Today, Valentines Day, is Lucy’s official birthday. All we know is that she was born in February 2001, so we designated a birthday about halfway through the month: February 14. The day seemed appropriate.
Lucy got prezzies, of course.
Um, that would be a catnip mouse knitted from Lornas Laces Angel. In the Black Watch colorway.
The King of All Remote Controls gave her this extremely cute mouse.
Lucy has enjoyed carrying it around — it’s small enough to fit nicely in her mouth.
And her Auntie L-B and her boyfriend Lucky sent her this adorable catnip sheep:
(P.S. to Lucky: Lucy says yes, of course she’ll be your Valentine!)
A couple of you asked if Lucy “talks” while on bird patrol. Surprisingly, no, not too much. She’s the first cat I’ve ever know who does not always chatter at the sight of a bird.
She also races to the window and stares outside if she hears an airplane or helicopter going overhead. I sometimes wonder if she things they are just really big birds.

In the “Is My Head Ever Gonna Get Swelled” department, thank you so much for all the great comments about Rose. She cleans up good, considering the nightmare that is her damned yarn.
No modelling shots — sorry. But a couple of close-ups.
The sleeve cuff.
There was a question about how long it took me to knit — I consulted my archives and found that I started it on January 16. So a bit less than a month.
What’s next? I started something using these yarns:
Can you guess what it is? Phyl, you can’t guess cuz you already know!
I decided to upgrade my phone and ordered this:
Seeing the Razr that belongs to someone up close and personal last Friday pushed me over the edge. I can only hope it gets here soon. I need to buy a purse and shoes to match. Heh.
Happy Valentines Day!
