Bad Dog

It finally happened.  Sputnik, my almost nine month old puppy, got into my one knitting storage chest and got at a skein of Lopi Einband yarn that I needed to use on my Faroese shawl that I work from time to time.  Bad dog. I can understand why Sputnik went after it:  it’s wool!  It […]

Cone-free Doggie

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 […]
