Secret Pal Goodies!

Yay! Thank you, SP! You have done it again! You have fine tuned your Mission Impossible tasks by stealthily leaving another package at our front door. Although, the BBDS did help provide you cover. Her barking and usual attack mode at the sound of the doorbell won you some time to get away without a trace!

I ended up having a dream out the KnitPicks Andean Silk. My mother was knitting a scarf with it in stockingette stitch and it wasn't curling! I was amazed for two reasons: 1. That the stockingette wasn't curling one bit and 2. My mother was knitting!

One thing not seen here is the Trader Joe's peanut butter cups...(insert Homer voice over here)mmmm...peanut butter cups.... And where did you get those fruit snacks? They are awesome! The earrings are just as delicious!

Thank you, SP!!! Hope to meet you soon!

Miss Me?

It's been a while since I've stopped by. Despite being on school break I didn't get as much knitting done as I would have liked. But I did manage to squeak out a couple of things. I have one pillow done... so instead of the saggy testicle like pillows from Kohl's I now have one large firm testicle in an oversized sack. Yup, that's right. The pillow itself is great, but I overestimated the size of the knitted panels. There is about an inch of fabric hanging down. Oh well, it's still a great supportive pillow!

And, I also finished another pair of socks! I love knitted socks. I announce that I am officially addicted. This pair is made of KnitPicks Dancing. Here is the pair that was for and modelled by The Crazy Cat Person:

Speaking of cats, this here is a picture of The Crazy Cat Person's 19 year old cat! This is The Lum. Her real name is Pennie. When she was younger, she was one squishy round cat who laid around all day long. Along comes old age and she suddenly dropped about 13 pounds courtesy of hyperthyroidism. She still looks pretty good for an old girl. But don't try to talk to her. She can't hear you. She can't even hear herself and so her meow's have reached the same decibal level as a jet engine. Well, not quite.... but you get the idea.
