Episode # 28 (Me & My Sister & Her Dog)

22 Jun

Meet my sister Kit and her new service dog, Lexi! Lexi is a diabetic service dog, which Kit acquired from Service Dogs by Warren Retrievers. Her dog is about 9 months old now and has been living with Kit and her family since April 2014. These service dogs are amazing! Lexi alerted Kit of a “low” in her blood sugar the very first day she arrived! Good dog Lexi! Kit is still raising funds for her dog and if you would like to make a small donation, it would greatly be appreciated! Thanks so much for helping!

This week has been super busy and there hasn’t been a lot of knitting going on, but I did want to film to show you the little bit that I have knitted. I’m still working on yarn bombing my sewing bench, my husband’s vanilla socks and the shawl for my sister. There are no finished objects this week, but I do give out a prize. Good luck on the prize and thanks for watching!
