For HPKCHC Quidditch Round 4, we must make something that either (1) gets hung on a wall; (2) is a matched set; or (3) is outlandishly large, sparkly, crazy, or distracting. I’m going with option 2 and weaving a matched set of 5 houndstooth scarves (using the same pattern qualifies as a set). That’s one scarf in each of the four house colors and the fifth in House Unity purples. The Hufflepuff scarf is the first one I’ve finished.
During the last week of August, while Chris and I were in New Jersey, I boarded Pepper at the vet. This was traumatic for me; she’s 18 years old and never been boarded before. I’ve always had someone come to my house to feed and water the cats while we were away. But her health was fragile, and she was taking 6 medications a day which was a lot to ask of friends or family. So I boarded her. I sent her with the USA Kitty Pi that I made a few months ago. It never occurred to me that they might wash it, so I left no washing instructions. They washed and dried it which meant, of course, that it shrunk. It was now too small for Pepper!
