This photo should give you a very strong hint about what the rare, precious, and beautiful fiber in yesterday’s blog entry is.
Yes, it is 100% Lucy-fur, spun by the extremely talented L-B.
And you can see from the photo that Lucy was intensely interested in it.
We had some discussion about what I should make from it. I think it’ll become a catnip mouse for Lucy. That oughta freak her out, huh?
We also discussed the possibility of offering it for auction on eBay. Considering the source, Lucy the Glamour-Puss, the bidding ought to go high enough for me to pay off my mortgage, don’t you think? And of course give L-B a cut for doing the spinning.
And then there was the suggestion that I shave Miss Lucy. I said if I were to do that, I’d have to knit her a sweater from her own fur.
Yes, I think a Lucy-fur catnip mouse is what it will become.
And congratulations to Clare in the UK for being the first person to send me the correct answers to both parts of the question. Rare Precious & Beautiful (Volumes 1 & 2) were albums by the BeeGees — very early work, released in 1968, I believe. Before a bunch of you were born. Ahem.
What I Bought at Knit Happens
Ten skeins of Noro Blossom, color #6. Mwha-ha-ha!
I plan to use it to make Eloise, from the new Jane Ellison Noro book.
Thanks to everyone who commented or emailed me advice about spindles. Stay tuned . . .

The sky is still blue here, by the way.
I’m still knitting on Butterfly.
And Lucy is still cute.
