That's my excuse for not making more progress on my most pressing knitting project. To be accurate, the dog didn't eat my knitting. He just made a big mess of it.
It was a busy weekend, and I had finally given myself permission to do a little knitting. When I went to get my project, I found my ball of yarn in a tangle.
Benji is my daughter's dog, but he's been on an extended stay at my house. For the most part he's a good dog - fun and lovable. He brings a certain liveliness to the household dynamics. I don't know what got into him over the weekend, but clearly we weren't giving him enough attention.
I guess I should consider myself fortunate that he didn't destroy what was already on the needles. As you can see I made an attempt to start untangling from the other end, but it was late and the yarn was a dark color. Need I say more?
The situation was compounded by losing an hour on Saturday night and spending way too much time on paperwork and taxes. I was in no condition to untangle, so I turned my attention elsewhere.
There's nothing like a soothing sock project to take the edge off. This heel flap is ready to be turned. That untangling job might have to wait a little bit longer.
