Revisit a past F/O
Bring the fortune and life of a past finished project up to the present. Document the current state and use of an object you have knitted or crocheted, whether it is the hat your sister wears to school almost every day, or a pair of socks you wore until they were full of hole. Or maybe that jumper that your did just didn’t like that much…
Remember the crate pad I made Gretchen for her birthday?
I had taken a photo, but for whatever reason, it got lost. (I think that was the last “I didn’t put the memory card back in the camera” event?) At any rate, these otherwise darling fur-girls destroyed it this winter, and you’ll just have to take my word for it. There were broken bits of yarn everywhere. It surprised me a good bit, because Mugsy loved his snuggle and seemed to know not to scratch and dig in it. In fact, he was buried with it.
I’m rather sure Gretchen’s tiny paws and claws didn’t ruin the snuggle, but I also know that both girls root and dig in their blankies, so for now, we’re sticking with store-bought hand-me downs that the humans have worn out already. (Or soon, cotton blankies from the human bed that have also been destroyed by the same crazy routine.) I was disappointed, but dogs will be dogs. No more crocheted crate pads for these two for a long while!
In other news, Sissy and I are headed out to visit Wondervet again. I’ll update the girls’ blog (link will appear once I post), but it’s more of the same with Sis’s on-going food allergies and the Dadaw who says “a little bite won’t hurt.”
If bobby pins would work in her fur, I’d have Sis wear this to the vet’s today!
