My apologies that I have not been in touch with anyone over the past week by email.

I lost my beautiful black and white cat called Beryl (aged 8) unexpectedly and did not achieve much through the week.  I did write a list of everyone I needed to contact on Friday 20th but didn't turn the computer on.  I have taken to writing a few blogs on a weekend and then I schedule them through the week.

I was in shock on Monday and needed something to keep my hands busy.  Brain was not in gear at all.

So I started knitting myself a pair of socks...  I have knit many tiny Sasha sized socks with the turned heel and grafted toes but never actually knit a human sized pair...

I was not in a pink/purple or even a blue mood... So I lifted out the Jitterbug in Salted Caper...  When this colourway arrived in the post a couple of months ago, I knew it was not right for the Sasha dolls and vaguely wondered what on earth to do with it.  Not really a colourway I liked... actually... I have no idea what possessed me to choose it... I think... I thought it would work with a forthcoming Sasha collection...

I cast on and started work...  watched a couple of my favourite Studio Ghibli movies... ended up surrounded by tissues... and knitted... and knitted...

By Wednesday I was able to wear them.  On Thursday I cast on for a new pair of socks but this one is a more complicated pattern and unfortunately my brain still is not quite in gear so I am only 2/3rds of the way down the leg in the first sock in the new pair... knitting them in Noro sock wool...

Thank fully...

My brain doesn't feel all clogged up with damp cotton wool anymore and I am re-entering civilisation again...

    I'm so sorry to hear about your cat, Nikki. Hope you're feeling a bit better by now...though I always think we never do get over it completely. In fact I'm now a bit tearful over my own lost cats...oh damn!

    Lots of love

    Always sad to lose a much loved pet. They really do become family. Yes, knitting helps. I hope you"re doing better now that it's been a few months.
