Wheelie Wednesday - My New Sweater

Hi everybody! It's me, Autumn!

I spent my days in the gardens and my nights knitting while mom, dad, Maggie and Mitch were on Nantucket! I rumaged through mom's wool trunk and found lots of red yarn and a little bit of green too so I thought that a Christmas sweater would be a perfect choice!

And now to try it on and see how it fits!

hummmmmmmm the neckline is a little bit large and my flower petal hat really doesn't look appropriate with a sweater! I think I'll need to knit a wool cap to match!

What do you think, Maggie? Does the pullover look okay or should I have knit the cardigan pattern instead?
I'm getting the idea that you don't like it! Oh well! I did have a good time knitting it! Maybe it will fit one of my friends better than it fits me!

You have to see this tomato that I discovered in the garden yesterday! It looks like fat wings, doesn't it?!

Dad's friend, Jan, gave us these seeds a few years back! They're heirloom tomatoes that Jan calls Father Lou, after the man who shared seeds with her! It's a plum-like tomato, not too juicy and it makes the best fresh tomato sauce!

I guess by now everyone has heard that I spazzed when I heard about Mango's wheelie brother, Hector being dognapped and then listed on ebay to go to the highest bidder!

We did hear back from Detective Joe Stains and he seems to think that it's a cloning matter! We do intend to rescue Hector-Farley and have an in-depth conversation and find out exactly who he is and where he came from! I'll keep you updated on this front for sure!

See you all next Wednesday!

Love, Autumn


  1. That's a really pretty sweater you knitted yourself Autumn. Pinky Winky and Bluey Wooey can't knit at all.
    Yeah I think you should find out more about this Hector clone..

  2. You are right, Autumn, we need to know lots more about the Hector cloning incident. We love your sweater! What a strange tomato! You're lucky you still have some...ours are all but done for!

  7. M&M -
    I just checked and Hector is where he is supposed to be. Do you think they stole his DNA when he had his agility accident last winter?

  11. I really like your sweater. A nice wool cap and scarf would pull the outfit together brilliantly.

    Good thing Joe Stains is on the job and you guys can get to the bottom of this whole Hector-gate scandal once and for all.

  12. Gosh, Autumn you are excellent knitter, maybe you could start a cottage industry knitting for Wheelies!
    Bailey's interested...

  13. I think your hat looks great with that sweater. What a wonderful talent you have, knitting and all. Those tomatoes look like boobs. snicker snicker.....

  14. Hi Autumn!
    I like that sweater! It looks very nice on you. :)
    Love Clover xo
    P.S. Mitch - congrats on graduating to an upstairs bed!

  15. You made a lovely sweater. Grammie wishes she could knit as well as you.
    Our tomatoes are still coming on and we have had many good size bowls of them already.
    I hope you find out all the poo on that Hector look a like.

  16. Woof,

    That is a very pretty sweater. You must be very talented to knit a sweater like that. And it fits perfectly.

    We want to go on vacation with you, you look like you have so much fun.

  17. lol..thats funny your daddy thought the same thing I did.. My daddy said, "put those things away" and then he giggled. hehe

  18. Ok,well we happen to love the sweater and hat (our Mom is pathetic,she doesn't know how to knit) And, we are glad Joe got to the bottom of this. we hope to hear more once he gets there ad you can question him.
    About the tomatoes...apparently we weren't the first to have female human anatomy leap to mind!!!(High fives Deetz and your daddy) Sorry.
    I guess if we look at it right, we'll see some wings.....

  19. I like your sweater! I think it will keep you very warm this winter.

  20. Hehe , nice sweater ! yeaps . I sure have the longest tongue . but still cannot go for world record ! laughing*


  21. G'day Autumn

    I just thought you went on vacation to Nantucket too!

    The sweater looks great :-)



  22. your sweater is divine! I must say though, I would much rather have those gorgeous tomatoes, the ones we get here don't have any flavor!!

    I am getting kind of afraid about this wheelie revolution...

  23. How clever. We wonder whether our newcomers will have equivalent talents or whether they'll just want to live on the fat of the land and do nothibg!!!

    Who knows???

  24. Autumn,

    What a lovely sweater...and the petal hat looks good too...yes we will be waiting to hear all about the cloning business....we have a bunch of tomatoes around here but nothin' like that one....the pla nts look sick but they're still full of tomatoes....

    Dewey Dewster here....

  25. I love the new sweater you knitted, Autumn! It looks good on you! The flower hat looks so cute too!

    That tomato looks so nice as wings on your back..maybe you should keep them like a fairy wheelie. *wink*

    Can't wait to hear what Hector-Farley says when you rescue him...=)


  26. I love the red sweater! You look like a lil doggie angel with the plum red tomatoes on ypur back!

  36. Hector...CLONED???

    Oh my...I hope NOBODY ever steals and clones Scruffy's DNA....yeesch...what r ya gonna do? An evil twin, huh? I don't think any part of Sweet Hector can be evil? Maybe PeeWee sold him to irritate Mango???

    Your sweater is bootiful,Autumn...I hope you can find the correct hat pattern!!!

    Nobody's very crafty here...well, maybe Scruffman!

  37. Hi, Autumn -

    You are very talented making that sweater and hat. Those tomatoes look yummy but we think they could be Mick Jagger's lips (HA HA!)

    Love -

    Hershey and Kaci

  38. Oooo... the sweater is nice. My MaMa's scarf will go well with the sweater!

    I don't know about the hat though. Can U see wearing it?!

  39. We think the sweater suits you fine. You can keep it for cold season.
