First off, my new shawl pattern pictured in my last post, the Vernal Equinox Shawl, is now available for sale in my Ravelry Store.
Second, I am well into a new shawl:
This is another new design knit from the bottom up — my new favorite shawl construction. I am using Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light in the Oceana colorway. Like my last 2 shawls, I cast on with a U.S. size 8 needle and then switched to a U.S. size 5 to knit.
Third, donations from sales of the Japanese Garden Shawl are now just over $3800!
Fourth, Lucy has a new toy:
This toy was recommended to me (thanks, Susan!) so I immediately ordered one for the Little Princess. It’s the Bolt Interactive Pet Laser Toy and it is available from ThinkGeek here.
You can set it to emit random laser beams that continue for 15 minutes (or you can use it in manual mode). The beam bounces off an adjustable mirror within the toy so there is no danger of your kitty eyeballing the source of the beam directly.
Here you can see Lucy trying to figure it out:
Note that her beloved fuzzy rat is not far from the action.
Lucy gives the Bolt Interactive Pet Laser Toy two paws up!
