I know, I know, I've been pretty sporadic about the blogging lately. With a new job, frantic finishing of secret knitting, and my upcoming LSAT (I think I'm insane, I must be, because all my lawyer buddies tell me you have to be to apply to law school, but I want to go so badly, I'm doing it anyway), I haven't had much time to devote to projects that lend themselves to posting about. On the bright side, I just finished all the frogging and knitting on said secret project (Jacque, you're gonna love it!). And I haven't been led astray by any knitty people with excellent fashion sense. Unlike, say, the time chemgrrl tempted me into checking out a site with wonderful clothes, including this bat dress.
Yeah. It's a summer dress. With bats. How am I supposed to resist?
Then, there are the kittens. This is their new favorite toy, a cat scratchie with a ball. Morgana is all happy and perky, which makes me very happy because we had a bit of a scare this morning. You see, Mr. Batty saw her running out of the bathroom like she was being chased, and he noticed that she was pursued by something she thought she'd buried... attached to her butt with a strand of my hair. Of course, I freaked out, because I was afraid my hair was going to cause a blockage in her little kitten tummy. So tomorrow, I'm getting a haircut. I love my kittens, I want them to be OK!
See the little make-up bag sitting on top of the lime green monstrosity? It's part of my birthday gift from the fabulous Rosi. It turns out her birthday is a day before mine, and we decided to do a gift swap.
I'm extremely happy with my gift! Even before I read the sticky note that was attached to the make-up bag, I thought, "Oooh, it's the perfect project bag!" -- and that's exactly what she had intended it for. It's a sock knitting bag, not a make-up bag, and it even has a compartment for notions! I also got some wonderful soap that looks like she made it herself and smells wonderful, candy in a future stitch marker box, and yarn. Pretty purple yarn, in mohair and in alpaca. I'm thinking either a hat and a scarf, or a hat with both yarns held together. We'll see.
That's it for today, but I promise to get back to you soon with pictures of some actual knitting. I just got the yarn for Eunny Jang's Tangled Yoke Cardigan. It's pretty!
