The internet is weird. Saturday morning I found myself genuinely saddened by the passing of Bitches the Cat. She was a Twitter celebrity who mostly showed off "paw work" (demonstrated above) and meowed the praises of catnip. She has two younger siblings who were a source of many postings and complaints.
Far from offering to lead the resistance, my cats are shockingly disengaged from politics. If they had to express opinions, it would probably be in favor of monarchy.
|My cats, Coal and Milkshake. I'll let you figure out which one is which.|
|Gila monsters don't shed, don't eat much, and their venom is medically useful!|
|Odysseus's infidelities may have made great scandals to Ithicans.|
It may be that following the adventures of celebrities and heroes adds excitement and glamor to our lives without the risk and responsibility that comes with real relationships.
Who are your favorite famous people (or guilty obsessions)? What do you love about them?

A friend has commissioned me to knit some pretty throws for her living room. Those will be my primary knitting for at least all of July. This is the best type of knitting. Someone else pays for fancy yarn and provides a use for the final product. I'll keep you updated on my progress.

I finally have the pictograph shawl and the green silk and cashmere wrap finished. They are currently being blocked, which means they are washed and then pinned into the desired shape to dry. Once they are dry enough to photograph properly, they will be posted in my shop.
