First up, the cat lover picture.
When I looked at the picture, I realized that the man who labelled the shelf JAM so he can find his marmalade in the morning, has stuck a can of Guinness on that shelf. It puts a whole new dimension to breakfast!
My grandson, and his parents came to put up my Christmas tree. I guess I shouldn't have expected much from new parents.
The tree is up. It has two strings of lights and two ornaments.
And, of course, it had a cat in it before it was all the way up.
Nothing much gets in the way of knitting, even lemons. Actually, I think it helps with life's lemons.
Pattern is Invisicrown.
