I am having problems with my cat. She insists on sleeping on the bed and she sheds her fur all over it. What can I do?
Flummoxed by Felines
Do what I do:
Match your bed to your cat.
Last night I put chocolate brown sheets on the bed and a light tan duvet cover on my comforter.
It probably won’t surprise you to hear that stuffing a comforter inside a duvet cover assisted by an enthusiastically determined cat is a challenge. Lucy loves the new duvet cover — it’s “microsuede” and very soft. After I got it on the bed she rolled on it for a good half hour.
I’m sure she thinks I got it for her.
The left front of Dew is progressing nicely. I like the lace at the front edge — very pretty!
While sometimes, yes, I do knit with my eyes closed, I can’t knit this edge sight unseen.
Yvonne asked how the Kidsilk Haze feels — is it scratchy?
I don’t think it’s at all scratchy — the silk content in the yarn gives it a soft . . . uh . . . silky feel. It even feels soft to me when I rub it against my face (arguably the most sensitive skin in the universe).
And I actually did a bit of knitting on my qiviut scarf — see?
I think I’ll leave Dew at home tomorrow and take the qiviut for commuter knitting.
From the Comments
Judith asked if I’ll be going to Rhinebeck this year. The answer is, sadly, no.
About iTunes, Kathy mentioned that she likes to create music mixes. Boy, does that bring back memories. I still have some of the mix tapes I made in the 80s — on cassettes, of course!
MJ (whose Flower Basket Shawl is fabulous, by the way) sent the link to this very interesting article about the iPod nano. She also says:
I download the knitcasts and podcasts of favorite shows (NPR and KCRW) and listen to those. You can also backup important stuff, like your BOOK, in case something ever happens, god forbid, to your computer.
Good point about using the pod as a backup device — that’s another handy use for it. I have a tiny USB flash drive that I keep in my purse — that’s my backup device. While I was writing my book I felt more secure having the back-up with me at all times. (The book is now at the publisher, about to go into production, by the way, so I think it’s safe. Still, I have a copy on my flash drive!)
