Knit, Bloom, Mew

Started adding coloured rows onto the circular shawl.

Ordered some yarn and the Stitch n' Bitch book to make some knee high socks! Thanks Shannah, for the pointer and for showing me your Irish Nacho socks too!

We continue to have new orchid blossoms open! It is amazing!

A new addition - we were given her at the flea market in Huntingdon this morning. We had talked about the possibility of getting a kitten last week, when they 'sold out' before we found them. She had a fuzzier calico sister that was very jumpy, and a sweet little orange brother.

She doesn't have a name yet. Any suggestions? She is very sweet and remarkably good natured and calm, considering the number of dogs here. However, she is also active, playing and exploring the house tentatively. She has met half the gang without incident and is currently fast asleep in my lap having kitten dreams. Mouse grumbled at me and stalked away as if to say 'I was just getting you trained as my human, and now you bring this kitten in? *grumble grumble*' Kelba guarded her in the car while we were in WalMart, so she thinks it is her kitten to watch over when we aren't paying attention to her, maybe.


Very sweet stripes and markings.

She sounds like a self-possessed little kitty. Maybe name her Dharma? (I have a cat named Karma. She's self-possessed and insane.)

Note: She is extremely observant! She sits and watches everything we do as if we are the most interesting thing around.

OMG! So cute! I'm bad at kitty names....she looks like a little wild cat.
