First things first, thanks to everyone who left a comment to be entered in the yarn bowl giveaway sponsored by StardustPottery. The random number generator has spoken and has chosen Julia, who has an email addy that ends in earthlink.net. Julia has been emailed so if this sounds like you, check your email!
Lucy thanks you for all your good wishes on the anniversary of her having come to live with me. In celebration, here is the first photo I ever posted of her, on May 12, 2003:
Look at how light-colored her body fur is. She was 2 years old at the time I adopted her (so she is 12 now) and her coat darkened in the first year after she came to live with me.
I am finishing up the second prototype for my upcoming Summer Mystery Shawl this evening, so will be needing a new project.
Here’s the yarn I plan to use:
This is a natural colored China silk that I purchased from Handknitting.com. You can see it here.
(Do you know about Handknitting.com? They have some great yarns at very good prices.)
I am going to do something lacy with this yarn. Stay tuned.
In other news, I am going to Camp Loopy this summer! How about you?
