I like to think of myself as a storyteller. Mostly I tell stories about knitting.

It was pretty outside last weekend and The Husband and I were lazing about under a tree soaking it all in Saturday. I’d taken my knitting out but it was lounging forgotten on the pattern amidst the green grass while I reclined on a football blanket…and Sydney was milling around sniffing for truffles or some such thing when I hear, “your yarn!” from The Husband. It seems Sydney had been eating a bit of grass and had mistaken my yarn for yummy blades. Thankfully, the yarn was not broken and appeared none the worse for wear other than being slimed. She had quickly realized that it did not taste like the salad she was after. I laughed and took it in to the house to soak that section in some water and eucalan. I ended up having to manually wipe the dog slobber off the yarn, but it held up perfectly. Toe decreases done Sunday with dry yarn.
Leafy Sock

Second sock is in progress.

I’ve almost finished reading Stephanie Pearl-McPhee Casts Off (a Yarn Harlot book). This one is fine, but is not my favorite. I recommend Knitting Rules or All Wound Up.

Ps. To see what other folks are working on, go check out Tami’s Amis and Small Things Yarn Along.

    Why do the dogs insist on eating grass? Mine did on the walk this morning and then immediately was sick. Dude, Stop Eating Grass.

    Your sock looks great! It sounds like the yarn will hold up quite well after being taste tested:)

    I love your socks! I want them! I am finally starting to get the knitting bug back…but I think it has a lot to do with the SNOW THAT WE CONTINUE TO GET (sad face).
