Some Days....

... I really wish I was a cat.Those two really seem to have it made.

I figured after the wedding, things would start to go back to slow down a little and I'd have some more time on my hands.

But I've started making a list of all the things I want to do in the next few weeks and ... well it's isn't going to be much slower! And I can't believe July is almost over already - can I ask what happened to June?

I did manage to take a little time for myself over the last week and I completed two more rows on the Crackghan:
I've included Tux for scale - as you can see it's really growing! It's 33 inches long now - so just a wee bit more than half way there! This is a great stress relieving knit - so I expect to be working on it a lot more...

I also knit a little more on my Peacock Dragon shawl yesterday, and I might have accidentally cast on for another pair of socks (It wasn't my fault - the yarn was sitting there taunting me) I'll try to get photos up over the next couple of days.

I love the crackghan! That is a work of art.

Looks like Tux made himself at home on some other knitting, lol!

Don't you hate it when yarn taunts you? That's why I have mine in plastic boxes or it would all make me crazy.

Love the Crackghan! I wish I had the patience to do something like that.

Most days a cat's life looks pretty good! My cat moves from one sunny spot to the next sleeping most of the day.

If she could figure out how to climb the cupboard and open the treats bag herself, Zulu'd really have it made!

I want to be a cat every day - what a life!

The crackghan is looking good!

Oh wow! I can't believe how big it has gotten! How long have you (months wise, not actual time) have you been working on it?

That crackghan is so tempting! I may have to try one of my own. (There's a perfect storm of new babies due this fall, so must get knitting baby things!)

Also. How does one add a cat for scale? Can you just plop him in frame, or does he have to add himself or it won't stick?

I have crackghan envy. It's a work of art.
