thank you thank you!!!

I wasn't going to use the pink; I had picked out "honey" which is a pale but warm yellow... I wax going for "organic". But I didn't think it *popped* enough. then I saw the pink in my stash accidently laying next to my color for the tubey, and I was like "hmmm.... red and green are complementary colors.... so would pink and light green work????" I like how it looks now, kind of like the leaves and the dirt and the flowers. I was debating on whether or not to add stripes to the body, now, b/c I do have a lot of yarn left... but I think that the pink would then draw attention to areas I'd rather keep... subtle

Stanley IS yawning, but I thought he looked like he was singing because of how his head is angled up... and his eyes are totally close (usually he just bugs them out when he yawns) so it looks like he's smiling. He's happy because my tubey is so pretty. :-)

Something is seriously wrong when you start taking accidental pictures of your cats and then analyzing their emotions.

I love all of the pictures you took to show your work! Great knitting, I mean purling! I didn't know that you could do that, I will have to try that sometime. Love your cat pictures!
