Summer Beach Top

A few days ago I cast on Villeneuve.
I finished today, however I definitely need some better pictures!
This is pre-blocking, after blocking to looked much better, and looks best on a person - it may be a while before I can get a proper picture!

I finally got around to knitting a Patch!
I decided she was a girl, and with a face like this, how could you argue?
I think I may have to make my own pumpkin patch family soon!

Back in March, I found out I won one of the Jan/Feb KAL prize for the Susan Claudino Designs group (She does a random number generator, so everyone has a fair chance).
Today my prize arrived, all the way from New Zealand!

The yarn is so soft, I want to pet it all day!

Happy World Rat Day!

Meet Tea and Biscuit!

These were a birthday present (about a week early!) from my lovely man-beast.  They're a bit on the older side, between 6 and 8 months, but I love them all the same. We picked them up on April Fool's day, and they seem to cuddle in quite nicely.

They're a very cuddly pair, they love nothing more than lounging on the couch snuggled up together... and eating.  I've only had them a couple of days, so they don't do much of anything else just yet, but we have a list of fun things to try and I'm looking forward to getting to know them better.

Some of you may know I have a cat, and wonder how they get along.  Demon is an observer type cat, so he gave them each a sniff, then backed up a few feet to watch.  He's been the same with our fish and mice, never bothering any of them.  He seems to enjoy watching them from on the chair near their cage as he falls asleep, I think he likes the sounds they make.

Once they've learned some tricks, I'll see if I can post a video of them being adorable.  Until then, I'm off for ratty snuggles and some knitting!

I hope everyone has ratastic day, and a happy Easter!
