Choosing March's Brown Bag Sock Yarn

Emma kindly offered to choose this month's selection from the Brown Bag Sock Yarn grab basket. In an effort to, well, have something to write about for this week's Dogs on Thursday post, I decided to document the process in photos.

1. Emma makes an initial overview of the offerings. This process is aided by Tara. Cooper, however, is a firm believer that "discretion is the better part of valor," decides that he is not needed in this process, and should leave it up to the girls.


2. Emma makes her initial selection.


3. Emma goes back to the basket, burrowing to the bottom to make sure she has reviewed each and every bag.


4. She then turns her full attention to "the chosen one" and rips into it like a monkey with a banana. 5. There is a brief period of "buyers remorse," in which she turns back to the basket and tries to get another bag out of the basket before it is swooped up by the big meanie (a.k.a. Mommy).
6. And here you have it - March's selection for the Brown Bag Sock Club, courtesy of Emma.

I just love your selection method. I let Fudge try it recently. It's pretty funny to watch how they go about it.

She chose pretty yarn. Look forward to seeing the finished socks.

Are you planting doggie treats in the skeins that you like best? ;)

No need for buyer's remorse, Emma. That's a gorgeous yarn you picked for your meanie mommy!

Emma has good taste in sock yarn.

What a brilliant method! I think it would only work with one of my dogs if I smeared the outside of the bags with different foodstuffs, however.

You totally crack me up. What a great idea!

I nominated you for a blog award...c'mon over.
