Look at what she has chosen for her bed.
Yes, that’s my big Booga Bag she is lying on. And has been for the past few days.
Please note also that I have folded up a towel and slipped it under the bag for extra padding for her.
Oh no, Lucy is not spoiled.
Now I have to make her a felted Kureyon cat bed, I guess.
In answer to Cat’s comment, she has gotten her winter coat! She’s definitely put on weight since I got her, but I think she’s still a bit underweight for her size. She is a big kitty!
Although I fiddled around and did a few other things, I did get some knitting done yesterday, and I finished the front of Fern. See?
Fern is surprisingly enjoyable to knit — there’s enough going on in the pattern to keep me entertained. And I love the yarn. I wound a bunch more of it into balls yesterday. I love my electric ball winder.
Multidirectional Diagonal Scarf
As promised, here is the pic:
Karen, if you happen to stop by and read this, let me congratulate you on a great pattern! And anyone reading this, if you need a quickie Christmas gift, this is it! You can knit it in fat yarn on fat needles and it goes real fast. I’m making mine in Kureyon, as you can see, on US size 8 needles. The link to Karen’s pattern is in my sidebar.
Mine is a gift, but I’m not saying who for.
Thanks for all your kind comments about Amphora. I’m wearing it to work today.
Judith asked yesterday:
What is the penalty for falling off the Yarn Diet?
Hmmmm . . . I say whatever you buy, you have to send me half, as a penalty. Hee hee hee.
Did you make anything with your Arucania yet? I’m curious to see it as I started my Arucania scarf this weekend (in olive).
No I haven’t — but I’ve got some Arucania earmarked for felted Bucket Hats (from Bonne Marie’s most excellent pattern).
Linda M. asked:
Do you find the Hebridean yarn (VY) the same to knit with for FIs as the J&S yarns? Some people feel that the Hebridean is more “springy” and different to work with. Any thoughts?
The Hebridean 2-ply is a tad thicker than J&S jumperweight. It’s also softer than shetland and, as you said, “springy.” It’s totally yummy to knit! I loved using it for Amphora. I’ve also used it for Glenesk and Roscalie, and loved knitting with it then.
The Nebridean 3-ply is also lovely. Great stitch definition!
Okay guys. I have a late meeting today, so there won’t be much knitting progress to report tomorrow. Sigh.
