Default excited

I am really excited my cousin is a student at UNCAsheville. and Her women's history class is doing an installation about feminist activism and art and she asked me to crochet and 18x18 sq. for it and my boyfriend wants me to teach him how to crochet so we can have a hobby together.

but I am going to kill our great dane Daisy. My Boyfriend went and bought me several skeins of yarn for some new projects and we went to pick up my daughter when we came home she had ripped open 3 skeins of yarn one of which she made into a giant knot that I'm have to untangle. It was all I could do not to beat her with the yarn.

Beating a great dane with a knot of yarn, is like trying to kill an elephant by throwing cotton balls at it

I'm impressed that your boyfriend wants to learn so he can have a hobby with you!

Maybe you can start by teaching him how to untangle yarn!

Sorry about the mess Dew. That's why we don't have any animals. Besides, I have the Boss.

Good gravy! I sincerely hope he is better than the Boss! I give him a skien last night because I'm rolling it up in a big ball, and the crazy hammer knocker says it has a knot and starts tighting/stretching it! I say, "NO!!! Stop!! Gimmee that." He sits there with a grin on his face and told me that I asked him to help.

Sounds like something i would do just to see the look on my wife's face, so i'm guessing he did it for the same reason ? lol

How exciting! And your boyfriend must be a sweetie to want to want to have a hobby together.

Yeah he really is sweet, and once he gets the basics down he will be able to look at something and tell me how it was done so I can do it.
