Tuesday Mewsday: Dia de los (Gatos) Muertos

Just in time for the Day of the Dead, Melissa picked up this wonderful tile for me at Alma Gifts and Culture, one of my favorite local shops (1705 Mission St., in case you’re in Santa Cruz and are interested).
Skeleton kitty
I’ve hung this beside my bed in memory of Woody. I love to imagine that when nothing remains of me but bones the skeleton-me will be slipping treats to the skeleton-Woodrow every day.

After a hiatus, Lydia’s blog, Dropped a Stitch, is back on line. I enjoy both her writing and her patterns, the latest of which is a lovely tam with just a bit of openwork. Check it out!

Also, if you’re a dishcloth knitter, you’ll enjoy this new “Vortex” pattern from through a transitions lens, darkly.
