Yarn Chewer?

We have a new addition to our family: Marco the Westie. He is the cutest, sweetest puppy you'll ever see! He's 10 weeks old and totally has us wrapped around his little paw:

"Bamboo knitting needles? I thought they were chewy toys!"

A friend wondered if he would fit in my knitting bag. I said that he probably would, but I didn't think the contents would fair well as he is in the chewing stage. The horror of chewed yarn!

We'll, I'm all ready to hunker down and knit this weekend. While I'm not participating in the Knitting Olympics, I am planning to watch the games and knit. I'm also having a group of friends over to watch the Olympics so I'm going to miss the KIP event in Savannah. I'm trying to finish my cowl project as winter has finally decided to show up here.

Go Team USA!

And, and, and, ....

Have you ever listened to a child talk? I mean really listened. They use the word 'and' over and over again.

"We were playing and she was running and I started to run and she told me to stop and I told her to be quiet and ..."


"What if we put a rope in the tree and then tied a box to it and then climb the rope and then used the box to bring stuff up and ..."

So here's to the word 'and.' Long may it reign in the lives of the young and not so young!
