A photoset of climbing down from the hand, Terra Style.
Witness the grace and beauty and athleticism.
Possibly the best photoset in rat history
Done a small update to the Great Woolly Owl shop with three skeins in a lovely new base; Persephone DK, which is 100% Blue Faced Leicester and comes in at 225m per 100g. I’ll be in the kitchen doing a spot of dyeing tomorrow, so there will be some more yarn going up next week, with some more of these little beauties and some gorgeously fuzzy Wensleydale DK.
Supercowl is done!
This is one of my own designs, which I came up with whilst doodling at work. It was knit in the round, joined at each end and then steeked down the middle to open it up. The edging is a steek sandwich (tutorial here) with an I-cord join to close.
The yarn for the body of the cowl is from the lovely Penelope Craft shop in Amsterdam in their Dutch Yarns brand. The grey is Gotland lambswool and the white is Swifter (which Google tells me is a Dutch breed) and the yellow contrast is Jamiesons Shetland Spindrift in Yellow Ochre which I already had in my stash and then had to buy more of as I used so much holding it double. When it came to the edging I had run out of the Gotland lambswool, but tracked down a really good match with Blacker Yarns Dark Gotland.
It was a lot of knitting and charting, but I am really, really pleased with this one!
Cat-shaped treats seem like a wonderful way to celebrate how much you like your feline friends. These treats are cat-shaped nerikiri, which is “a traditional Japanese sweet made by mixing shiro-an (sweetened white bean paste) with gyuhi (made of glutinous rice, similar to mochi but softer).” Caroline sculpts her nerikiri cats and kittens into various sizes and poses and then uses edible dyes to add distinguishing markings and fine details. She even makes little accessories for them, like tea sets and pillows for extra-comfy lounging.
Based on the effort that goes into making these sweets, it seems likely that Caroline’s family probably has at least one real life cat of their own and we’re guessing it leads a wonderfully spoiled life.
