The Formerly Saturday Now Friday Contest

I forgot to have a contest last Saturday. I suck. But it seems to me that not many people read blogs on the weekend. So this week we'll have a Friday contest. As in "today is the contest." There's no point in making you guess how many squares I've crocheted since the last contest because the answer is NONE. I think I may be temporarily "squared out." So if you'd like to win this lovely prize ...

... just leave a comment. Any comment will do. Except for "April, you have too many rats so stop adopting already." What? You can't figure out what the prize is from this obviously stolen picture? The prize is three balls of Jo Sharp Silk Road Tweed DK. Which is 85% wool, 10% silk and 5% cashmere. In the "Cocoa" colorway. A total of 441 yards (I used my calculator to figure that out). That should be enough to make a scarf or a little shawl or something. If you like brown tweed scarves.

Were we just talking about rats? I think we were. Now I know we've already seen a sort of picture of Sophie but we haven't seen any REAL pictures. And we haven't seen Bella yet. Therefore, for your viewing pleasure, I present to you "The Squirmlings"!

Here is a picture of Sophie eating some baby food. Organic chicken and pasta stars even. She likes to dig through it and pick out the carrots. I adore Sophie. No really, I ADORE HER. When she runs her little tail curls into a circle and she looks like a race car. She's very diligent about cleaning my ears every night and likes to play in my hair.

It's Bella Boo! My Olympic athlete rat. If Bella could enter the long jump, she would win gold every time. She's not a big squish like Sophie but still very lovable. They make a good pair, Bella is extremely smart, Sophie runs into walls.

And just a reminder, you have just 15 more days until the "April Has Lost Her Mind" contest comes to an end. All the details can be found here ... CONTEST!

    Your rats are so cute. I'd like some rats, but I think with my cats they may end up as lunch. It's probably just better not to tempt fate! Can I live vicariously through you.. maybe you could adopt one just for me :)

    Olive is athletic. Maybe Bella and Olive could have an olympic event? A rat and a cat.
    That would be interesting...

    CUTENESS OF RATNESS!!!! I am overcome. The fact I can stand to look at pictures of chicken with stars despite having a bout of hopefully-only-24-hour stomach flu is testament to the cuteness of rat.

    Much cuter than the pack rats we get in the desert.

    I am leaving you a comment to comment about how neat I think it is that you are the 'crazy rat lady' and have adopted all that cuteness.

    I have to say you are the first crazy rat lady of my acquaintance!

    April, you don't have nearly enough rats so start adopting already.

    (My verification word is "goati." This probably means you need to get some of them, too. I miss the goats.)

    Awwww, baby food for your beautiful babies :-) Those ratties are lucky to have you as their mommy!
