Thanks to everyone for your lovely comments and emails about Cher. I just can’t respond, they make me cry reading them and every time I try to type a response I get a lump in my throat. But I appreciate everyone single message and have read each one and felt all the love and support. Now back to knitting…
The only thing I was able to finish in the month of May was my cousin’s La Briohème Cardigan. I got close to finishing my Allison cardigan but it wasn’t meant to be – but it is finished now. I have a feeling June will have lots of finished objects because summer knits are coming.

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together….
I was so sad when I heard about Cher. I was walking with my husband when I got an alert for the post on Wednesday and started crying when I read the post. My husband was also tearing up when he asked why I was crying and I handed him my phone. I never met her in person, but after binge reading your blog when I discovered it in January I had grown close to Jellybean and Cher. She was so loved and spoiled rotten in the nearly six years that you had her, and she left you knowing that. My thoughts are with you during this difficult transition.
I am sorry for your loss. It’s always hard to know what to write, but I just wanted to say that you are not alone. We’re a crowd here listening to you and supporting you. You spread so much love and energy through the universe with you amazing work, and it obviously comes back to you ten times fold. Keep writing and living with such a great heart!
Dana, we understand. We adore you. 🤗
