Wheeee! Look! A new WebRing just for knitters with cats! (See snazzy graphic and links at the bottom of this page.) OK, I know it's a little... esoteric... but I do have a terrible weakness for felines. Just ask Mr. Casey.
The two elements of Clara's life, at least in an ideal world...
the weekly swatches

more and more swatches
hope springs eternal
more and more flowers
Of course an abundant supply of hot tea would be nice too.

Today I discovered that I may get to Rhinebeck after all. My oldest and dearest friend Theresa will be visiting from California, and we may take a guilt-free road trip to this fiberly Mecca. Two bloggers on the road... this has got to be good. (Although I can tell you right now that her posts will be far more interesting than mine.)

help!Oh order, where art thou? (Or in my case, oh assistant, where art thou?)

If you're wondering where your KR order is, here's a hint. If you're wondering why I haven't posted lately, here's a hint. This pic shows just one of five batches of orders -- two of which are still pending -- that came in during the past two weeks. Those plastic NeedleSizer tools are flying off the shelves faster than Denyse can even assemble them. It's a wonderful thing to see, especially as the bill for the 2004 KR calendar is due to arrive any day.
In the knitting realm, I have agreed to embark upon an interesting personal favor for a friend whose doggy is in need of woolly warmth this winter. I've taken measurements and will soon begin writing a pattern for a simple sweater for a smallish dog. I will definitely post my progress here, since I suspect there are more pooch parents out there who could use a pattern.
