Serious Catch-Up

I'm sorry for the long silence--late last week, life threw a serious curve ball that interrupted normal activities. So here are some overdue cat pictures.

I like this picture of Pippin--he looks very somber.

I interrupted George's bath.

And Eve has claimed yet another plastic bag.

In knitting news, I made a hat for Anne.

I really like the way it turned out.

And finally, in sewing news, I am a dumbass.

Remember that dress I'm making, the one where I womanfully admitted publicly to having tried to squeeze a dress out of too little fabric? It turns out I was wrong. I had plenty of fabric. What was my problem? I forgot that I was making the shorter of the two skirt options. D'oh! All better now.

Tonight I cut out my interfacing (after a quick trip to Hancock, because I really didn't have enough interfacing), transferred all the necessary marks to the fabric, and read the directions. Tomorrow I may actually sew--after I do a little research and learn what instructions like "easestitch" and "catchstitch" mean.

Oh, and I nearly forgot! My Sock Roulette sock (the one I knitted) has been received. Go here to see it! I'm really looking forward to getting my package (with the sock I didn't knit). I know it's on its way, and I'm really excited.

What curve ball?

Also, those are cute cats. I miss them.

That is an excellent hat! I love it. And I love the sly little smile on Anne's face.

I'm glad you gave the dress fabric a time out so it would behave. Can't wait to see it. Can't wait to see your sock too.

Love, Mom

Pretty kitties!

I'm so glad to see everyone enjoying the Sock Roulette. Hope you get something fantastical (but, you know, not too fantastical) in the mail.

It's coming! I mailed it eleven days ago, but it's got a long way to go.

If you're really busting to know, leave a comment and I'll fess up who I am!

Hi, Anonymous Sock Buddy! Don't tell me who you are--I love surprises! I'm sure it'll get here this week. :)
