When a fur coat is not enough

Here's our Gertie keeping warm in this sub zero weather. She loves it outside, the colder the better. But she's not averse to snuggling in a nice wool blanket when she comes inside. Isn't she the cutest? Who could refuse that sweet face? It hasn't gotten above zero today. It truly is bitterly cold.

Working on another fan lace scarf, this time on my standard gauge machine with Brown Sheep Nature Spun. Can't decide yet which gauge I like better--the midgauge or standard. I plan to try to use Jaquard Textile Paints on the 3 stitch dividers in the design. We'll see. Could be a disaster. Will post pictures if it's presentable.
