It's a miracle!

Apparently all it takes to bring peace to my kitty-kingdom is a pouch of Friskies Gravy Sensations, split three ways and doctored up with a little Pro-Pet Skin & Coat Care Formula (soy bean, cod liver, and wheat germ oil, plus vitamins -- it works wonders on dry kitty skin).

Kitties all together
Yes, that is a snow boot next to a sandal there in the corner.

That's Vinnie in front, Dolly in the middle, and Harley at the back. While they were waiting for me to get it all divvied up, Harley and Dolly huddled together, then at the same time, turned toward Vinnie and hissed. It really looked like they were discussing their options, and decided a good hiss was the best answer!

Vinnie has been getting much braver, exploring the whole house. I really think it's just a matter of time before they're all getting along -- or at least tolerating each other.

In knitting news, have you seen Snowden Becker's pretty Larkin (rav) baby blanket? After I admired it, she asked me if I would like to test-knit it. I explained that I have to finish the big green blanket, and that I'm a really slow knitter. She said that was okay, so Saturday evening, I cast on for it in KnitPicks Comfy Sport in a wonderful shade of grey called Whisker. Actually, I tried to cast on Friday evening, after the yarn arrived, but realized that I didn't own any size 4 DPNs, so I had to work on the big green blanket until I could get a set of DPNs the next morning.

Beginning of Larkin

Even though this is supposed to be a baby blanket, I think I'll be keeping it for me!

I'm still slogging along on the big green blanket.

Who knew kitty peace could be achieved so easily, albeit briefly?! :)

Oh, that's a nice pattern - can't blame you for planning to keep the blanket for yourself.

Snowden's patterns are awesome. I've actually witnessed two of these being knit! You'll be so happy -- it come out gorgeous.

I'm sure its just a matter of time before they are all one big happy kitty familiy.

That is a beautiful baby blanket, I'm anxious to see how you like it. I need a semi-quick project for a workmates baby, and that looks like it might not be too bad.

Lovely blanket - don't blame you for wanting to keep it.

I know what you mean by kitty peace!!
