I did indeed salvage the yarn that Rocky thoroughly mangled. And for those of you who asked... yes, he's still alive... but only because he's so darn adorable....
See for yourself:I've completed another repeat or two on the shawl, but I can't show you any pictures. It's sooo big on the needles I can't spread it out and it just looks like a giant blob of knitting.
What I can show you is that Fluffy Cat shawlette that was blocking all those weeks ago. It's no longer blocking and Mom took some lovely photos for me:
The plan is to get the pattern together sometime this week. When I do, you will be the first to know.
