Slinky Cat in Marigold, Powder Puff, and Sugar Plum Fairy
someone had to be a piggy and dye it all by herself). It will be up in a few days.
We're still waiting for our shipment of Alley Cat and House Cat and as soon as it gets here we'll be back in the studio.

Boss Cat and I had an impromtu dye session this afternoon. It started off with 2 skeins to be over-dyed and then it became more. We're just waiting for our other shipment of Alley Cat and House Cat to arrive, then look out. Who knows what'll happen.

Into the Deep
On another note, I have the baby blanket almost finished, and I started a sock in our Stray Cat Sport. I normally knit socks with fingering weight, but I've been dying to try this base. I found the perfect pattern on ravelry....Duckies.( Did I mention it's a free pattern.)
So cast on I did, and I knit the whole cuff in one evening. And it's everything I thought it would be. Soft, squooshy and just a little thicker than I normally wear, but I wanted the warmth.

I'll have some new photos tomorrow of some Top Cat that Boss Cat dyed yesterday.
And on the knitting front, I finished the scarf for Julie that will be at the Knitter's Frolic in May.
Barb's Koigu Ruffle
Yarn: Prism Saki colour Ginger
The biggest hurdle was casting on the 648sts but I put a marker at every 100 and that made it a lot easier. The yarn was a dream to knit and it only took just over 300 yds. So a perfect one skein project.
Now I'm back to finishing the baby blanket, Julie's sweater, and fighting the urge to cast on for my new cardigan. It never ends.

Some new Slinky Cat Fingering: Mystic Forest, Blue Jean Baby, and Green Eyed Lady. I really love dyeing the greens and blues.
Some more Stay Cat Sport: Candy Girl, Mermaid Treasure, and Dusk.
And on the knitting front, I have half of Julies scarf knit and I have one more day off work, so I'm thinking if I get to it, I can have it done tomorrow.

And messing up Gramma's house and not getting in too much trouble.
And the day after is gramma's quiet time, breath in, breath out.
The weather is perfect again. So Ladydog and I sat out side and watched the laundry dry with a few more skeins fresh from the dye pot. We should have our new shipment of yarn coming in the next couple of weeks, so I been daydreaming of new colourways, and actually writing some of the more popular colours down so we can re-create them.
I also started a new scarf for Julie, for the Knitters Frolic in May. It's a gorgeous ruffled scarf knit with fingering weight yarn. I kept putting it off for the last couple of days, because you have to cast on 648 sts. But they're on there now an we're motoring right along. I'll post the details when it's done.
