This is Hank. He is my constant companion, my loyal little buddy. He is a terrier mutt of unknown origin that we got at the pound about two years ago. Hank is wierd. He is a picky eater (only dog I've ever met who doesn't like hotdogs!) and he lays along the back of the couch, behind my head, while I'm knitting or watching tv. He follows me wherever I go throughout the day and takes up residence on the sofa in my studio while I am working. He sleeps on my feet at night.

Hank is named for the "Hank the Cowdog" series of books by John R. Erickson. They are a favorite of kids and adults alike in this house. Like his namesake, my Hank truly believes that he is the Head of Ranch Security on this farm and there is little that goes on without his knowledge and say so. He has been known to chase a chicken, or two, and to get himself into totally undeserved trouble now and then and he is always on some mission or other, for the good of the farm.

January's theme for Phat Fiber is "For the Love of Books". So, in honor of that theme and in appreciation for Good Buddies everywhere, I created these batts.

"Hank, the Cowdog" 4 ounces total. Hemp, bamboo, and silk. A lovely coppery, rosey, brown-tan and heaven to touch. Available in our shop now.
