The luxury life of Leo

Sometime last night, I wandered upstairs to open bedroom windows to help air out the house. Once up there, I got sidetracked when I wandered into my yarn room. The first thing I found was another long abandoned project and I swear, it called to me. So while I still mean to get back to the Icelandic sweater, and I will, I think the Moderne Log Cabin Blanket needs a little attention first.

Leo may not agree. Apparently he likes to lay his head on silky wool. He fell asleep with his head on several cakes of yarn and stayed that way for hours tonight. I'd give anything to be able to sleep like that...not on pillows of yarn, but for several hours straight.

You know, adopting this dog may be the single best decision I've made in the past couple of years. He's brought us nonstop entertainment since he joined our little pack. Given his history with my fiber, I'm not so sure my decision to let him rest his head on my yarn is very wise, but it is charming.

Leo does look adorable. But I do remember his history with yarn.

I've always said, when I die if I have to come back, I want to be some knitter's very pampered pet.

My grandmother wanted to come back as one of my cats.

He is simply gorgeous. What a face.

I, too, wish I could sleep like that.

He is a cutie. I'm hoping to sleep through the night in the near future. I'd been waking up every two hours before the surgery.

Definitely one of those 'a-a-w-w' photos. Animal family members are very important for our mental health. Leo proves that. And he has great taste in yarns.

They do warm our hearts don't they...he is a sweetie. You are the fastest knitter I know!

Leo knows quality when he sees it...or lies on it! How nice of him to keep you entertained.

I LOVE this picture of Leo.. I'm glad, for your sake, that he is NOT a long hair dog.. Barney (my collie) would do that.. AND leave a pound of hair behind.....
