ballbands and cats

i completed what will be the first of many of these, i can just feel it.... the ballband dishcloth in Mason Dixon Knitting. this was such a fun item to knit and once i knit a few "bands" it became somewhat mindless but still a lot of fun and very enjoyable. i did make one mistake on this one and it was due to my inability to count correctly. there should be two more bands and i had such high hopes for those bands, there were to be bright pink. however in my wondrous counting ability i managed to miscount not once, not twice but yes three times... don't ask. anyways, i plan on giving this one to my mom, regardless of the missing bands, she'll love it!

so last night something really gross happened. but it was so funny that both chris and i thought that i needed to share this story. we were watching tv and i was knitting, another show was about to start and the two of us were chit chatting when all of a sudden morris, our indoor/outdoor kitty, came into the room jumped up on top of the tv, and started that noise... whech whech whech... and then out came his little tongue and then out came his dinner... all down the front of the tv, the tv stand, all the components, and then found it final resting place on the brand new carpet. it was so gross... yet so funny in the same breath. he just jumped up there and it was like he was announced, "hey guys, i'm going to be sick but instead of doing it upstairs in the dark where you will find it barefooted when you go to bed, i'll do it right here in front of you on this thing you're looking at so that you can clean it up right away!" this might be one of those things where the statement "you had to be there" applies, sorry if it is... we just both thought it was really funny. for those of you wondering if morris is ok, he's just fine, he sometimes eats too fast then looses his dinner, it seems to be normal for him to do this.

plans for today, shopping and a small meeting later this afternoon. then the rest of the weekend, i plan on sewing a few more curtains for the bedroom (photos of that project to follow soon) and then on sunday i'm hosting a small knit & stitch get together which should be enjoyable!

Wow, that's lovely! I love the texture of knitting...

Your kitty story is hilarious. It's as if he decided to put a show on for you two. I don't know, at least he was polite about letting you know where it would be...
