I just had to reshoot these today. I can't stop looking at them. I think I'll be doing these in our sock base as soon as it comes in.
Yes, Julie I'm still working on the shawl, only 2 sides left to go.

Wandering Cat Yarns updated this morning. Slinky Cat Lace--Merino/Silk Lace, and the new Fluffy Cat--Alpaca/Silk/Cashmere.
Sounds like the Fluffy Cat might be Valerie's new favorite. Not sure how the other cats are going to feel about that.


I think the lace edging on Jared's shawl is taking the longest to finish. So I better get back to it.

I darn near had a heart attack yesterday! The cord for my Knitpick circular needle popped out of the ferule and about 40 stitches came loose. ACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
But being the professional I am, I managed to salvage and pick up the stitches on a spare needle and continue on. Good thing, there was no way I was ripping back 768 stitches.So now I'm starting the lace edging. Hopefully it should be done soon.

Crying in my beer....

I feel like I let the team down. Even with all my best efforts, I didn't finish the shawl for the Knitter's Fair, I'm still working on it. Life just keeps getting in the way.

Update....Labour Day Sale!!!

I just finished updating the shop with our latest colours.
We had a lot of fun with this batch. A few items that we thought were not going to fly, ended up being "Wow, I really like this one."
There are several here I didn't want to put up because I want them for me.So, in honor of the Labour Day weekend, we took 10% off our regular price on the Alley Cat Sock.
Next Saturday, Valerie is doing a local festival and will be taking all of our inventory from the shop. So if there's something you've been wanting, don't hesitate, because it may not be coming back from the show.

Now, I can get back to Jared's Shawl for Julie, and maybe I can finish my own sock.
