A Cat Picture For No Reason
Dorian's determined to catch that black miscreant if he comes near our garden beds again..... He was very worked up after that incident, and made the mistake of trying to bully Lulu. She smacked him with her awesome right hook, boxed his ears and chased him out of the room. Normally he wouldn't try this with Lulu, having previous experience with the aforesaid right hook, and as long as he doesn't actually challenge her he can keep kidding himself that he's the dominant one. Yeah, right.
In knitting news: I did something last night that I have never done before - I swatched. Yes, I am so serious about this whole Knitting Olympics thing that I carefully wound my yarn (and doesn't a big skein of laceweight take a heckuva long time???), swatched, and got a near-enough gauge. I figure it's a shawl - gauge doesn't need to be spot on, and there's always the magic of blocking. This is going to be a challenge - I've never knit a laceweight shawl before, and this pattern is a complex one!
Good thing for the day: I'm sending a package to the UK!
Bad thing for the day: There isn't one.... yet.
