Today’s blog entry is brought to you by the color PINK.
“Photoshop is evil. Photoshop is evil. Photoshop is evil. Little longhaired daschunds should not be allowed to use Photoshop.”
Speaking of Lucy . . .
I notice that Fancy Feast now comes in delicious kibble. Has Lucy tried it yet. That white Persian with the green eyes eats it out of a crystal goblet, and seems to enjoy it.
Shirley, we got some last weekend to give to her as treats. She loves it! And it’s funny, she’s gone off the canned Fancy Feast just recently. She flat-out refused it last night, so I’ve stopped giving it to her. She eats as her “main” food Artemis dry cat food, but I give her Science Diet Dental Formula and now the Fancy Feast kibble as “side dishes.”
Lucy gives it all “two paws up.”
In an effort to distract your attention away from Lucy’s humiliation, here is a photo of the left front of Deli:
And I’ve started the right front.
But not all is pink. For this arrived in the mail yesterday:
This is qivuit roving. I purchased it from the ebay store Mountain Shadow Ranch. I hesitate to spin it, fearing that I’ll screw it up.
What do you think about using cotton cashmere for a lace project? I am working on the flower basket shawl from IK and was thinking of knitting another for summer evenings in a cotton blend. What are your opinions on cotton for
lace? Specifically lace that is not knit using microscopic needles
I’ve used Debbie Bliss Cotton Cashmere for two sweaters: my Lucy and Luanne designs. Lucy has a lace edging and Luanne has an all-over eyelet pattern. I loved using the Cotton Cashmere for both of these sweaters. It blocks beautifully and the lace looks fabulous.
Now I’m trying to decide what to knit after Deli, which is currently the only project I have on the needles. (I finished knitting the kitty bed Tuesday night.) I’ve got some yummy La Luz that’s calling out to be knit, but I have several other alluring things as well: for example, Cashcotton 4-ply to knit Fruity (sans beads) as a couple of knitters across the pond are doing.
Have a good weekend!
