Gone to the Dogs

I found myself in a strange position this morning. I went to my knitting group with the supplies to get started on that vest I mentioned in my last post. But turns out the yarn won't be here until Monday. No problem, I thought I'll just work on my socks. But I hadn't brought the socks. I was at my weekly knitting get-together with no knitting! I really didn't want to buy yarn to start something, so I concentrated on hanging out with dogs.

For most of the morning, I got to hold Alison's Maude on my lap. Maude is the awesomest Chihuahua on the face of the planet, right up there with Ren Hoek. She sat there patiently in my lap while I stroked her fur and pretended I was an evil genius. Maude wasn't really behind that plan, but she did leap into action when I dropped a few crumbs of Snowden's yummy key lime treat in my lap.

I also got to hang out with Hank, my favorite yarn store dog. He's getting heavy! But still oh so cute and lovable. I really enjoyed just listening to the conversation and hanging out with the canines. It was a good thing.

Speaking of Snowden, the knitwear design genius of the decidedly NOT evil variety, she's working on a little design and she's going to use ME for the example/model. I'm quite excited. Don't want to say too much because I don't now how much she wants to reveal at this point, but she'd like to make it out of this.

Great things in the works!


  1. The darker colors of that yarn certainly look like you!

  2. I've been eyeing that yarn for the last couple of days...I'll be very interested to know what you and she thinks of it.

  3. I am so impressed that you didn't just purchase some yarn to start knitting something. What great will power!

  4. Yes, Ren Hoek is the OTHER greatest chihuahua on earth! So funny.

  5. That yarn is really nice - can't wait to see what she designs...and how exciting you are the model!

    Hank is such a cutie!
