I am so jealous right now, I can’t even see straight. Well actually, I’m cross-eyed, so I couldn’t see straight before, but that’s not the point!
I’m the one that keeps The Animator’s Wife company while she crochets. I’m the one that helps move the yarn along when it doesn’t want to come out of the skein. I’m the one that massages her shoulders when she’s been crocheting too long. Vinnie, on the other hand, The Dog We Don’t Like to Mention, is nothing but trouble when it comes to crochet projects. He hates it when The Animator’s Wife crochets. He would never do anything to destroy her projects, I don’t think, but whenever he sees her crocheting he always takes it upon himself to do everything he can to distract her and play tug-of-war.
So what does he get in return for this disruptive behavior? He gets to go with The Animator’s Wife and Brown-Eyed Girl to Knit Happens!
Of course, Osiris pointed out that the only way to get to Knit Happens would probably be in a car, and I really hate cars. The last time I was in a car I threw up all over myself. So if I had the choice, I probably wouldn’t go just for that reason. ...Still. I can’t believe The Dog got to go to the store and not me.
They did bring me back a gift though. The Animator’s Wife bought four skeins of a nice, stretchy yarn called Nashua Cilantro.
