Revival!

The Clapotis not only survived the bloodbath, but came out with fantastic drape and evenly dropped stitches! It lost a good deal of it's bulky/rustic feel. It's overall feel & softness improved many times over, and the color is still pretty darn vibrant. It also grew 10" while blocking. Last night I wore it to the MN Knitter's Guild meeting and received a surprising number of compliments. There was an exciting Bohus sighting as well!





When I got home I popped Winged Migration into the DVD player. All I can say is WOW. Toby and Paco were completely fixated. They love squeeky sounds-- and, previously unknown, bird squaks, honks, and hollars! Looks like I should pick up a copy.
I wonder, has anyone gone to the point of ordering cable so that their pets could watch Animal Planet? Or, how about just taping National Geographic from PBS?

The Clapotis looks wonderful. It always scares me when they bleed that bad during soaking. I have this irrational fear that all the dye is going to rinse out. Silly huh?
Our dogs do that to, so funny. I sometimes type in free sound clips on line and play dogs barking, birds, and thunder. It's funny watching then try to figure out where it's coming from.

I dogsat Bauer once and he wasn't the least bit interested in Animal Planet, or any TV for that matter. I think the sounds do it for dogs more than the visuals- and not all AP or NGC shows have great sounds.

Today I came across a CD called 'Infant Calm', various tracks of appliance white noise for babies. Funny, and made me think of Paco vs. vacuum. :)

Clapotis came out beautiful. I was a little worried after the soaking but the colors are great.

Beautiful. Glad the bath left lots of color behind!!

My dogs don't really respond to TV noises - they are pretty boring...but, one little "meow" from outside and they are off like a shot...

The Clapotis came back beautifully! The only thing my dog hears off the TV is a doorbell, and then he barks his fool head off.
