Let's play a game!

What is it?

Is it a kitty blanket?

No, but that's Moustache's secret wish. He loves alpaca yarn and the silk just makes it more luxurious against his furry bits. I was surprised he didn't attack the "kitty blanket" when I placed it on him, he just posed like a good little kitty.

Well, if you've been reading my blog at all, you'll know this is the Lacy Hug-Me-Tight in progress. I've finished the inner rectangle and have started working on the lacy border . . . only I had to rip it back after seven or eight pattern repeats because I ended up with a couple of holes where they weren't supposed to be. Here it is after two pattern repeats.

I was able to knit quite a bit over the last few days because my Dad is in the hospital recovering from open heart surgery. He's fine, he had to have a valve replaced, but it's still quite a big ordeal. I'm glad I'm a knitter because I don't know if I could handle all the waiting around in the hospital if I didn't have something to busy my hands!


  1. Hoping your dad has a speedy recovery.

  2. Lovely knit! I bet it feels like a dream! best wishes to your dad :)

  3. Positive thoughts to your dad (sorry this comes so late, I've been taking a bit of a blog break lately)
