I thought I had it.....

I found some nice, soft, lace, a couple of great patterns, and decided to go for it. It worked for about 5 hours until I got frustrated, the sun came out, and the garden was calling.
Lace.....ripped. Maybe some other day.

So, the moral is, no knitting again this week, just a futile attempt at something that didn't work out.
Maybe next time.

it's been a long......LONG week

and not a bit of knitting......
This week, this little darling decided to have a tummyache.
A very worrysome and expensive tummyache. It resulted in 4 trips to the vet, a credit card that's still smoking, and a cat innard education I would have rather not needed. It was touch and go there for a while, but, in the end, it turned out to be a "mystery tummyache" (thankyouverymuch), and she's now back to running around the house like her normal self.  The vet says it was the barium that did it. I think I just spent enough money for the universe to give up.
All in all, it turned out OK and the folks at the vets (all of them), are totally in love with her. That IS what it's all about, right?

There was also some really sad and disturbing news regarding a friend and pilates client, but I won't go into that here....suffice to say, life is short. You just never know what will happen in the blink of an eye.

I did spend a rainy day looking for some inspiration. I found some really nice scrumptious lace (that really is the name of it), and I'm ready to cast on for a celtic shawl.
I'm also looking at making a cabled blankie for the back of the couch. Just waiting for the right sale at the craft store. I know, acrylic.....but with dogs and cats, you gotta be able to wash it, and it has to wear like iron, so acrylic it is.

Next week, knitting, I promise.

not a stitch has been knit....

for at least a couple of weeks.
The weather has been just too good to be inside knitting, and by the end of the day, I'm just too tired to even think about it.
Maybe this week........we'll see (now that the bark project has been finished)

I'll leave you with a baby miss kitty pic....
hard to believe she's been here almost a year. We picked her up right after the 4th of july, a year ago.
