... I mean shawl.
As I alluded to in my last post - I've have been knitting, but it has been made a little difficult by a certain someone who insists on claiming my WIPs for his own. If he'd actually complete a row or two I probably wouldn't mind so much, but he just wants to sleep on them - that's hardly what I'd call "productive." He also does this with books I want to read, papers I need and even groceries I want to unpack.
Oddly, Rocky isn't the kind of cat who steals your seat every time you get up.
That's Tux's job"Who me??"
Yeah you, Chubsy. He especially likes to do this with Dave and the computer chair.
Oh, and remember how I said I was so glad that I got Peno to sit on my lap a few weeks ago? I was so proud of her, overcoming her fears.... yeah she overcame them alright.
Now I can't sit down without her jumping into my lap!
Anyway, enough about the cats - back to knitting. I was hoping to finish up my STR silkie shawl this weekend, but as noted above, someone had prior claim. I did a little knitting on Dave's socks, but mostly I worked on a new design for our new yarn.
The new yarn is an sport weight alpaca/silk blend which we are calling "Sophisticat". Hopefully both the design and the yarn will be available by the end of the month.
Tonight's knitting has been put on hold in favour of a new book. And while I was in the book store, I stopped by the knitting section. I almost bought Vampire knits. Most of the patterns are lame, but I love this oneThe Lore Cardigan.
I guess I better get knitting!
