Tour de Fat Cat
Happy Summer Solstice- usually this is not a happy occasion, but the weather has been glorious, and from this point on- days get shorter. For those of us looking forward to Autumn Equinox. I know there are lots of you, which means I may not be such a freak after all.
I joined Team Fat Cat, for Tour de Fleece on Ravelry. Which means that during the Tour de France, you spin up some fiber, show some pictures, and can win some prizes. There is not one time where I look at that Ravatar, and don't laugh. That is Slushie, Ginny's cat.
It's also a bit of an earworm, because I keep hearing Kraftwerk's Tour de France in my head. And Autobahn, The Model- gahhhh!
The garden is just glorious this year- so far. I already have some tomatoes growing. Just those cherry ones. (did I use the word "glorious" again?)
I need to block this- I almost ran out of yarn. I discovered I really like silk/merino.
And because I have boatloads of handspun, I am making a Springtime Bandit shawl with Fat Cat Magnolia Polwarth. I have to keep myself calm while the postal strike is on.
Certain kittyboys are allowed on the table, so he can look out the patio doors. Not when daddy is home.
