Yoda Overload and Farm View


Almost the same view as the header, I prefer the header.

Yoda testing his new sweater for comfort in going potty.

I have been unable to find a coat for him.

He has very strange measurements.

I gave up the search and made a sweater out of two socks.

Seymour, checking out the new threads.

This mismatched, stretched out pair of socks has found a new purpose.

I had on all the clothes I could wear.

I was only half as cute as Yoda.
See what pleasure we can find in throwaways?
The socks and the dog.

What a great idea. I love this. Yoda looks adorable and very warm.

Breathe said...

That's a terrific outfit! Let me know if you need more socks. :)

Yoda is so precious and the socks seem to be just perfect!

Rudee said...

You must not know any knitters...

BTW, you have more snow than I do in Detroit. I prefer your header photo also.

What an adorable use of an old sock. Yoda seems to be enjoying both the sweater and the snow!

Have a great day!

I had a St. Bernard once who hated the snow. I guess I should have made him a coat but I don't know where I would have got enough socks.
I also prefer the header picture.

The picture of Yoda and Seymour is priceless. How could anyone not love that little face? What a great way to recycle socks.

I love your summer header, too!

I'm still trying to figure out what Yoda is. He's little - I'm thinkin' a little Yorkie, maybe a little Pom or a little Chihuahua. He's so cute!

You should show us all how to make a sock sweater. I need one for my chihuahua! She is freezing and the last one (and only one I bought her) she hates and rolls it off against the couch!

You are so inventive. I love that ideal And you are too cute. I was expecting to see your flip flops. lol. That would have been a fun picture too. Have a great day.

I wish my dog would fit in socks. The problem would be easily solved. Maybe I can cut down a sweater for him. Cute idea!

That is ONE. CUTE. DOG! ! ! No, they are two cute dogs. Great photos and a great idea for the coat Gail. I must remember that in future, although we never get snow here in Melbourne.

That's a great idea, socks for sweater. If you have a minute go look at my sisters Mastiff. Musings from Fairlight (my blog list) She made it out of a vest I think. So tell Yoda even big dogs get coats.

Cool (well warm) sweater Chip is very jealous ;-)

I am so mad at myself because when I was watching some show on Animal Planet the other day, there was a breed of dog that looked EXACTLY like Yoda! I said to my daughter, "My blog buddy has a rescue dog just like that! I have to tell her." And I can't remember what they said it was! Wah!

Thank you so much for the cards and for the Bible! So pretty! I'm sending my mom a card. She's very sick in the hospital and I'm sure it will cheer her up to see something so beautiful that someone actually made!

Yoda is pretty cute in those socks..works perfect! I enjoy the green header also!:)

Heart of a Cowgirl said...

Yoda is just too darn cute. And the sock idea -- brilliant!

Pat said...

So does this mean you want all our old, stretched out socks so Yoda can have a whole wardrobe? LOL!

And, by the way, thanks for that photo of Yoda peeing. Yeah. Just great. Made me think of that wise saying, "DON'T EAT YELLOW SNOW."
