KNOCK ME OVER WITH A FEATHER

A Flamingo Stripe feather, that is. This is one of the new Shepherd Sock yarn colors from Lorna's Laces. I just ordered it on the 4th of May, and here it is, already. (Generally the dyed yarns from Lorna's Laces arrive anywhere from 4 to 12 weeks after I order them, so it was especially surprising that this Flamingo flew out here to the West Coast so quickly.) Lorna's Laces is donating a portion of the proceeds of the sale of Flamingo Stripe to breast cancer research organizations -- your Flamingo socks or scarf will show that you care.

In knitting news, last night I finished the homework swatch for Janine's class that will meet next weekend. Yup, I got the swatch done a full week in advance, all 2,835 stitches of it. I steamed it this morning and pinned it out on the dining room carpet to dry. A certain feline member of the family came along to test whether I have those T-pins in securely....

Stormy wears Softpaws, which are claw coverings that help to protect the furniture, rugs, etcetera from being snagged if she should take a notion to scratch them. I buy them for her at the vet's, but you can also read more about them and buy them from this site: http://softpaws.com/

Stormy looks so sweet....

I got my Flamingo Stripe yarn in the mail yesterday. There's just something about Lorna's Laces. My next pair will be from Lorna's - it might even be Flamingo Stripe!
