Back to work yesterday, and what a day it was. Lots of confusion and running around. It almost wasn’t worth having two days off last week. Almost. Hopefully things will be back to normal today.
And it’s pounding down rain this morning. Because we need more rain.
Cute Mouse-a-thon Photo of the Day
This adorable little kitty is Lucie, who lives with Katrin in Germany. I had to post her photo because she reminds me so much of Izzy.
And speaking of mice . . .
Yesterday’s mouse mail!
(No, I don’t use my stove for cooking, thank you very much. I consider it extra counter space. That’s why I got a smooth-top range.)
Lucy feigned indifference.
Yesterday was a great mouse mail day! Mousies received from Vanessa in Lake Placid, FL, Ingrid in Canada, Ruth in New York, NY, Kristen in Wood River Jt, RI, Kathy in Oceanside, CA, Zeila in Seattle, WA, Cheryl in Enterprise, AL, and Susan in Gallup, NM. Thanks to all of you!
I also received mousies from Kaori in Houston TX, some from Kaori personally, and some collected from several knitters in Japan — Yumi Ikarashi, Mikiko Shigeto, and Ayako Kudo. Thank you all!
I’m so excited by how many mice we’ve collected so far. I love the notes you enclose, and appreciate the extra catnip you’ve sent. And Lucy said to send her love and thanks for the tissue paper, treats, and toys.
I haven’t done too much work on this, but now that I’m back to commuting I’ll be back to my commuter knitting. So here it is:
Note my Yarn Cozy, the very cool holder for my ball of yarn. This was sent to me by Claire Staples, along with her mouse-a-thon mice. It’s perfect for your commuter knitting — keeps your yarn clean if you accidentally drop it on the train. If you’re interested in a yarn cosy, you can contact Claire.
Working away on the first sleeve . . . down to the cuff! Lucy has been supervising my cuff ribbing.
It’ll probably take me as long to knit the stinkin’ cuff as it did the whole sleeve!
