Chef Knitterie has returned and his service for today is a platter of "Orso Di Compleanno." He's back with a vengence, too...right away he's showing off his language skills.

Why is it that I can't capture true colors?! A price we pay for fast photos! It does actually match the rug! I do so hope that he likes it and decides that living in a box isn't the best option!
