After posting yesterday about my broken Brittany DPN, I remembered that they have a good reputation for replacing broken needles. So I’ve e-mailed them with the specs. We’ll see what turns up.
It also looks like the 5″ length that I prefer for sock knitting may not be discontinued, as I’d been led to believe. It was a LYS owner that told me that, so maybe it’s just that the distributor she dealt with was no longer going to offer them. The new Patternworks catalog came today, though, and they’re listed in there.
On the Rattie front, Lola got to visit in the boys’ cage yesterday. She did some dominance posturing, but mostly the encounters were, well – not peaceful, but not as aggressive as you’d expect.
On the other hand, Leonardo also took an opportunity to climb into Lola’s cage, and boy, did she get upset! She lit into him like you’d think he was a rattlesnake, and she had a nest full of babies or something. This putting them together thing will clearly have to be handled carefully…
