This and that...

Well, I suffered a terminally fried motherboard. Gotta hate that stuff. At least it explains why I've also been having all sorts of little breakdowns the past weeks. So now I can catch you up a little bit on what I've been doing.


The beginnings of an Orenburg style shawl. When I knit lace, it's really a process thing rather than goal oriented. I love the engineering involved in an Orenburg. I also love the Merino yarn and I HATE knitting on big needles. So this is in 2 ply Henry's Attic Merino laceweight on size 1 needles. I am so liking this!




Evidence that my Blue Eyed White fuzzy lop doe Keshare is extremely strange. With the cold winter approaching, I brought my 9 year old pet mini lop Radar back in the house. 'Share decided that a buck in the house means that she needs a nestbox. All she had handy was a toilet paper tube so she made do. Desperate? maybe....




My new lap-warmer. This is Furball. Yeah, I know. Not the most original of names but I "thought" she was just one of the barn kittens. Little did I know she would end up being a very special part of the family. She's about 4 months old, has 'furry' not long fur, she is completely unphased by the kitten-eating dog, and loves the rabbits. So far she's a very good kitten. When confronted with a new challenge, Furball has a unique way of attacking it; she purrs at it. Loud and aggressive purring...that will scare away the big loud things. Oh, she also catches mice.
