Let's play yarn chicken, shall we?

 Hello friends. Thanks again for your kind words about Jessie cat. We're slowly getting accustomed to our 'new normal' of being cat-less (Tim says it is the first time in 35 years he hasn't had a cat---not the same cats, of course--and for me it's been 26 years). 

We came back to the coast on Tuesday after a busy few days. We were both in a bit of a grief daze but did manage to get much of our Eugene office cleaned out, and I got a few other closets done. We brought out a desk for our office here and the first of three yarn cubes (3x3 cubes that hold 9 cloth boxes). That should be more than enough room for my yarn, given that I'm paring down a lot.

I'm getting close to the end of the 100 Acre Woods shawl, which is good since I've officially run out of the darker colored yarn. You can see how much I have left here. I"m holding the entirety of the darker color. 

And I don't have that much of the lighter pink color either, and it has a picot bind off which takes a lot of yarn. You can see the little ball of pink above. Hopefully this will be done this week. 

Happy April Fools Day and Rabbit Rabbit!

Knit FASTER; that's always my go-to in Yarn Chicken.

I know how the house feels with one less heartbeat. Still thinking of you and sending you love.

So the shawl is looking good--I hope you beat the yardage!!!

Yarn chicken never feels very good, does it? But the shawl will be lovely -- and such a happy, joyful color. I hope y'all are feeling more settled as the days go by. It's so hard to lose a beloved pet . . . XOXO

Keith still misses Weeko, who died three years ago. It's a big loss.
I hope your hard holds out. Those picot bind-offs are yarn hogs.
I need to destash, too. Probably won't happen until retirement!
