Dogs on Thursday

It's a new month, so you all know what that means...time to choose another yarn from the tote for this month's Brown Bag Sock Yarn. Since Emma normally does the honors, I offered her first crack at it, but she was too tired to get up off of the sofa. No problem, I brought the tote to her.


She didn't like the orange tote in her favorite snuggling spot, so I took the bags out of the tote.

Nope, she still didn't like the bags invading her space, so I put them on the doggy bed behind the sofa.

That was better, since she got to curl up in her favorite spot, but she was just too stressed out from having the bags invading her space to be able to help choose a bag of yarn. At this point, I called Cooper and Tara in to offer a hand, but it was a pretty hot day, and no one really wanted to work up the energy it would take to make a decision.

Just as I was contemplating breaking out a jar of peanut butter to smear all over the bags, Tara stepped up to the plate.
She choose Sockotta from Plymouth Yarns (ravelry link).
Good girl, Tara! Thanks for your help.

I love them all staring at the bags. Maybe you need to knit them something to keep up the interest level.

That's pretty yarn. Good job, Tara.

That's really funny! And I do believe that's the same yarn I used for a cute pair of anklets a couple of years ago...

Too funny!!! At least Tara picked a pretty blue!

I love sockotta. I am a few months behind in the brown bag club. Just got too caught up in doing other things. The bags are still there, waiting for me when I get back to them after I clear some socks off the needles.

Of course, I have to choose my own bags, my cats can't be bothered.

Funny how they will explore and tear things when we don't want them too... :-)

That's very cute. What happens if you finish those socks before the end of the month? g

Too funny! They are such great helpers though. You may still be waiting if they were bassets....

Well, isn't it fortunate that someone made the difficult choice for you! Silly you, thinking an orange tote is an acceptable item to place in the napping spot!

Just the thing for a hot day, soothing blue.

Love the pic with all three of them - they really do look too exhausted to make a decision, lol!

YAY another great yarn pic!

Such demanding owners we are... in this heat ;) Glad they finally felt up to such hard work. ;)
