The work in progress, it grows!
I have done one set of decreases, which reduces the total stitch count by 24, so the rows are not quite as long as before. I am coming up on the second set of decreases in a few rows, so I am looking forward to that!
The Random Number Generator chose Ruthie to receive my copy of Baby Washcloths & Afghan Squares. Thanks to everyone who left a comment! I have another great book to review and give away, probably on Wednesday.
There are questions about Loki in the comments from time to time. Time for some Loki info!
In the almost-three-months since he came to live with me, Loki has changed a lot. His coat has filled in quite a bit and has gotten longer and softer. He looks like a little cream puff.
Don’t be fooled. He is built like a little tank! Underneath all that floof he is one sturdy, solid little guy. He weighs more than twice what Lucy weighed.
There was a question in the comments about his temperament and personality and the differences between boy kitties and girl kitties. The general idea is that neutered male kitties are more sweet and affectionate than females, and I think that is often true. Lucy did not fit that mold, though. She was sweet and friendly to one and all. My female kitty I had before Lucy (Izzy) wasn’t — she had a bit of a snotty attitude and was more how I usually expected female cats to behave.
Loki is a sweet goofy little guy. He is extremely affectionate and loves to be held and cuddled. He is also rambunctious and has boundless energy. He does not jump up on the couch and curl up next to me — he hurls himself at me. He throws himself into play and loves interactive toys. I don’t think it is possible to wear him out — I never have. But at night when I turn out the lights he knows it is time to go to sleep and has learned not to try to wake me up with a toy. He’s a smart little guy.
Oh, and of course he is adorable.
