    I’m so pleased they are starting to settle down. It is heartbreaking when your furry ones are upset.

    I also rather like your funky new specs. Very hip!

    I think the colour for the Catrin is fab and will look great once it is all done and blocked.

    By the way have you thought about a crafting lamp. I had one for my cross stitch but it got put away when I started knitting. Then when our lights moved in our re-wire, I dug it out again and now I can see my knitting again, much more clearly than with the normal overhead light.

    Ohh a knitting lamp – that’s a good idea – do you have one of those day light ones? Which one do you have – I always wondered if they were worth the extra money??

    Love the knitting, not usually a brown fan but I think those cables will look great in any colour!
    My heart goes out to your little felines. I hope that they are soon happy and settled.

    Oh what a lovely post. A rather strange comment, as it brought a tear to my eye! 🙂 So so glad that the boys are settling down at last and will soon be back there helping with their very important knitterly tasks. Can’t wait to see Catrin completed. Have a good week! Ros

    Catrin looks likes its going to be extra warm, and snuggley, just the thing for the cold Jan/ feb that’s forcast. So glad to hear that the cats have settled in and made themselves at home. Dawn

    Regarding bulbs: If your current lamp and the main room have standard fittings (either screw or bayonet) hubbie and I have a small stash of energy-saving daylight bulbs (35W, equivalent to 150W) and would be happy to post you a couple to try.

    PM me on Phoenix if you’re interested.

    Catrin is looking good – the cables are super! As for lighting – I have a cheap halogen desk lamp from Ikea on the table beside my chair – I can direct it to shine on my knitting/sewing, without annoying my husband who dislikes bright lights in the evening.

    Poor babies, what a worry they are. If only you could explain things to them properly. Heartbreaking, but I’m glad they seem to be making good progress. They will settle in eventually, they always do, but it’s hard during the process. Hugs and schmoozes to Thug and Mewslie.

    Hope that Thug and Mewsley are more settled and looking forward to their turkey dinner. They deserve to snuggle on your blankie.

    Oh gosh, I was quite in suspense reading about the kitties! It never occurred to me they’d have trouble adjusting, but at 18, it’s probably natural that they would. I hope it improves a bit each day. Poor blind kitty! At least they have each other to snuggle up with. I have a one-eyed kitty and she gets around fine, except some things she is uncertain jumping up on, having lost her depth perception.
    That’s a gorgeous sweater you’re knitting! I haven’t seen that Rowan book yet. I think the tweed looks loverly. And your denim throw looks very nice on the bed :o)
