"Welcome to my house!" says Sherlock, "Come on in!" Well, he doesn't actually say that. In fact, Sherlock doesn't like visitors. He would rather be left to his own devices to explore the bathtub...
and play in the doll furniture...
Watson continues to be shy and to hide amongst the stuffed animals. When he's sleeping in a pile with the toy lions, he's almost indistinguishable. It's pretty hilarious. But he has been coming out more and more when I get out the dinner. So I have hope that my feral kitties will eventually be tame.
I'm on a domestic streak right now and along with painting the upstairs rooms, I'm making blankets. One you've seen - the Miss Marple's Shawl from Piecework magazine - and it's almost finished, though I had to order a 3rd skein of Blue Moon Fiber Arts Marine Silk. This might make it the most expensive item I've ever knit.
But the second....you saw the beginning of in my last post: The Socks That Rock Granny Square quilt:
It really is a song of praise to Blue Moon's Socks That Rock. From bottom to top, left to right, the colours are:
Cosy, Fierce, Scummy Girl
Love in Idleness
On Blueberry Hill
Since then, I've added more. A couple of favorites...Kelped
and Cosy, Fierce Scummy Girl
I also love River Rocked and would like to do a whole baby quilt just with that. I guess I'm having a love affair with Blue Moon yarns. Some people would say that yarns can't reciprocate the love, but I'm here to tell you you're wrong. So, so wrong.
