Innocent when we sleep

Brigid would like everyone to think so, anyway. She has been very sweet to Brutus, who continues to look and act like he feels a little better every day. Feeling enough better to put up a tiny bit of a fight when it's time for his medicine.

Also, some finished objects. The Annetrelac socks, done in luscious Wollmeise Sockenwolle, Salamander colorway. I managed to obtain this yarn with ease directly from Claudia many months ago, before her yarn became the object of lust from all woolpigs.

I also finished the Curly-toed Elf Slippers, from Weekend Knitting, which I began optimistically for my granddaughter Chloe about 2 1/2 years ago, before I knew how to do more than cast on, knit, purl, and could barely knit in a circle with DPNs. I got to the short row heels and gave up. Amazing what the passage of time can accomplish. (It also helps to keep trying the things you can't do, I guess) I'm glad I have stuck with it. Good thing I picked the child's large size to do; these will probably just fit her 3 year-old elvish feet.

Heh, I love seeing cats with their toes curled under like that on her hind feet :^)
I'm glad to hear Brutus is faring well.

Love the socks and those Elf slippers are sooo cute, perfect for a little girl, those colours.

So pleased to read that Brutus is feeling better.

Wow! what lively, astonishing knits! I'm not sure that i have the stamina for entrelac socks. Are the flexible around the ankle?

Best wishes for full restoral of health to your Brutus. I hope your gorgeous Zoe is helping him clean himself, his little jaw must hurt terribly. Love your sock stash, now I don't feel quite as guilty.
