kitty: ekkk... I have been tagged

Check out my new socks from Mia..... They fit like an absolute dream. I really hope that after Felicia takes some time off she will come back to dyeing. Her colours truly are beautiful.

The yarn is Sweet Georgia in Still Waters and the pattern is the Baby Cable pattern from Sensational Socks.

Thank you so much, Mia...

  1. Wow… I'm tired just reading all this stuff.
    Did you really pet a stingray?
    And what happened to number 75 (no question or answer shows up)?

  2. Okay, you mean to tell me that you have never ridden a bike? That is one of the accidents I shouldn't have survived. I got lucky on that one.

    And we need to work on #80 too. They don't hurt - I promise!!! ;)

    And there is no #75.

    BTW,, I lam happy to see you wearing the socks already.

  3. Hi Francesca,
    Yes, I did pet a stingray and actually gave him food as well. I use to really be in to raising weird fish. The fish store that I went to had a pet stingray in the store and they would let there favorite customers play with him. So on several occasions I give him his dinner and let him swim over my hand. He now lives at the Columbus Zoo because he got to big for the store.

    Hi Mia... Nope I don't have any idea of how to ride a bike. When my mother was a child there paper boy was killed on a bike and it was always viewed as too dangerous growning up.

    #75 I must say I wondered how bad it was that it was removed. :)

  4. So what happened??? You use to be such a wild and crazy woman!!!

    .... Don't worry I still love you always. Those were the good old days that I will always treasure.

    Hey I am just about a hermit these days with my flowers.
