The Juno Collar

DSC03512
I decided that the best solution to the cabled edge on Juno's collar was to follow the suggestion of the commenter and add a selvedge stitch to the inner edge of the collar. I frogged the few rows I had and restarted with an extra stitch. This means that there is an extra stitch on the outside of the small edge cable on the inside of the collar and not on the outside (which I totally could have compensated for if I had been thinking, or if I wanted to start a third time, but I didn't), but I think that since I'm working in black, it will just disappear and not be noticeable unless I point it out.

So far I've worked a little more than 3 repeats of the cable pattern and it's really going pretty quickly. I will probably just keep going on this (which means lots of blogging of black cabled stuff) until I get it finished because I'd really like to get Juno all done and wearable.

In doggy news, Finn and Barclay have become delinquents. We came home one day (Mom and Dad are back in town now) and found that they had dumped out the kitchen trash and chewed stuff up and made a big mess. The next day they got a loaf of bread off the counter and ate the entire thing (1-1/2 pounds of whole wheat - yeah that was fun). We've decided that Barclay is the brains behind the operation (Finn has never done stupid puppy stuff and he just isn't smart enough to carry out this kind of nefarious plot) and Finn is his henchmen - Barclay couldn't reach the bread on the counter - he's too short. Our suspicions were confirmed when we put Finn in his crate the next time we left and Barclay got into the trash again all by himself. Who knew such a cute little Sheltie dog was an evil genius?

Cute Sheltie=evilness personified.

What... you didn't learn that in algebra class? I sure did -- only the breed was Alaskan Malamute.

Any smart creature (and a sheltie qualifies) without a directed outlet is trouble looking for a place to happen. Um, you have a young son, do you not? I rest my case. ;-)

I just had to laugh at your dog's escapades. When the largest of my Standard Poodles was going through his terrible two's he actually stole a loaf of bread off the top of the refrigerator and ate the entire loaf all by himself. Even now I have to put a doggie barrier blocking off the kitchen as they have mastered opening the refrigerator and any of the cupboards & drawers. You have a smart dog too!
