A Mystery

I found this when I got up this morning. It had been on the coffee table, and didn't have crunchy knots attached to it when I went to bed last night.














I'm pretty sure this is the culprit:

She doesn't even try to look angelic! She has lived with us for about a year and a half, since someone abandoned her at the end of our road. In all that time, she has shown no interest in knitting. Never once asked for lessons. She did snatch a wad of roving and try to run off with it once, though,with the other end of it still attached to the spinning wheel.

A couple of nights ago, however, she hopped up into my lap and tried to sample the ball of yarn I was knitting from (Manos del Uruguay). So I carefully put all of that yarn away before I went to bed. I never thought she'd try to knit socks. I guess I should be glad she didn't find any needles. It would be hard to work them without opposable thumbs, so I'm sure teeth would have been employed, and the needles just wouldn't have survived, I'm afraid. Posted by Picasa

Anybody want to guess who "princess" is? Hint: read some other entries in my blog! She's off at college (hasn't even been gone a week, and we've talked every day) and missing her dog.

She looks perfectly innocent to me ;o)

Well, I guess it could've been worse. The yarn could've been attached to a sock, and frogged in the dog-process. Small comfort. (Cute dog, though!)

I just love 4 legged creatures with attitudes and I think Sheri is right, it could have been much much worse.
