Slobbery Demise


We've gathered here today to say goodbye to a hand-knitted item whose life ended too soon. Cabled Purse, (pictured above on the right before assembly with it's good friends, the girly scarf and the Irish Hiking scarf), was completed in February of 2006 and met it's end on June 11, 2006.

Cabled Purse led a good life. It was useful as all knitted items hope to be. It carries Brianne's wallet and Owen's Hot Wheels cars with pride. Many of you may not know this, but Cabled Purse was also a bit of an adventurer and traveled with Brianne to San Diego. How could we have known that it was there that Cabled Purse would lose it's battle with a certain mother-in-law's Golden Retreiver who wasn't supposed to be in the guest room but still got in? It fought valiantly until the end, but proved to be no match for a 40 pound dog.

Farewell, Cabled Purse.

Awww. I hope the golden had fun at least. So sad about the purse. It looks really cute.

I'm sure she did. I just wish she at least would have spared the bamboo handles that I loved! I could have used them to to the reincarnation of Cabled Purse. Alas, no such luck.

Oy! Bye bye, Cabled Purse! But it seems that it still did a good deed right before passing away: Giving a Golden Retriever a lot of fun!? :)

Rest in peace, Cabled Purse. May you go to the land of your Father, that Great Knitting Store in the sky.
