But I still needed something warm and squishy and sparkly to wrap around my neck! I was fixated by this point! I guess it was a good thing that the local yarn store was having a big birthday sale where I could buy some discounted Kidsilk Eclipse! Soft, squishy, and sparkly! No beads required!

Thanks to that quick (hour) visit, our fur-kids …


… made it to Dutch/EU citizenship before we did.


Ungrateful little wretches! How come they don’t have to speak the language?!?
