No one tell Aslan that Trevor climbed onto the chair with him. Aslan does not like Trevor. Trevor likes everyone (for at least 15 seconds, and then it's anyone's guess) and so is constantly trying to get closer to Aslan. He only succeeds when Aslan is asleep. If you're lucky to be in the room when Aslan wakes up and first sees Trevor near him, you'll be gifted with a gasp from Aslan that sounds as though an entire movie theatre full of people had just discovered the butler didn't actually do it.

In slightly less furry news, this arrived for me in the mail yesterday.

It's a treat, but it's also smart, because the kit doesn't include the yarn for the bag (just the felting-fiber for the sheep) so it's a stash-buster project. I have some wool from Carodan Farms that has been meant to become a felted bag since the first KR Retreat, but hasn't made it there yet, but this little felted sheep may just push me over the edge into finally using it. I'm even thinking I'll "personalize" the bag, and possibly shoot to have it done by MD S&W. We'll see if that has any hope of happening, or if I start it May 3rd.

Also there is the sheep needle gauge that I've been coveting for sometime. It's lovely, although I shouldn't have checked the needle size on my Aslan-the sock. I don't know how I'll ever get the second sock done, now that I know I knit the first one on 000.

000. Was I insane? (Don't answer that) What kind of idiot would do a pair of socks on 000 without even knowing it? (Again, I think the answer speaks for itself.)

Anyway, this is probably a good time to tell you that I'm ripping back the St. Patrick's sock, again. I realized last night that as I was modifying the cable from the pattern I was kinda using, I missed something fairly obvious that would make the whole think look much better defined. So I'm ripping it, but I'm doing the whole thing again, except for two stitches difference.

But otherwise, the masses have spoken, and I think I'll be going with choice A for the cable, so thanks for the votes!

(and thank you to my most adorable husband, who bought me my birthday baklava last night, a mere 3 months late)

You've got to love the ways cats interact. Duchess will sit side by side with Baron at the food bowl, but he can't come anywhere near her on the bed. Hissing, spitting and swatting that follow scare me!

That kit is too cool! I can't wait to see your work :)

Socks on 000? Oy
