Capable of learning complex things.....
Has this blog ever given you the impression that I am capable of learning complex knit things? About the most complex this knitter gets is fair isle. Right now, life has other complexities for me! So my knitting will remain in my comfort zone.....(or zzzzzzzz for some of you!) I am casting on for a new project tonight. It is very straighforward, and I am making a prototype.
The last time I did this, I knit a sweater in "cheap" yarn and it is the thing people love the most when I wear it. (Top down raglan
cardi) Hoping I'm two for two.
We have had a couple of training breakthroughs with Mr. Cricket this week. Our very smart trainer (because it is so very much
me who needs the training!) solved a mouthy problem in a word "Listerine" I now rinse my hands in Listerine when he gets mouthy. He only needed one taste to keep his sweet little mouth closed. I also wipe it on the leash so the tug games have ended.
So here in Listerineland Cricket is fulfilling the trainers words to me at class, "Cricket is smart. He is capable of learning complex commands." Here he is after he figured out how to get 3 suckers out of the gumball machine on the porch. Perhaps he can knit.......Thank heaveans for Bully sticks to chew on.
I talk more in the comments!
