On my mind, on my needles
Gift knitting is on my mind today. My friend Abby knit this hat. It is from the Itty Bitty baby hat book which I gave her for a milestone birthday! I love the sock yarn colors she used. She said she used size 6 or so needles to get her gauge and cast on 80 stitches. Adorable Abby.
Momma Cat went back to the shelter today. She's done. She was a marvelous momma cat. SO attentive. She grew her babies very well. She tolerated endless pestering the last week, for sure. Julianne, here's to your forever home. I sent her with her knitted blanket, from Grace. I wanted her to have familiar smells the next few days. She'll be spayed by weeks end and available for some lucky family to adopt. I am officially not a foster failure.....(which means I kept the foster. ) However, the two adorable kittens are here for a while yet. Not big enough to go through spay/neueter yet. We, this household and my neighbors' households, are enjoying the heck out of their cuteness and antics. Julianne, momma cat, you are on my mind!
Also On my mind: I missed Suicide prevention and Depression awareness day on monday. You were to draw a heart on your wrists for support. So I drew them on today. Depression is curable! hooray.
I am knitting more toast fingerless. This time with big sock yarn in a self patterning stockinette. Easy peasy.
I am planning the garden(s) for this year! I want to attract butterflies galore. I have Joe Pye Weed but I have never ever seen a butterfly go to them. What is your best plant for getting butterflies to visit your yard?
