Still Following Finn

As you can see, there is still Finn following going on here. I finished the first sock and have started the second. I'm going to be looking for a bell like everyone suggested. As smart as he is it shouldn't take him long to figure that part out. I did get a better picture of the stitch pattern this morning than I did yesterday. You can also see that I used the Eye of Partridge heel instead of just Heel Stitch (Eye of Partridge is Heel Stitch, offset every two rows and it makes a checkerboard pattern instead of just ribs). I love the colors in this yarn and honestly I'm not sure why. I usually like brighter, more distinct colors and I don't like tan, but this tan is more of a taupe and something about the blues and dusty purples reminds me of evening, when the light is fading but its not quite dusk yet. Its probably all in my head, but I'm thinking this will look great with jeans and since I practically live in jeans, they should get a lot of wear.

I love those colors!! Those should definitely go well with jeans, and be pretty to boot.

The good thing about Finn following, I guess, is that you get plenty of time to knit!

My sister-in-law taught her dog to ring some big jingle bells she hung on her back door. So the dog would nudge them when he sat at the door and alert everyone he needed to go out - 1 year later and it works great and he doesn't feel the need to bark or whine. Best of luck with the puppy training.

I for one love your eye for color and this sock pattern is perfect for your yarn choice.
Re: Finn, he will catch on so quickly you will not realize the smooth transition. Patience pays off!
We have a 3 yr old Shepherd/hound mix - looks like a shepherd but short legged like hound. Too cute.
Now we have a 4 month old puppy whom I was able to train in 3 weeks. Crate training -. He no longer needs it locked up he goes to the door and barks on his own now - he is a Dobe/Beagle mix. I should post pictures - huh.
They are a joy just as children bring joy, love and laughter to our lives!
