Then it was time for Lightning Jack (Mum's rabbit) to have his teeth trimmed, he was very good too. Lightening Jack is a wild rabbit (who is now very tame), Dad found him paralysed when he was a baby so he came to live with me and my family. Now his legs are all better and he can run very fast, that's where he got his name from.
Now on to my Mum and her knitting. She finished the Dreamcatcher socks, seen below with me. More of me than the socks, but hey, you've seen three pairs of Mum's socks already and there could be more to come!
Because look what I found in Mum's stash cupboard!!!!!!!!
Five, yes FIVE , balls of sock yarn!!!!!!!
From the left,
- Opal Rainforest Frog
- Opal Rainforest Peacock
- Opal Rodeo
- Opal Dreamcatcher
- Opal Crazy
I didn't know peacocks lived in rainforests, so I think that is a pretty silly name. The colours are good though.
So, which one do you think that Mum should knit next? Anyone out there please comment because Dad is getting fed up of being asked to choose one and Mum saying 'Oh, I didn't want you to pick that one!'
After my trying to sneak off with the Lorna's Laces the other day, and Mum being ashamed of not starting it, look what is now on the needles. Mind you Mum keeps muttering about not being sure if she likes the way it is knitting up.
Something about the strong contrast of the cream with the other colours!!! Don't ask me, I'm just the model. What do you think? Since taking the photo Mum has knitted a bit more and is still ot sure!
I'm off for some handsome sleep now, one day that blonde Afghan may come along and I need to be ready for her!
