Chin Up

I missed my Momma one day so I crawled up on her and we had a little photo shoot. 

Don't you just love how I have a hint of color on my chin? It took Momma a couple of days to notice it when I moved in.

Anyways Momma wanted you to know she is still knitting on Daddy's sweater. She suffers from hating-to-knit-sleeves syndrome. Now she just knits the sleeves early on and comes back to knit the body later. That way she can save the best for last(ish).

That Momma is pretty good at figuring out some things. Now she feeds me before we go to bed so I don't get so peckish in the morning and wake her up too early. I'm gonna wake her up tomorrow anyways though. Shhh don't tell her!

Jack was right

Momma will drape Daddy's sweater in progress over you if you crawl up on her lap and ask nice.

Daddy wanted a red sweater but picked out this nice red wine color. Does it bring out my nice orange highlights?

Wool knits into such a nice fabric. I feel just the right temperature for a nap. It is ever so hard taking care of Momma and Daddy. I think I just earned some treats don't you?

Momma watched a Doctor Who marathon, she still thinks 10 is her favorite. Auntie Lizard still likes 12 better. I am undecided... guess I need more lap time to decide.

Yarn Crawling

We may have moved across the country from my favorite yarn festival, but I still know how to find yarn. Burt was right you gotta stretch before these events!

I hit seven of the 13 stores over four days and enjoyed myself. Burt did not go with me to a single one?! He did however find some of the yarn interesting and tried to carry it around the house but did not get very far.

Yep that is a lot of socks to be, and a cowl and a pair of mittens for my sister. Oh there is a two color shawl to be in there on the left too. I got quite a few local dyers and one lovely purple skein of Handmaiden Casbah. Yep I finally found Casbah. I melted like butter when I touched it. I was strong enough to walk away and look at some other yarns before running back to pick out the original purple that caught my eye and touched my soul. What? I get a tad dramatic about yarn, ya'll know that. I'll save the actual loot listing for another day. Me? I've got some yarn to pet.
