I'm sorry, I got distracted when you said "3.5-inch diskettes." A digital camera with diskette storage? I'm gobsmacked.


Beanie wants a mouse! Any color!


My kitties would also love a mouse, please!

Yes, 3.5" diskettes - I have a fully functional older Sony Mavica that uses them and takes excellent photos, it's just that if you're taking many photos, you've got to carry a huge pile of them along.

Sorry we ended up with the "short" version of the instructions for the pink sweater. That was the decision of the publisher, based on a long discussion between me, my tech editor, and a senior editor at Martingale. It was a trade off between space and detail and we decided since this was an advanced skill level project, that we would have to trust the expertise of the knitters. So knitter, beware! :-) Perhaps I should post the long version of the lace front side on my website....

Deborah Robson

First, I'm looking forward to sending out mice! They're really neat.

Second, this is also a Sony Mavica, and yes, 3.5-inch diskettes, and I can hardly fathom Dom's logistics in Alaska, but it's a *great* camera and another friend is now using it to experiment with digital photography.

And third, yeah, Donna, I think it would be good to post the long version of the lace front. It's simpler than some of the old Penny Straker patterns in terms of working the pattern into the front, but we spent such a lot of care working out the positioning of the lace repeats so they would work neatly with all the sizes that it would be a shame to waste the results completely.


Serendipity - I just came across Donna Druchunas a few days ago on a Google search for ergonomic knitting needles - she got in touch and I now know about her books and recent blogging - what fun and networking!
What's a blog tour? Those mice charm me - I imagine a cat (with the addition of catnip) are more than delighted.

Deborah Robson

A blog tour is a kind of celebration of the publication of a new book. The author visits blogs in turn, according to a schedule, or the blog writers post relevant comments or chat about related topics. It's fun!


Hey my kitty would L.O.V.E. a mouse and any ol' colour will do!


Kitty Knits looks meow-valous!! Also, my kitties would absolutely love one of your cute felted mice. Any color is fine. Thank you so much. :-)


If you have a mouse left - my calico kitty lost the one I made for her and I haven't made a new one yet! Doesn't Little Bit need a couple for herself?

Phyllis Bradley

Hey, Deb. Glad I found you, as I'm a big fan. Cats and yarn and spinning all together. Woo hoo! And yes, Fritz, and Millie the Woolsucker, would love a mouse if there are any left. Any color would be nice. Thanks for the offer.


Antone requests a mouse, but wants it known that he is not responsible should the mouse turn up disemboweled.

He is also very grateful and is lobbying for his own copy of Kitty Knits.


Oh, how frabjous! I must note here that Kissmas cat has made me promise to order a copy of Kitty Knits--just for the mousies. Of course, she got her gang of Purrkins, Mocha, and Jamiecat to surround me until I promised. The Big White Dogs are not amused, so maybe I'll have to knit a bone for them?
