Kitties in Spring . . .

Every spring, we have a “crop” of kittens —
which out here in the country is a necessary thing!
Everyone is looking for kitties to live in the barn or hunt near the house,
to keep the pests at bay!

We are usually able to give them all away,
and they definitely come “pre-loved” as part of the package (courtesy of my daughter) —
who had better marry someone with the last name of Dolittle,
as much as she loves animals,
and would probably keep them in her closets and drawers if we let her!

We often pick a cute one to keep for ourselves.  This one is my choice this year!

New knitting books . . .

Not much time for blogging today — we spent about 5 hours in town today
to give away some of our baby kittens . . .

This picture is when they were a few days old,
but now they’re weaned and ready for a new home!

Everyone must be at the lake, or celebrating graduation this weekend,
because we came home with only one less kitten —
sigh, maybe next weekend!
(anybody want a kitten?)

NOW . . .

just had to share some new knitting books I’ve found recently!

The toe-up sock book is one I’ve been wanting for some time,
and between the two other books, I now have access to over
300 more knitting stitches!  I’ve been just pouring over these books!

The only one I’m waiting for is “Sock Innovation” by Cookie A.

Just . . . can’t . . . wait . . . !
