An Update on Golden Boy

I know that a number of you are fraught with worry about Golden Boy so I figured it was time to post an update on his condition.

Golden Boy is doing surprisingly well. In fact, he’s happier and peppier than he has been in lo these many years.

You see, Golden Boy now has a harem.

A harem of barrel row counters that actually work!

These stitch counters were sent to me by Tiny Tyrant and Amelia. Thanks to these ladies, Golden Boy has friends and helpmates to ease him along his journey. So y’all can relax and not worry about him

  3. I never really was a fan of LOLcat – perhaps you are converting me! I also can’t believe the number of designs you manage to make. I’m trying to become a designer myself and I long for the days when I can work like you!

  17. My question is: Why are pets believed to spell so badly?

  18. Our versions of golden boy have an additional obstacle to overcome, other than normal wear & tear – they have to elude the jaws of the dreaded Andrew Eugene(the one relaxing in my blog header). He LOVES the counters – they are his most favorite things ever!
