Don't Blink.....

It's hard for me to believe it is the 24th of January already.....

Monday night I came down with an intestinal crud that kept me out of commission until yesterday and there was even a trip to urgent care tossed in for good measure. Thursday Jimmy came down with it too. See Mom I can share!

While sick I didn't feel like knitting much but I did manage to knit some of the flowers for Molly's flower knitting project.

Yes Poo we see you!

Speaking of Poo here is an update... He is doing much better. Jimmy took him for his first glucose check last weekend and his levels were down almost 300 from before treatment. He will go in again next weekend for another test.

Today I blocked my finished Fiddlehead scarf.


I also cast-on and knit the first 3 repeats for That Little Scarf.


Kiki is just as crazy as ever. We have recently noticed she likes to lick plastic bags. My cousin in New York emailed me today to tell me she caught her cat licking a plastic bag and thought of Kiki. Is there anyone else out there with a cat that licks plastic bags?


I recently picked up some knitting porn. First, is Knitted Lace by Nancy Bush.


Second, is Knitter's magazine where I found this pattern of a kitty blanket and pillow. It almost has me wanting to try color work. IF I do decide to tackle this thing I will have to modify some of the blocks. I am not really digging the ET looking blocks.




I think I have found my next big lace project to knit. It is Large Rectangle in Leaf and Trellis pattern from Victorian Lace Today. I have over 3,500 yards of a brown/rust color lace weight yarn I think might be perfect for this project.

first... red scarf=awesome, so glad you finished... i know by the end you were a little over it. :)

2nd, glad you are better, sick=sucky

3rd, glad poo is better too

4th... yes, Howard will find whatever plastic he can to lick from plastic bags, to the plastic on the toilet paper... he's a weirdo and I've never understood it. Then I have Miranda who likes to lick the windows. Again, don't understand and she won't disclose the reason no matter how much I ask. :)

and lastly, that big lace project is amazing, good luck on that, can't wait to see it worked up.

Thanks Kristie! It feels good to be in the land of the living again. I am really excited about that lace project too. I am trying to finish up some things before I cast on for it though.
