Thanks

Thanks for all your comments about mini – each one is appreciated!
The house still feels empty without her.

I will be meeting famous knitter Cat Bordhi and friends at The Constant Knitter on May 9th at about 5:30pm – drop in if you’re in town! I recently did a trunk show there – this is a swatch of MagicWaves with Sari and Hibiscus:

Thanks for recent comments and enquiries about Mini – she’s had some health issues recently and is slowing down a bit – visits to the park are a bit more sedate:
