Chewy Influencer

 This month, we tried some canine products on behalf of Mr. Rupert here.

This is a probiotic to sprinkle on your dog's food.  It promotes digestive health.  Rupert was having none of it.  He's a little old man, after all (17 in June), and set in his ways.  He took less than a full sniff and turned his head away.

For a second, it looked like we were going to have better luck with this
It's another "meal mixer," and Rupert sniffed and sniffed at it, took a tiny nibble, sniffed some more, and --- again with the head turn.  The fact that it is to be mixed in with his food may have thrown him off;  I'm going to go back to it in a couple of days and try to give it to him on its own.

So, Meal Mixer Superblends gets a hesitant "maybe," and the FortiFlora gets a "no."

I receive products from each month to review.  These are the honest accounts of my experiences,  No money exchanges hands at any point.


  1. Rupert isn't about to be fooled! :-)

  2. This is why I love Chewy for sending us trial products. I dont have to waste good yarn money on things the cats won't eat. :)

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"?  


Hooray;  baby giraffe has arrived! Next to his parents, he looks almost like a toy, but when you put him next to anything else, you realize his size.  He's already taller than me: 5'9".
There's a naming contest for him.  I submitted "Reveille," as his arrival trumpeted us all awake yesterday.  That came to me as I was tumbling names around in my head.  His sire's name is Oliver, which, backward --- revilo --- brought Reveille to mind.
Babies are also front and center knitting-wise.  Two people in my orbit are expecting --- one having a boy, the other a girl.  I'm going with basics just now --- burp cloths, wash cloths, etc.  There's a little time yet in both pregnancies, so there's time to decide on the fancier things.  This is my first knitwear model, now waiting to be a big brother.  Time does fly.
