Day 15

It’s been 15 days since Brandy disappeared.  It’s an up and down thing.  I’ve had folks with probably sightings, and probably some weren’t her, but I think a couple of them might have been.  The trap caught one cat, but since then, nothing.  Today I’m planning to go around and put flyers at each door, and meet the neighbors if they are home.  I’ll continue to put out the trap.  Still checking with all the shelters, etc.

In more fiber related news, I’ve figured out how to improvise a lazy kate for my interchangeable KCL spindle. See?  I’m using a small organizing basket that I had (they cost less than $10), and then I put the spindles with the fiber on them into the small square holes.

Then I used my super-duper method of holding the spindles –Yes, those are rubber bands.  If I get to a hardware store, I’ll buy some nuts to use.

Now I feel like I can spin much more efficiently, and no special equipment required!

  1. Sorry to hear she’s still at large. My daughter came home yesterday with the news that one of our neighbours has lost her kitty. She only had him two months so we are on the lookout for her cat. On the bright side a friend found her cat after seven months. She would periodically put up signs and the last time one of the people a couple of streets away say the sign and said, “Hey I have that cat.” So she got Max back. It’s a hard process finding a cat because they are so adaptable and smart.

    I would love to learn to spin but it always looks so daunting. Love the colour of your yarn but then I’m partial to blue. I wish I knew what I wanted to knit. I have yarn, I have patterns but I can never decide what yarn I want to use with what pattern. I find a yarn on sale, think that it would look nice in a certain pattern, search for a pattern, find one similar and then can’t make up my mind if I like it or not. Then I end up buying the recommended yarn, the sale yarn goes in my stash and the whole process is repeated. *sigh*

  2. Thanks. I’ve got a couple of leads, will be putting out the trap today in a couple of new areas.

    Spinning is fun! And because you invest in the yarn, you figure out something to do with it, rather than de-stash. Sometimes yarn hangs out for years in my stash before the right project shows up!
