A New Collar

The second clue for the Gnome Mystery Knit Along was released recently and now the hat is made.


The hat is finished with a cute little leaf (seems to be a theme...).


I finished spinning the sock yarn I made with some raw fleece that I had cleaned, dyed and carded.


I started a pair of toe-up socks. The pattern is Plain Sight by Lisa K. Ross - from the newest issue of Knitty (a free online knitting magazine).

Our little outdoor friend got a new collar this week-

she is trying to back out of her Elizabethan collar
Since she seems to be here to stay we decided to take her to the vet - she has had her shots, been spayed and tattooed. She has adapted really well to being inside and has turned out to be such a nice, easy going cat (if you had told me that two weeks ago I would never have believed you). She loves watching TV - especially hockey, also might be addicted to the iPad, and loves sitting on laps. Our children had hamsters and fish when they were younger but this is our first pet that walks around the house - she is quite entertaining.

Renovations are in full swing at our house (as you can see from the photos new floors are going to be put in - hardwood instead of laminate and vinyl flooring). My son made little steps out of the boxes for the cat to look out of the window since she wasn't supposed to jump.

All the best!♥︎

I do love the gnome - I forgot to tell you that I'm very tempted to join in with this :-)
