Okay... seriously... you all knew that the rest of my posts would probably include a picture of Aggie, right? lol. I'll try to control myself... right after this one:
That thing she's chewing on is the bed I knit for her. I used Wendy's cat bed pattern. You can't see a lot of it but it's obvious it didn't felt very well. It's knit with leftover Ballybrae from my Must Have Cardigan. The Ballybrae is one of those rustic mill-spun yarns with a lot of spinning oil in it. I washed this at least five times and you can see it's still pretty floppy and has a lot of stitch definition. It's nice though because I can wrap her up in it to go out to the bus stop in the morning and it gives her a place on the sofa to sleep. She thinks it's a tasty snack.
I won this little beauty on German ebay last night. It's from Holland. It should only take a couple of days to get here. I'm anxious to see how she spins. Didn't I just say about six months ago that I only needed one wheel? I figure it'll come in handy to teach if someone wants to learn.
Perfect timing because a little package arrived a few days ago from Nilda with 2 beautiful ounces of 50% Angora/50% Merino roving from Twin Ponds Fiber Farm. Thanks, Nilda!! You're too good to me. ;-)
Yesterday was the one-month mark from when we lost Leilani. My mother still has her good days and bad days as I'm sure she will for a long, long time, but she's healing and realizes that Leilani is finally at peace.
