NY Times & Knitting

I realized I had this post saved as a draft since July and never shared it! Oops. I thought this was a pretty cool article in the NY Times this summer, How to Start Knitting and Learn to Love it, and thought I should pass it along. I also want to pass along these two images.

Jellybean in a banana shirt, you’re welcome. This dog loves bananas so much and as quietly as my husband tries to peel them she always hears him and comes running to get a piece. She also managed to get a banana out of his lunchbox one evening, wiggle it out of the bag, take it out of the skin an eat the ENTIRE BANANA. This one is my sneaky little eater.

And Cher. My sweet senior has taken over a blanket that was a gift for me. Clearly it has my name on it but whenever I turn around she’s wrapped herself up in a sea of blue softness. This weekend we’ve got more light rain coming our way in Maryland (we aren’t in the path of the hurricane but it’s been grey here all week) and I’m hoping to work on my Rainbow Tecumseh. And yesterday I finished off my Rainbow Askews Me Shawl! It’s blocking and hopefully I can get some pics and share it next week. Have a great weekend!

  1. I love the pics of your pups! FYI – Bean is smelling the banana! Dogs sense of smell is a thousand times more sensitive than humans. As an example, you might walk into a house and know that vegetable soup was cooking. The dog could tell you every vegetable that was in the soup. Amazing!

  2. THANK YOU!!! Those pictures and that banana anecdote made my day.

  3. My Sophie dog also loves bananas. She is less neat about it and will just swallow them whole so I have to make sure I leave them out of her reach. I love your anecdotes and seeing your pictures. Knitting content also interesting ;).

  4. Woohhooo!!! You’ve got a fall colored shawl just in time for the change in temps! AWESOME!!! Love that Mandala, it’s great, right?!

  5. Precious babies! How are they adjusting to your new schedule? Do they like having a full time professor for a mom?

    1. Now they never like when I leave! I’m out all day Monday and Wednesday and the rest of the week we hang ☺️

      1. Haha! I’ll bet they loooove the hangin days!! 😉
