Tuesdays With Tag - Bad Dogs, Bad Dogs, Watcha Gonna Do...

Brynwood Needleworks - Brynwood's Taggart (aka Tag)
Hi, Everybody!
Another week - another pack o' lies story to share with you.
Brynwood Needleworks - Tag Watching "Canine Cops"
We didn't watch the Green Bay Packers last weekend, 'cuz the stoopid Buccaneers were on our local station instead. We did watch a show called "Canine Cops", though, and I really liked it.

I was actually lyin' on my favorite futon when I heard some sort of screechin' comin' from the t & v. When I ran into the livin' room, I saw a German Shepherd carryin' on in the back of a cop car.

I thought he must have really done somethin' bad to get arrested, but Dad told me that it was a dog "earnin' an honest livin'". Real funny, Dad! Anyway, he said that dog was actually workin' for the policeman. His name (the dog, not the policeman) was Ranger.

I guess every time they're close to gettin' their paws on a bad guy, Ranger gets all mouthy and excited. It keeps the "perps" off guard and afraid he's gonna bite 'em.

In this case, the bad guy was a girl. She didn't try to run away or nothin', but she was in a lot of trouble for shootin' somebody. It was one of those grippin' story lines, and I just couldn't look away!

"Bad dogs, bad dogs, watcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna do with dey come for you?"

Speakin' of "bad dogs"....
Hey, Mom!
When's Bella Butt comin' back home?

"Not for about three more weeks, Tag."

WOW! How bad was she that she has to stay at Uncle Mike's so long?

"She wasn't bad, Tag. She's there to learn how to fetch birds like a champ."
"She'll be back home before you know it, but we'll go see her soon."
Brynwood Needleworks - Tag Watching For Bella
Well, I don't know how long three weeks is. I'm thinkin' it could be up any minute. I don't want that Black Dog thinkin' I actually missed her, but I wanna bark when she comes down the driveway, so I'd better keep an eye out for her.

I'm glad it's startin' to finally cool off. Mom and Dad leave the front door open in the mornin' until it gets too warm. That means I get to spend more time patrollin' the yard. Anyway, I'm gonna hang out here for now. Even if Bella Butt isn't right down the street, there's always a crow (or two) that I've gotta chase of my property!

I'll see you again in seven! 'til then...

There's No Such Thing As Bored At Brynwood...

Brynwood Needleworks - Socks Knitted With Lorna's Laces Yarn
I finished out the week with a pair of completed socks! Using Lorna's Laces yarn in a colorway called "Spring Forward", I knit up this pair with Christmas in mind.

I haven't decided who will receive them yet, but I know I'll be making more pairs between now and December. I'll choose "who gets what" closer to wrapping day.

For now, they're folded and packaged in my special cello bags to keep them safe and clean. I'll turn my thoughts to the next pair.
Brynwood Needleworks - Sock Yarns
I adore sock yarn and making socks. They're a simple, but warm gift to give to loved ones. The yarns come in so many different colorways and choices of fibers.

I pulled these three from my "sock yarn stash" (Yes. I have one of those, too.) so that I could set up the next pair for one of my portable projects.

The first two are Lorna's Laces' "Ice Storm", produced in January of 2008, so I've had it a while. The middle one is a sock weight from Rowan. It's made from a blend of merino wool, kid mohair, polymide and mulberry silk. The third one is another limited edition colorway. It's from a series they created for a Harry Potter line.

This particular colorway is "Hedwig", after Harry's owl. This is the yarn I decided to make up next. I already have it on my double pointed needles, and it will wait until I need a portable project again.
This week, here's what's on my plate: A custom order for another "Strawberry Blossom Strawberry Sachet"; a custom machine embroidery order for an embroidered framed mat; a vest for Handsome (He needs it for a gig tomorrow night, so I'll be making it today); more project totes (I'm selling them as fast as I list them in my Etsy shop! Thank you!!); finish a pineapple block table runner; and pack up more belongings for our eventual move.

Let me remind you...There's no such thing as bored at our house!
