Converting...



...from these... ...to these...
...and it all started when I first found blogland...there were soooo many pretty patterns for dishcloths! I mean: DISHCLOTHS!!! Way too pretty to use only as dishcloths. So I ended up knitting them in wool, there might be enough for a lapghan or a shawl to put around my shoulders while knitting or watching tv. I just have to sew them together and make a border. It will not happen today. Not tomorrow either. But it MIGHT happen. It might...
Anyway- this will be like an oldtime sampler.

Mr. Blaack feels a bit lonely and left out these days...he is walking across the desert wich is supposed to be our new lawn...the grass HAS started to grow, but it has been too cold and too wet lately to grow decently. Judy asked what had become of him and Tussi. Tussi,I am sad to say, is no more. He started having these strange fits, got all still and stiff, started drooling, and then went off like a rocket. This happened several times, and we took him to the veterinary( she lives on the farm next to us). She examined him,he even got a fit there, and she found out he had epilepsy. We could have treated him with shots or pills, every day for the rest of his life. But since he's a farm cat, outdoors most of the time, we decided it wouldn't be right, so the vet put him to sleep. The vet said he'd probably hit his head severly at some point.


Lady Gray, however, gave birth to 6 little ones last night...in DD2s bed...at 1am... I had to change everything- comforter,bedlinens, the mattress...and the girl went to sleep in dad's bed:-)

Next time you see these, there won't be more than 2 left, we have always left the Lady with two kittens, because that is manageable to give away. I think we'll keep the stripey one, but the kids are to decide. It's part of life, part of living on a farm.

Have a great day!

Takk for koselig helsing i bloggen! Smart å lage lappeteppe av oppvaskklutoppskrifter - det er jo ikkje alt garn som absorberer like godt :-)

What a great idea for a laphgan!

Å så koselig blogg du har! Det er så moro å se bilder fra vakre steder i landet vårt, og å lese hva andre har på pinnene. Oppvaskklutteppet ditt blir rålekkert! Kos deg med nusselige kattunger og din vakre utsikt, det er sikkert nydelig hos deg nå i den fine klare høstluften!

Hæ Marit mín, er búin að vera netlaus lengi og því ekkert kíkt á síðuna þína í langan tíma. En rosalega eru kettlingarnir sætir, mig langar bara í annan Gæus Júlíus Sesar ;) En núna verð ég duglegri að fylgjast mér sérstaklega þar sem ég er að byrja að prjóna er held ég að fá bakteríuna ;)
