SWEATER

I'm working on a very time-consuming sweater these days. Size 4 needles, sportweight yarn, lots of little stitches. About 42,000 of them so far, and that's only the back and half of the front. At five minutes per row, 312 rows so far, that's about 26 hours of knitting put into the sweater. That's two and a half seasons of Dallas. And I'm only halfway done.

With that said, if you walked into the living room and found the dog munching away at your sweater, wouldn't you try to hit him with a loaf of mozzarella bread too?

(I don't think he did anything I can't fix. Luckily he was chewing at the armhole, so I'm sure I can hide that bit. Oooh, was I mad though. And now I have teeth marks all over my needles.)

1 I don't know what's worse, a dog chewing your WIP or a child "helping" you by taking a WIP off the needles to wind it up "because the ball of yarn was almost finished". (:

2 I certainly can't fault you for trying to hit him with a loaf of bread. I laughed when I read it. When I was your age, (over 40 years ago!), I got mad at my husband and threw my glasses at him. We both had to laugh at it. Crazy kids.

3 I'm giggling here in commiseration. I once had a dog who thought the whole world was there to chew. She chewed the knobs and molding off my armoire, the plugs off of two heaters and one fan, both the front and back screen doors, shredded pillows and comforters, chewed to pieces I can't tell you how many books, dug up and chewed the entire irrigation system in the front and back and both side yards, chewed off the arms, legs and rockers of a wooden rocking chair I had on the porch, and I'm know there's more but I'm having a purposeful mental block at the moment. LOL

4 Are you counting stitches? lol How come you don't use these "round needles"? It's faster and you don't have to connect front and back; it's one piece. Gosh, it's almost 11 pm here in Denver and I don't know if I'm making any sense... I'm working on a sweater for my son, size 5 needles - goes fast, cause he is only 5 :-)
