First hot and then soggy. In fact, I went to run errands today and I swear every time I got off a bus or left a train station it started raining.. HARD. But trudge on I did. Went to see about some more yarn for a second Shimmer but I decided against it because my pants were soaked from the knee down. Lovely. I made another OSW using some WoolEase I had laying around and this is the result:
It’s a little too small. In fact, it’s so small it fits my 8 year old. Don’t ask. I could have sworn it was on gauge. But she loves it and that’s all that matters. Speaking of children, thought I’d show you some pics of us at the 23rd Annual Dominican Day Parade, 2005.
We had a ball, and then it proceeded to rain on us. Been sniffling and sneezing ever since. Ugh.
I know I promised some better Shimmer pics but that will have to wait. Instead I’ve got update pics of Catwoman and her little brood. All nine babies are still with us, growing up so fast!! 1 week old :
Mama is a little stir crazy from being cooped up in the nest nursing all the time. I let her out and she started chewing my shirt. Poor thing. Even animals can get post partum depression, I guess. Don’t tell that to Tom Cruise though. I’m sure he’d have a field day refuting that idea.
So, back to the knitting, you say. Next on the needles? Probably some felted potholders(remember the lavendar easter egg-dyed-yarn from the previous post? yeah.) Striped with some VERY bright Kool Aid red(2 packs strawberry one pack orange!). And perhaps a pair of socks.
It’s getting cooler little by little. Almost time to show of Shimmer and OSW in public. Maybe I’ll even have pics of that. And…
I’m a-going on a cruise! Well, not an extravagant one in the Caribbean(I wish). Knitty’s 3rd Anniversary is coming up and The Point is throwing a mini-cruise to celebrate it! Knitters from all over the Tri-state area will be coming into the city to enjoy a few hours of knitting camraderie. I can’t wait!!!
