Lucy’s new favorite treat? Greenies.
Yesterday I got a box from L-B in the mail, and she included a packet of Feline Greenies (in the Ocean Fish flavor) for Miss Lucy. Miss Lucy almost took my arm off trying to get to them when I opened the packet. This from a fussy eater who generally picks daintily at treats and walks away.
After I deemed that she had had enough for one session, I put the Greenies away. Lucy spent two hours searching for them.
So, we’ll be keeping the Greenies in stock chez WendyKnits.
FO and WIP
Dew says thank you for all the nice things y’all said about her. If she could curtsy, she would.
So . . . what am I working on now? The Hourglass Sweater from Last Minute Knitted Gifts.
I have the body done up to the armholes and am embarking on the first sleeve. This is a very quick knit. I guess that’s why it’s in a book called Last Minute Knitted Gifts, huh? Duh.
Oh, and the yarn? I am making this out of Alchemy Synchronicity in colorway #36c. So very, very nice to knit. It’s a 50/50 wool/silk blend, and is pure luxury. To me, it feels more like silk than wool and what a treat to knit!
I purchased my Alchemy Synchronicity at Knit Happens when they got a big shipment in a couple of weeks ago. They got it in at the online store, too — just in case you want some.
It may be a bit rash of me to be making a sweater out of handpainted yarn. I know a lot of people have issues with how handpaints flash and pool and stripe and don’t stripe, and muddle and puddle. I have to confess . . . I kinda like it all.
It occurred to me that it would be more sensible to make a sweater out of a monochrome yarn. But why be sensible?
“Get the damned camera out of my face and give me more Greenies!”
