Stormy skies over Monterey
Stormy weather also means I usually get more time for knitting. I'm almost done on these gift socks:
WendyKnits Nanner pattern in Handmaiden Casbah yarn, colorway Amber.
Knitspot Lacunae pattern, in The Sanguine Gryphon's fabulous Bugga! yarn, Orchard Spider colorway. The cashmere content of this yarn, and the firm twist, combined with this pattern...I was actually sad to finish knitting these.
I also finished a sweater for one of my grand-dogs, Lil Dude, in leftover PolarKnit:
Poor Brutus-cat. He has given up protesting very hard about having to model dog sweaters! I'm seriously considering knitting him a sweater of some kind, he's getting old and is cold all the time. I'm thinking fuzzy black and yellow wide stripes. Stay tuned.
And an assortment of cat toyz, these are crocheted actually, Squigglies, stuffed with catnip. Who loves her grandcats?
And finally, the soft light really enhances how everything looks.
