Happy Mother’s Day

Today is not only Mother’s Day, but it is “Lucy Day.” It was five years ago today that this little bundle of sweetness/nuttiness came to live with me.


Lucy and I are celebrating quietly at home. ๐Ÿ™‚

I have a completed sock:


This is the sock knit from the colorway to be named later from the Sanguine Gryphon. How is it that I am knitting from an unnamed colorway? I’ve created this design for Gryphon – it will eventually be available for sale in the Sanguine Gryphon shop.


In other news . . .

I was lucky enough to win a prize in the recent Ravelraiser event. I won a zipped pouch from Splityarn. I love Caro’s zipped pouches and fun stitchmarkers.

Here is the pouch I just received as my Ravelraiser prize:


I recently purchased a couple of pouches from Caro in a fun houndstooth check:


As you can see, all of them coordinate beautifully with my latest purse acquisition.


Lucy sez:


“Momma is too busy playing with me to post a long blog post today. Happy Mother’s Day!”


  1. I love that sock. I am totally smitten. Promise you’ll let us know when it’s available, because I must have the pattern!!

    Happy Gotcha Day, Lucy! ๐Ÿ™‚

    steven and meredith say: “we appreciate our mommy rescuing us too! so we bought her chocolates and chick books and chick flicks.”

    “now if she would only leave the treat bag open continuously for us…”

    our kitties DO love us, don’t they? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. And Happy Mother’s Day to you, too! Lucy is a lucky little lady. The new sock and unnamed colorway are gorgeous. I love the “greeny-ness” of it.

    Happy Lucy/Wendy day. I remember when you got her, can’t believe it’s been five years. She still wasn’t healed from her surgery, was she? The two of you are very special people. It’s good you have each other. ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Yup, that’s a cute kitty!

  13. Oh, happy Lucy Day! How auspicious that it falls on Mothers’ Day this year. We all know you’re her mom – that’s for sure.

    I can’t remember the exact day Perry P defected from my next door neighbor to live with us but she’s made our lives happier to the nth degree.

    Lucy and Perry are each cuties – may you have many more happy years together.

  14. LOVE that purse. I’ve been looking for one just like it. Would you mind telling me what brand it is? Thank you!

  17. Happy Lucy Day!! Loving your latest sock. I bought some more Sanguine Gryphon at MDSW – can’t wait to try it out – perhaps I’ll use it on this pattern when it becomes available. : )

  18. Happy Mothers Day Wendy, Lucy you sure are one lucky gal to have a mom like you have. Now I wouldn’t bet that you’re not spoiled. It’s ok, you’re just to cute not to spoil. Love the socks and the colorway. My baby Hobbs is suffering from a bilateral cruciate ruptured ligament. He has to have complete rest for a month and medication. The alternative is surgery at $4000. So we are really babying him.

  19. Happy Lucy Day, and may you both have many, many more!

  20. What a lucky kitty!! And what a lucky mommy are you!

    Balls of fur always deserve good mommies!

  21. Happy Mom Day (and Cat-Dog-etc Mom Day) to Wendy and all of Wendy Knits readers!

    My kitties know who “mom” is although I believe they may refer to me as the “food lady”.

    Lucky Lucy, you have such a wonderful mom ! May you and Mom have many, many, many more Cat Mom Days to celebrate!

    Mickie – I am sending healing thoughts to Hobbs-kitty. I hope he gets better much, much soon.


  22. Happy Lucy day!

    And I hope your mom had a nice Mother’s day. : )

    I don’t want to attract spammers, but did you realize that your new purse has br**sts? Or at least n**ples! The purse is really great (awesome fabric), and when in use, I’m sure this wouldn’t have struck me, but something about the buttons shining away in the photo could not be ignored.
    I love the little bags!

    Happy Lucy Day (a day late). Lucy, I hope you got your momma something nice for Mother’s Day. Wildside Salmon is always a nice gift, especially when Mom shares it with those she loves. ๐Ÿ˜‰
