Okay, trying the strawberry shortcake tonight! I've been knitting with a lot of acrylic lately--mostly baby things, but fingerless mitts too. I love the soft look of the yarn she is using for the cowl!!

Congrats Lucy Lou! Have a wonderful little life filled with purrs.

Oh, my. goodness!!! That shortcake looks out of this world good!! Ooooh, the cowl looks so soft. =) And, YEA for Lucy Lou finding a forever home.

That's the best kind of shortcake. Looks like a nice cowl also. With Bloglovin on some blogs, including yours, I can only post if I open the whole blog rather than a specific post. It's weird. So glad Lucy has found a forever home!

I love acrylic for things that go around my neck or face. That cake is going to make me go eat something I shouldn't. Yay for kitties in good homes!

I can comment just fine! Oh, but you can probably guess that... from the comment. Thanks for the shortcake recipe! It's strawberry season already (at least, they're all on sale) and I just can't believe it. Strawberry shortcake is my favorite springtime food :)

Mmmm. We are waiting for local strawberries (which come in June). But I could do shortcake with chocolate syrup and whipped cream any time. :)
