Because I got one of my WIPs (that being Mel) off the needles and into the FO list, I resumed work on the kitty bed that I haven’t touched since I last mentioned it in my blog, about two weeks ago. I worked on it yesterday evening, and every time I put it down to attend to other things, Lucy picked it up. Hopefully, she’ll be as happy with it once it’s completed and felted.
Kathy in Mpls asked if Lucy was taking a break in her training schedule. Kathy, she’s back on track — see?
After seeing the photo, below, of her competition, she jumped back into her regimen with renewed . . . um . . . vigor?
This is Shelley’s Miss Kitty who is clearly also in training.
Marnie was the first of several of you who identified the quote in yesterday’s blog entry as being from Wallace & Gromit: A Grand Day Out.
(I’m in agreement with the commenters who said “A Close Shave” was their favorite W&G film. How could I not love Shaun the Sheep?)
I remembered hearing something about a W&G feature film, and Becca mentioned it in the comments, so I did some Googling and came up The Wallace & Gromit Movie: Curse of the Wererabbit — here’s the movie website. Here is the main Wallace & Gromit website. According to these sites, the movie will be in theaters in the U.S. in October.
I wonder if the wererabbit is any relation (a descendant, perhaps?) of the killer rabbit from Monty Python and the Holy Grail?
After taking some time out this weekend to complete Mel, I’m back plugging away on Deli. Here’s the back:
Once the kitty bed is done, I’ll be down to one project on the needles. I may have to break down and cast on something. I do have the lovely La Luz I bought a couple of weeks ago at Knit Happens.
I think it’s time to give some thought about what that might become. I’ve got the germ of an idea that I need to consider further before I decide whether it’s good and worth pursuing or lame and deserves to die. It’s a fine line.
