Recently, there has been a raccoon
trying to move in to Chez Knitting Companion.
A Roof-Top Expedition was arranged to see
what roof top damage has been done.
The Knitting Companion and i were
the official ladder-holders and tool-fetchers
for the Team of Ladder Climbers.
Of course, this means that we'll be taking
a trip to the hardware store, to obtain
more suitable supplies.
For now, it's time for a little drink ...

There have been
Requests to see the Knitting Companion
in all his clean and trimmed glory.
He is closed today, for need of catch-up sleep.
i promise a photo will be along shortly.
but not today.
i respect his right to sleep privately.
Happy Springtime from the kitchen.
I love the way the sunlight
pours into the kitchen when spring
time comes around.
time for some espresso.
The Knitting companion had his hair cut yesterday.
This morning, he's had a very long and social walk.
Social, meaning that he met several of his friends.
He also met a lovely, well-dressed lady along the street.
I think it was love at first sight for both of them.

it was through this Canadian site, Jacqs Hats,
that i found a wonderful new hand washing liquid for knits.
Soak is a
"Modern care for fine fibres".
Available in three light, clean scents, this product
cleans your garments wonderfully, without any
perfumey fuss. This is a no-rinse product, biodegradable
and phosphate free.
Soak leaves garments smelling
fresh and not perfumed. What a great change !
I bought the "aquae" scent and it's marvellous.
I purchased mine through the website. Ask at your
local yarn shop for Soak, or go through the
Soak will be featured in Elle Quebec's May issue,
on newstands now.
