When I started this itty-bitty yarn blog it was all free. Free server, free host, free everything. Then my blog got less and less itty-bitty and I started having to pay for stuff. But that’s okay because
a) I love writing here
b) I found two ways to make it pay for itself (mostly). I set up affiliate deals two companies that I know and trust, and I started taking donations.
When someone makes a donation two things happen. First I blush with a silly amount of embarrassed pleasure. Second, I post a picture in the left sidebar of one of my cute, wicked kitties doing something cute and wicked. Its my way of saying thanks! (If you’re on a mobile device, it might not be on the left. It might be somewhere down below the post.)
This week a very sweet reader made a larger than usual donation to help support this site and I wanted to do something special for her. I wanted to post more than just one cute and wicked kitty picture.
I wanted to post a whole bunch of cute and wicked kitty pictures! So these are for Carla and I’m sure she is happy to share them with the world.
How do I come up with a whole bunch of cute and wicked kitty pictures on a moment’s notice? Easy. I just set my knitting stuff down and get my camera. The cute and wicked kitty fun usually happens within 90 seconds.
Here is my on-the-go knitting bag…
… which is really her bag. Of course.
These little bits of foam that I use to keep the stitches from sliding off?
Those things are the best kitty toys.
Then there is the actually knitting.
It gets claimed by her Royal Catness at least once a day.
Really it is a wonder that any knitting gets down around here.
Again thanks to Carla and to all the people who have sent donations to support this site. Every little bit helps. They also makes me feel so happy that I started this blog in the first place. Thanks for the love!
