And I understand that Jen sent along some catnip mice that Liz’s kitties are very generously going to share with Lucy. Thank you Jen!
There are three more fabbo prizes on the prize page!
How are the mice from last year’s Mouse-A-Thon selling? I imagine you received enough to keep Capital Animal Care well-stocked for a least a few months more.
I’m not sure how many they have left. I know they were big sellers for Christmas gifts. Next time I see Barbara, I’ll ask.
I have a question about the ladders with dpn’s. You said you pull the first stitch very tight on each needle. Do you rotate the beginning stitch on the needle every few rows? I have a sock making video that shows this technique, but it makes me confused to try to knit one stitch on to a needle, then pick up another needle, etc.
Nope, I don’t rotate, and I have no problems with ladders. That would confuse me way too much!
On my monitor, the colors in your Flora look very muted. Is this how they appear in person? I was not enthralled with the colors I saw when I looked on the Virtual Yarns website, but I like yours much better.
In yesterday’s entry, I’d say the colors in the close-up are pretty accurate. Though to be honest, I don’t see a whole lot of difference between mine and the photo at Virtualyarns.
I’m happily into the armhole steeks on this puppy. Unlike most (if not all) of the other Alice Starmore fair isles I’ve knitted, this has some armhole shaping — see?
We had a bit of uglyness over my new knitting bag. Lucy saw it sitting on the couch and of course thought it was a new kitty bed for her, so she made herself comfy.
The problem was that Flora was inside the bag while Lucy was making herself comfy. I removed Her Highness from the bag and she was Not Amused. She said some things, I said some things.
But we’ve forgiven each other and all is sweetness and light again here at Wendyknits.
