Friday...Where Does the Time Go?

We've been a tad under the weather today, so it's been just the girls and me at home. I think we all had to recover a bit from the excitement of last weekend's cat show. The girls had to recover from being without me for 4 days! I was just tired.
The Meezer just didn't feel like a photo shoot, so The Blonde Bombshell cooperated instead. You can see that a certain Siamese "turned her tail" on me in the process!

I've done a bit of straightening, a bit of sorting and a bit of knitting.
This is the Blue Caron Simply Soft Lacy Prairie Shawl from Folk Shawls by Cheryl Oberle that I'm making to contribute to a good (local) cause at the end of the month. More about that later...And I've still got a ways to go in the knitting on this. I'm a member of the Folk Shawls group on Yahoo, but this pattern isn't the current KAL. It is, however, just about the easiest lace I've ever knit! And when I do charitable knitting, I want pretty and easy, combined. This is it! It's also my second time through this pattern, and the first one, a Victorian pink, is now being well-loved by it's recipient! In fact, I understand that the only time the 92-year-old-lady would agree to have it off was when her daughter promised her it would not be ruined by a wash! You just gotta love Simply Soft acrylic!

I also have meant to tell you about a blog contest going stop by Geraldine's and see what's up with The Mitz! (Just a hint - she's not a happy camper!) I just love Geraldine's blog...if you aren't finding knitting and crocheting going on, then it's The Mitz's antics or perhaps some of the best darn vegetarian recipes on the planet!

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and I hope by Monday we're all feeling in the pink again!

Shucks, sorry to hear you are under the weather. I am trying to look out for myself, as the weather just abruptly changed from hot to cold... do put your feet up and enjoy some knitting time.

I hope you feel better soon.

The blonde bombshell is very pretty!

The blue shawl is beautiful and I'm sure the charity will be very pleased to have such a beautiful item.

Have a great and restful weekend!

Hope you are feeling waaaaaaaaay better today Sallee. Nice pic. of the Blonde Bombshell! We love to see the Meezer but can certainly understand the 'turning up the tail' syndrome, it happens here, quite a bit, and sadly,only one tail to turn these days, sighhhh.

Thanks so much for the mention of my contest and blog. Ditto for yours, Knitnana ROCKS!!!!

Have a great day. Huggs, G
and Headbonks from the Mitz

The shawl looks very cozy. I just got the Folk Shawls since I am trying to brave lace- and I love the concept of the "oldest garment" comfort, etc.
feel better!

Hope you're feeling better! Hmm, is that a little Siamese kink at the end of the Meezer's tail?

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
