One step forward, twelve steps back

15 March, 2008 at 3:24 pm (caturday, FO, knitting)

So I’m really going eleven steps backwards. Which is why there has been no blogging, because I am getting nothing done.

I did whip up a hat for my mum’s birthday:

(here on Ravelry)

and she likes it quite a bit. It matches the mini clap I made out of malabrigo ages ago, which I never wear, so I gave that to her as well.

I also spent a couple of hours putting these adorable things together.

They just need buttons now.

But what’s really causing me agony is my sweater jacket.

I have ripped and reknitted this thing so many times by now. And I still think I may need to frog the whole thing and start again. Or maybe cast on for something new while I try to figure out what the hell I’m doing.

Whatever, you’re here for the Caturday, right? 😉 Well, we have a new member of the family, and it looks like she’s sticking around for a while.


This pretty little kitty (who is actually huge–she should weigh 15-20 pounds once we get her up to a normal weight) is technically still our foster kitty, but my mum has fallen in love with her, and we may not be able to give her up again. She doesn’t have a name at the moment, although it seems everyone has an idea: mum likes Inertia, dad likes Velocity. I’m all for calling her Velociraptor. All suggestions welcome.

    Gorgeous cat! She looks like she has a milk mustache. I’d call her Shiraz.

    Oh, she’s so cute! But in a slightly evil, “You lose, Mr. Bond ha ha ha” sort of way.

    I like the name Inertia better. It sounds more feminine. She is a beautiful cat. I love the milk mustache.

    CAN I HAVE HER!? I WANT HER! 😦 I WANT A KITTY! NO FAIR YOU HAVE TWO KITTIES AND I ONLY HAVE…ZERO. THAT’s RIGHT. NONE.

    She looks like a Czarina to me. That “I WILL RULE JOO” face is what gives me said impression.
