scarves, cats, and shawls
I've never blocked before so hopefully I didn't just destroy this thing!!
As a reward I cast on a little kitty pi for my cat Frances, who is living with my folks, patiently waiting for me to return to the US. I'm using Reynold's Lopi and Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Bulky. I love it!!! I also actually figured out a bit about washing machines so I can hopefully have a successful go at felting this time around. Last time I got lost because I assumed US 'hot wash' would just be the hottest setting here. Well, the hottest setting in cleanliness obsessed Switzerland (seriously, the toilet seats are all removable for quick cleaning) is 90C, nigh onto boiling! No wonder I destroyed a pair pf mittens. Turns out 'hot' in the US is like 50C (120F). OOPS!
And here's the latest on the Mystic Waters KAL, including my first ever lifeline (made of dental floss!). I love how this is coming out too. Can't remember the last time I was so happy with all my various knitting!
