Dulaan Stuff Packed and Ready to Go

I ended up with three hats, three scarves, and a pair of socks this year for The Dulaan Project. There's a picture of one of the scarves in progress. The other one is a dark burgundy, but the flash washed it out. I omitted one cable to make these child-sized scarves. I had a model for the socks! They were knit from some leftover worsted-weight stuff to make a nice, thick pair of socks for those cold little Mongolian feet!

Now I will work on some Father's Day socks. Can't wait to get them done even though I just started. (What happened to going to start them early so as not to run out of time?) They are drab grey ribbed socks. I'm anxious to start myself a pair is the problem! There's also a couple of small things I'd like to do soon for the store.

I had to take Pumba back to the vet's today. He couldn't poop all weekend. All he did was cry, strain, throw up, and he wouldn't eat or drink. $257 later he's back, cleaned out and on daily medicine for the rest of his life. They figure he has megacolon. I had already concluded that this weekend. (Basically his colon is stretched from being constipated fairly regularly, and the muscles weaken, thus making it hard to poop.) Being a long-haired bobtail doesn't help, either. He has to take 1.5ml of lactulose twice a day for the rest of his life. So he's smelly, eating again, and being treated like he has the plague from the other two cats, especially the female. She's quite the hissy, growly b*tch to him.

Had a couple of more things to show, but Blogger crapped out on uploading pictures again!

Happy knitting!

Congrats on your supply for the Dulaan project. It must make you feel good to send all that off to those that can really use it.

Amazing work you've done for the Dulaan project, you've been so productive and I really love all that you did! Great job!
Poor little Pumba, I can well imagine how bad he felt - but at least now you know for sure what it is that's been hurting him. Fingers crossed that the medication will work well and he'll be fine again soon!
