Parker Stevenson Can't Lose

This afternoon I gave Pasha to my friend Alex during her dissertation defense dry run. She was very pleased and renamed him Parker Stevenson, which I think is just dandy. Parker Stevenson had an excellent time dressing up like a rock star and drinking a Diet Coke:

Afterwards I made a quick Target run, where I saw their new line of learn to knit kits. Whatever--the patterns are a little tragic and the yarns are cheapy-cheap, but I'm all for people learning how to knit, so more power to them, except for this one:

Let's leave to the side for a second the issue that it is incredibly dangerous for dogs to eat string (it can wrap around their intestines and kill them) and focus on the main problem here: Do you really want to teach your dog that it is right and good and fun to chew on knitted things? I have enough problems getting Bailey not to eat my needles.

P.S. Ashley to Time Change: You Suck.

I wholeheartedly agree about this time change debacle! I feel like I lost a whole afternoon.

OMG! I, too, took my camera to Target and photographed the most god-ugly baby layette kit I have ever seen. But I forgot my cam cord today and can't download it. whooops. I *love* Target, and I am also pro-knit-for-the-masses, but please! some taste, folks! LOL

Time change, pshaw.

You are so right about dogs and strings. Both of my dogs have had emergency intestinal surgery to remove strings (NOT yarn, thank goodness). Ka-ching, ka-ching, and the older dog nearly died. No yarn for dogs!
