My current work in progress:

Seaforth designed by Alice Starmore, knit in British Breeds 5-ply Guernsey Wool on US 3 needles.


Rebel Without a Clue

It amused me no end when I found out this morning that yesterday was No Cats Day on the internet. And what did I do yesterday? I did a blog post that was contained numerous photos of Lucy and nothing else.

No I am not a rebel. I am merely clueless.

So, some progress pix. The True Love Stole:


And the as-yet un-named sock:


Ribbing has commenced!

Thanks, by the way, for all the music suggestions you have submitted so far. Of course there are many of them that I already have, but there are also a bunch that make me think “Doh! I forgot all about that one!” I am compiling a list of must-haves so that when my iTunes gift card arrives, I’ll be ready to start a-downloading.

Today is Thursday, right? I am toddling off to NYC this weekend and won’t be back til late on Sunday, so don’t look for a blog post from me before Monday. I’ll announce the pattern winners in my music-themed giveaway then.

And have a great weekend, okay?

Lucy sez:


“Catnip party at my place this weekend. Bring your own mouse.”

  6. No cats day??? Nope. Not in my book. I like the Lucy updates along with the knitting updates; keep ’em coming!

  7. So nice that you posted about Lucy on a “no cats” day! You’re MY kinda gal! 😀
    .-= Claudia´s last blog .."in the pink" is not always a good thing! =-.

  8. Have a great trip and weekend! Onward with my Panda Silk socks, love the feel of the yarn, just bought some more today, geez, like I don’t already have enough to work up! Anyhow, have a great weekend!

  9. A no cat day!? omg, It’s always cat day here! Lucy looks like she is already in the planning ( but I’m so cute) stage, lol.
    The shawl is beautiful…… stay safe.

  10. WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD MAKE A “NO CAT DAY”? Is that even American? I have never been owned by a cat, but I still want to hear all about them. No cat day, YEAH RIGHT!!!!

    Oh, by the way, your shawl is beautiful. AND, I love the socks.

  11. There will never be a catless day on the internet. Never! Purrrrrr!
    .-= Hissy Stitch´s last blog ..Did anyone ask the cats for their opinion? =-.

  12. I so covet the socks – the color and pattern are fabulous.

  13. Wendy,
    Have you decided how long your stole will be?
    .-= Ida´s last blog ..Color? Color? You Want Me to do Color? Part 1 =-.

  14. Everytime I see this sock in progress I am reminded that I need to get some of that madeleine tosh yarn. It’s just a wonderful super saturated color (and that shade is perfect for my green loving friend).
    .-= Seanna Lea´s last blog’d never believe it =-.

  15. No cats day? That isn’t right. A day without a picture of Lucy is not a good day at all.

  16. Have a good time! Love the socks and the sock color! And of course Lucy.
    .-= vicki´s last blog ..Knitter’s on the runways…. =-.

  17. Sounds like a good way to get lots of people to post more cat photos!

  18. No cats day? That’s like No oxygen day!!

    I really like your shawl and am looking forward to your pattern.

    Did you know that Romi ( has a most loverly “Designs By Tomi” shawl pin? I can just see that lovely pin on your sweet shawl!!


  19. Forgot to add… she’s having a “sneaky sale”!!!

  20. Song suggestion: Jethro Tull “…and the Mouse Police Never Sleeps” on the Heavy Horses Album – great cat song.

    Funny about No Cats Day. I did the same thing as Debbie. I posted a picture of my cat Lucy on my Facebook page. 😀 In my world every day is Cat Day.
