At some point a witty saying will materialize here. Right here. Watch for it.

Cat Bullet

Wednesday morning

Filed under: Hobbies and Obsessions,It's a Cat's Life — Cat @ 9:11 am


Hi all,

I hope everyone is sitting down. I actually made it to knitting last night.

I know, I know. Shocking, really.

It was so wonderful to see everyone – Terrie, Judy, Mary, Cheryl, Betsy, Christie and Beth!! You just made my evening with your warm welcome and lovely faces.

It was so wonderful that the fact that Knit Knack was having a yarn sale almost didn’t register.


I got a bag of variegated cotton yarn in blues and tans, and am intending to use it to make a wedding afghan for a long time friend of mine. Luckily, I have just about a year before the wedding, because we all know how bad I am at knitting on schedule. :-(

I even, after my purchase, managed to knit on the shrug! I’m very pleased with the texture and softness, and I got to start the ribbing on the “far” end last night. Once the ribbing is done (about 2.5 more inches), then I do quick seams on each end to make the sleeves and then pick up stitches to start the neck ribbing. I had better get cracking on this one, because time is rapidly running out!! I still don’t think that I’ll have problems getting it done, but I had better use my time wisely.

My subconscious must be aware of this fact because I woke up at 3am this morning and couldn’t get back to sleep. Eventually, I got up and started a load of laundry and other general tidying tasks…

I have a feeling that I am going to crash around 4pm this afternoon…

Everybody have a fantastic day!

P.S. And I have confirmation from someone else who has knit with the Socks that Rock Medium Weight that it is very nice and I just must have gotten the one skein that wasn’t perfect. I was glad to hear that!!! Thanks, Judy!
