rippled, ruffled, finished objects with cat   15 comments

Here are some shots of the Laura Nelkin rippled necklaces I have been knitting these days. As usual, hard to get shots of the shimmery beads without washing out the color. (But I am getting better!) The only ones not shiny are the black beads in the black and tan. I kind of like the change to matte.

Socks are pair number four of the Socks With Sarah KAL, made with Cascade Heritage sock yarn. The Tosh Sock Stargazing is pair number 5, which is coming right along, almost to the heel on the first sock.

Can’t let you go without a shot of Zumba, enjoying the sunnier weather and bird feeder action. She’s not a baby anymore!

  3. Love the necklaces and socks. I’m still ripping my sock back. Zumba is beautiful!

  4. Those necklaces are beautiful!!

    • Thanks! They are pretty easy to make – I put the link to the pattern in my post, they are worth checking out. Of course, they become addictive, then you have a million beads…

      • Just what I need, another addictive hobby lol. My poor hubs is going to be take over by craft supplies haha.

        • I know! They are so addicitive, these hobbies. But beads don’t take up much space. 🙂 There is a good book on learning to incorporate beads into your knitting called “Knit One Bead Too”. I can’t recall now who wrote it, but it is a good primer on using beads in knitting. And Laura Nelkin uses lots of beads in lots of patterns, including jewelry. Go, seek, find! 🙂

  5. I have a cat sitting on my lap right now who looks just like Zumba! Mine is Roxie–I love a tortoiseshell cat!

    • aren’t they pretty? My previous one, Tuppence, was very neurotic, was on valium for most of her life, just to cope in our peaceful little house. The vet’s assistant told me torties are always crazy, and as a result, we nearly did not choose Zumba at the shelter. But she was so cute. Turns out her black and white sister Allie is the crazy one. 🙂 Zumba is about as sweet and calm as can be. We love the little monkey. 🙂

  6. Your cat is so very cute!!
