I've Been Knitting

Here is a sock out of new yarn that is expected any day. I really enjoyed knitting this one - I love the way to colors move around - hopefully, this yarn will be here by the end of this week!

Now this is my knit, knit, pet, pet project meaning I knit a row, knit a row, spread it out on my lap and pet it for a few minutes then I knit a row, knit a row. How many of you do that? Have you even noticed this crazy little habit? It's a Debbie Bliss Cabled Jacket out of super chunky Cashmerino. That's 27 rows of ribbing at the beginning on 94 stitches - yikes! This was almost enough to stop me in my tracks - I haven't knit a big project like this for ages. Sarah is knitting it too - in fact, we cast on together watching season 2 of Grey's Anatomy. I love Grey's Anatomy and was disappointed to learn that there won't be a new episode until January 12. Anyway....if you go here, you can see Sarah's progress on the same sweater in the same color. We had to decide on the same color so we could economize on the yarn.

This little monster is the reason that all our Christmas decorations came down and were put away on December 26. This is Panda who is our very curious, very cute, very annoying kitten. She has an identical sister named Oreo who is not nearly as much trouble.

I saw the picture of the kitten and thought it was my cat Oreo. Only difference is that my Oreo has a black dot of fur on his upper lip.
