Life saved, knits made.

Well, as per usual we've saved another critter & welcomed him into "The Creative Castle" household. I can't disclose the exact details or location from where the animal came from (in the courts), but he is safe & doing well.
This is what the wound on his lower back looks like after 41/2 months of rehabilitation. He is absolutely the most affectionate little guy ever. He doesn't make any noises as such except for a gentle low purring. He seems to be adjusting to his new mates well & constantly wants to be cuddled.

I now introduce you to "PJ".
On a different note, I can now post some pics of the Christmas knits. These are some of the knitted (& some crocheted) gifts that went out this year.
Crocheted washcloths with a natural soap bar. Made from Bernat's
cool crochet". Lovely sheen & soft texture, approx. $3.99/ball 50grams. You can make 1 cloth per ball if you work a double strand (one from each end). The edging is optional & uses up any extra you might have effectively.
Knitted catnip mice from the pattern in the "Stitch 'n' Bitch Nation"
Great way to use up ends as each mouse doesn't take a whole lot of yarn. I did i-cords for the tails & attached them on after. Also have plenty of wild catnip that I put in the herb grinder & then serged into muslin squares.
Right now I'm finishing up on the skull illusion scarf which I hope to have done shortly so I can post pics.

Peace out, Boop
