Thank you for your kind comments on the YinYang Kitty socks. Nance reminded me (as did Fletch) about the Whiskers! How could I have forgotten? I think I was just happy to have them off the needles. Well, last night I re-did the eyes on the dark kitty - much improved. And I added whiskers to both:
Now I love them! The yellow eyes are just a duplicate stitch over the green (knitted) eyes that did not show up very well. For anyone considering knitting this pattern I recommend that you do the eyes and nose as duplicate stitches rather than intarsia. If/when I make these again that is how I will do them. I was thinking these would make cute slipper socks in a heavier yarn. Just an idea.
I mentioned that Fletch and I are planning our Fall camping trip. That will be at the beginning of October - heading up to New England and going along the coast of NH and ME, then back down to CT and the Woodstock area of NY. And, my annual Sisters' Weekend is now set for the 24-27 of October. Yesterday I booked my flights. Excited!!! We will be back in Providence, RI so we can see Mom (my friend Leslie's Mom). I've already bought some "for coming" gifts...need/want to get a couple more things for Mom.
We are expecting some heavy rain later today - I've been receiving texts and email alerts about possible flooding. Hoping I can escape the workplace before the deluge happens! Wishing you all a wonderful day.
