it kept coming up error . Okay, where are the error codes? I pulled out my new one in its box, it must be there.Nope! Luckily I put my hands on a really worn sheet of instructions by Sonja Vaughn and it also has the error codes. Also I found two pages by Jean Blood that give instructions for the machine. I  also posted the booklet that is with my new .

Here is the drop box link for the instructions
