Crap...

... this day's all shot to hell!

First I worked late, then decided to stop to pick up a few things at the grocery store, which turned into a full blown grocery shopping venture. By the time I got home, put the groceries away, fed the cats, fed myself and attended to all my email and blog comments, I looked at the clock and holy crap - it's 8 p.m.

By the time I finish blogging, put out the garbage, make tomorrow's lunch, and have a bath - it's going to be bed time.

Which means, I have nothing of my own to show you - but I do have some one else's pretty knitting to share:These were done by Mom in our Stray Cat yarn. Stray Cat is an eight-ply sport weight yarn - a little heavier than a fingering, but lighter than a DK. It's obviously great for baby items, but as you can see it's awesome for socks too - these are so soft and squishy - I wish you could touch them.

And the best part - they knit up faster than fingering weight socks!!! I'm totally dying up some for the big-footed men in my life!

There are six colours in the shop right now, and you can expect more soon.

In other yarn news, we finally got our shipment of Alley Cat base, so look for some new Alley Cat colours in the coming weeks!

I hate when the day gets away from me like that.

Your Mom's socks turned out very cute.

I took my knitting out last night, then it sat on the sofa, and I put it away before bedtime. Didn't get to touch a stitch either!

Love your Ma's socks! That color -- I'm partial to green. Gotta love sock yarns that knit up fast. :)

I hate grocery shopping! You go in for a couple of things, and before you know it, the cart is full!
Nice socks! I knit socks for my son in 6-ply, they went fast too. I like the color very much, but I'm not going to look at your shop updates for a while! ;o) Because I'm very weak...

I have days like that and I don't even have a job. For what it's worth, I'm always in awe of how much you get accomplished.

You're not getting anywhere near my socks.
