My husband and I took off Sputnik’s cone, ZenTube, and bandages off yesterday. He was nekked for little bit, but we did put his regular collar back on him, of course. Cone-free doggie, at last! Since the cone has come off, he’s once again curious about yarn, but there’s improvement.
I inadvertently used natural fibers around him, a soft merino superwash . It was from a Zauberball actually. He had no problem with it. Then I took out an alpaca blend that I am knitting a simple shawl with, and we were a little curious about that. After a firm correction and praise, I was able to knit.
I know there are still going to be times when he thinks yarn is a toy. He’s young, and will be seven months old tomorrow. Still, knitting around Sputnik is getting better.
