I bet that title caught your eye...heehee! Ok, I will admit it I am a knitting snob. I can honestly say that have not touched a crochet hook since the late 70's. I know, I know...hard to believe but true. Shhh...don't tell anyone.
Come a little closer and I will tell you a little story..................
With a big show just weeks away, finally, finally, those lovely ears were growing nice and thick.......nosiree, no more puppy ears for this little lady. ....those ears were showing the promise of good things to come in a show career.
Nope..............it was the little Muffin herself. Now this little muffin is almost always with me, but one day while I was busy dyeing yarn and going in and out of the house hanging skeins, I had put her in her crate for some quiet time. This way I wouldn't have to worry about her scooting out the door. Did she have a toy in there to chew? Why yes she did......but for some reason on this day, she decided that she needed a little more fiber in her diet.....sigh.
Well, when little girls chew on their ears, they get to wear a thing called a snood. Silly word for a silly hood. Normally I put one on the girls when they are eating to keep their ears out of their food, but this little miss is wearing one whenever she chews anything.....toys, treats, etc.
See what looks like a jumbled mess to the right? Colorful isn't it? This is one of my favorite snoods. Cleo's breeder sent home with her when she was a wee one and another one with little Miss Skyy. I like the crocheted mesh as it makes it hard for the dogs to get off.
Every now and then though the little muffin will manage to get it off and the last time she did, why that big girl Maggie grabbed it right out of her crate. It seems that Maggie needs a little fiber in her diet as well.
So..........as the story goes, because I love these snoods so, I broke down, bought a beginners learn to crochet book to refresh this aging memory, some fixation yarn that Julia just happened to be destashing and a hook. The little bag was a practice project..... Voila! It appears that I am hooking once again.....but sshhhh....don't tell anyone.
