We got Belvedere an elevated bed because he refuses to sleep in his cushy bed during the warm weather, This is a Coolaroo bed that has a nice open-weave fabric cover. He has used it once so far. He has to get used to new things.
I got some yarn from a Ravelry destash the other day. This is Ruby Sapphire Luster sock yarn in Kavita. It is now wound and ready to go. I am about to cast on for Simple Things when I find a size 4 needle.
