Better Late. . .

I let time get away from me this month with regard to my commitment to Chewy.  It dawned on me one day recently that I hadn't gotten my e-mail for selecting the samples I wanted to try.  One e-mail later, that was corrected, and yesterday, a box was delivered to my doorstep.

First up, Hill's Science Diet dental dog chews.
Rupert has very bad breath.  Rupert also has never been a treats sort of dog, but I was hoping to kill both birds here.

The bag I was sent was for medium-sized dogs, so I had to carve out little pieces for him to try.  He sniffed at a piece, but refused it.  An utter strikeout.  Fortunately, my daughter's housemates have a dog that these can be passed along to.

Secondly, Gourmet Carnivore cat food.
As thoroughly as Rupert disliked the dental chews, the two cats here who eat canned food dove into this.  They (Lily and Erin) are both gravy lovers;  they will lick the gravy from their food first, then eat the pieces.  And this food has all kinds of gravy.  They were in Feline Heaven.  Another winner!

Chewy allows me to receive free samples of its products each month in return for honest reviews of what I receive.  There is no remuneration whatsoever.


  1. I was wondering about the Science Diet treats. Everyone at our house acts like Greenies products have crack in them, and inhale them. I wondered if SD had the same effect. Maybe not ...

  2. I didn't try to dental treats. My cats think Beachside crunch is crack.

  3. You frogged the shrug? So sorry to hear that your cables were misbehaving! Love this cowl though and am going to check out the pattern right now!

  4. Hmmmm, I thought my post was on your cowl post. Sorry!

Cold Shoulders

There were 589 stitches!  They were the beginning of this: It's the Superior Waves Shawl from Willow Yarns.  This is one of the kits Kathy was asking about the other day.
Speaking of which, here are this week's questions: Sure sign of Springs: bugs.  Has anything bitten you yet? No, though the carpenter bees are back flying around the bench on the front porch. Do you knit for practice?  I don't mean for gauge;  for a stitch pattern? If I have, I don't remember. Have you tried One Touch Latte for your coffee? Not a coffee drinker. Have you seen or tried Persi laundry detergent? I'd never heard of it 'til now. When was the last time you wore one of your own handknits? Over the weekend --- some socks made from Noro.
If the waves shawl weren't keeping me busy enough, I'm also working on 28's Cousin 53.  I'm making it out of yarn that will turn purple when I wear it in the sun. What will they think of next?


Yesterday would have been my mother's 88th birthday.  I don't say that looking for sympathy --- it's just that the arithmetic surprised me.  Then I realized that next year, my husband would have been 70.  That is hard to get my mind around.
The shades-of-blue feather and fan shawl (the 589-stitcher) had to go into the "Maybe Another Day" file.  Somewhere along the way, I lost the pattern stitch and couldn't fix it without frogging way, way back.  It's irritated me to no end, but there really wasn't anything else to do.
Something occurred to me the other day.  If this is already being done, I didn't know, so I'm not trying to steal anyone's thunder.  You know those cake/cocoa/cookie mixes in a jar? Why couldn't that be done with yarn "cakes"?  


I have been awake since 10 AM yesterday.  I have no idea why.  It resulted in lots, lots of knitting getting done overnight.  It has also resulted in my being alternately punchy and goofy.  What a day to have a therapy appointment.  At least I had the good sense to wear pretty boots:
There is all kinds of nervous conversation here about some possible snowflakes falling Friday or Saturday.  I have to go to the grocery store tomorrow anyway;  as long as there are a couple of gallons of milk in stock, things will be good here.
