Crochet Swaps Bring Dog Treats

We have been complaining that Mom spends too much time with her crochet hooks. In fact, she started to use Bailey as a crochet pattern holder when he wanted to snuggle with her on the couch and she was working on a project. However, we have discovered something cool about crocheting. Some swap partners send dog treats and toys.

Mom is involved in a group that does themed crochet swaps. She completed her first one and her first box arrived. We were very excited and Mom could not understand why as all she could smell is cinnamon, which she loves. We however, immediately sensed there was more to this package than yarn, crochet hooks, potpourri and candles. There was the delightful smell of dog treats. We were even more amazed to find a cool Frisbee that doubles as our new favorite tug toy. This one is Katy sized and she constantly fights to get it back. Mom is not sure what it is about this toy that she is so attached to, but she is thrilled that Katy is showing some interest in holding on to something when I try to steal everything. (You should have seen my toy pile yesterday.)

So perhaps this crocheting thing is not so bad after all.


  1. What a neat idea! Plus, it is always fun getting packages in the mail.

  2. Oh yea I just LOVE getting boxes with stuffs in the mail!

    woos, Tessa

  3. What a cute post!! Who would have thought that a couple of treats and toys could make crocheting enjoyable for the whole family :)

  4. I definitely think you have found a good reason to love crochet!

  5. I am finally getting around to reading older blog posts. Wow that sounds cool that you got toys in the box too! Mommy doesn't know how to crochet -- she tried and couldn't figure it out at all, her technique was all wrong. Mommy said Grandma kept telling her to put her pinky finger up to crochet -- Mommy thought that was so painful to keep putting her pinky finger up, it was making her whole hand hurt, so she gave up. Be thankful your Mommy knows how to crochet and you even got bonus toys too out of it. Very nice!
