This kitty visits us occasionally and totally freaks out our cat, even though this cat is outside and Ginger is not. Does anyone know what kind of cat this is?
On Saturday we finally had some sunshine and were rewarded on our walk by this view of Seattle. If you look closely, you can even see the Space Needle! Since then it's been raining and raining, and this morning there's even a small "lake" in our driveway.
Look what we found in our nearby neighborhood! It's a monkey pod tree, but I don't know where these trees originate. Do you?
When they bloom the unusual flowers look like this. When they are done blooming, the flowers turn to pods, hence the name. But I don't know where the "monkey" part comes from. We don't have monkeys around here, just cougars, coyotes, and bobcats! 😉
Here's my most recent finish, hat from yarn that was in my stash but has been discontinued. There were only 40 yards in the ball, and it was somewhat like knitting with rope on the size 15 needles. I added some rows to the pattern, but it's still a really snug fit. And if you're wondering about the flowers, they were already part of the yarn and could be placed by sliding them along the yarn. You never know what's still in your stash, do you?
Well, that's it for now. Hopefully I will have another finish soon. Have a great week!
