You know I love you, little cat. You're such a cutie, you make biscuits on my tummy, you snuggle me and give me constant entertainment.
you also bite. I don't mind so much when you bite me, but I don't really like it when you bite other things. Like this:
You know, like this Tussah silk lace scarf I made for mom? Yeah, I'd much rather you bite me than eat my knitted things.
Luckily, my mom is an understanding woman, and she knows what you're capable of. So when I told her that you ate her gift, she wasn't surprised.
Luckily, I was able to take a few pictures before you had a snack, so here's an FO to share, although it is now a RFO (ruined finished object). Hopefully, it will eventually be a Re-FO!
Details: Liesel, by Yummy Yarn
Yarn: La Lana Wools Tussah Silk, Strangebrew (purchased on my New Mexico yarn vacay!), 236 yards
Needles: Size 8
Time: About six months, and who knows how long it will take me to have the courage to fix it??
Recipient: my very understanding mother
Thoughts: The silk yarn was luscious and amazing to work with. Luckily, I have a tiny bit left which I will use to try to salvage this gorgeousness. I might try this again with a larger needle, or maybe I'll block it again once I fix it. I was pretty scared to block this, since it's silk, and I read you shouldn't wet-block silk. Instead, I used the iron by holding it a few inches away from the scarf, and ran it over and over to somewhat steam it. I don't think it blocked well, but it sure
is was pretty!
