This comment from Kate made me laugh:
Wendy, I’m sure that neither Lucy nor the landlord would mind if you got yourself a small herd of Pygora goats. A little plot of grass in the corner of the kitchen, a little fenced in area in the bathroom…taking them for walks of an evening. I have a vision of you walking them on totally charming knitted leads every evening after work!
Wouldn’t that be fun? However, while I don’t have a landlord, I’m quite sure that Lucy would object. Besides, I live in a condo on the tenth floor of a high-rise in the city, and I’m almost positive we are not zoned for goats. Even cute little ones.
But they do look like dear little things!
Here, just for grins, is the website for the Pygora Breeders Association.
Here’s a bigger photo of my current work in progress, which I have named the Woodland Shawl.
It will be a triangular shawl (my favorite type to wear), and the top section is a shetland leaf pattern. It will have a border of what will resemble (to some extent) trees, and then a knitted on edging.
This is the first time I’ve used Helen’s Laces yarn and I do love it. It’s 50/50 wool silk and it’s very soft, but has that wonderfully crunchy texture that only silk can give. I am now interested in trying Jaggerspun Zephyr to see it it’s similar. It crossed my mind to wonder if it’s the same yarn — anyone know?
Here’s a photo I snapped of Miss Lucy this morning. She is the Mighty Huntress, lording it over her prey: the Cursed Emery Board!
