Mom has taken up a new hobby/handicraft. She, with the help of the internet and a couple of Dogster pals, has learned to crochet. She finds it relaxing and addictive.
Any hobby or craft around here is bound to wind up with some pet hair incorporated into it. She has pulled black dog hair out of her current afghan project. There are gray cat hairs finding their way into the design too. But this afternoon when I jumped up on Mom's left side while she crocheted, she didn't mind at all. Did you know that Schnauzers don't shed? Well, we don't. So Mom wasn't concerned with me adding white hair to the yarn as she worked.
She even covered me up with the afghan. It is warm, soft and very cozy.
On a scale of one to ten, I give it a ten on the comfort factor. And no white Schnauzer hair was crocheted into the work.
My Momma has always wanted to learn how to knit but she's never had the time and she tried to use the interwebs once to learn and she got overwhelmed. Maybe someday she says...I'm happy to snuggle with her and her Snuggie!
What a lucky pup you are to have a Mom that crochets. I love those afghans, they are very comfortable and I would give them a ten too!
I wuv blankies! That afghan sounds really comfy. mmm
