.. and back to the knitting.
The company I work for has a large network of offices south of the border. As such, I have a colleague based in San Diego, who's role is very similar to mine. Despite being more than 4,000 km apart, we work quite closely (ah the wonders of the internet age!). We are very close in age, are both cat people, and I like her very much
On December 21st, she gave birth to her first child - a little girl. I've been planning on knitting a blanket for a while, but with Christmas, I'd decided to put it off until after the baby was born. A blanket is not like a sweater - it's going to take a little longer for baby to outgrow it.
Kittens and Butterflies, though I've modified it a little. The pattern isn't charted, and my brain has problems following long written out directions.
I'm knitting it in some Patons Weekender Cotton mom gave me a while back. Not only is it nice and washable, since babies are gross - but I figured it was more ideal for the Californian climate.
I just hope it can keep my interest now that I'm through with the kittens...
In other feline news - after eight years, someone has decided she's a mighty huntress.
Dave's been getting mad at her for opening the cupboards under the kitchen sink (because of course, she never closes them when she's done). He was convinced she was after the garbage. I was pretty sure she was looking for mice, but he didn't want to believe me.
I guess she's getting a big apology when he gets home.
