Half Over Already?

I cannot believe how fast the weekends fly by! It's been a busy Saturday, starting with a routine stop for bloodwork at my doc's office - I get to see my favorite "red-headed vampire," as he's the only one who can sneak blood out of my tiny vein (um..yes, there's only 1 good one left, folks!) without bruising me. This is because he used to work for my vet - taking blood out of kitties hind legs. Those veins are tinier even than mine...So we got that out of the way for the next 2 months...I had some other errands to run, and then got back to the house to cut 4 bags and begin working on them. There was laundry, you know the drill? Running up and down stairs to move things from washer to dryer to folding in between sewing a seam, pinning things together and such...

Then my friend Lynette and I again performed a repeat of last weekend: dinner at Panera Bread (I have created a monster, it's the only place she wants to eat now!) and then back here to knit. I wanted to use my Addi Turbos and so picked up the skein of Navy Wool-Ease left over from my first lace shawl (I can't believe it's been two years since I made my first shawl!) and cast on for a hat.

I was able to give Lynette her Mavis bag (just a little late for her birthday last weekend, but I'm not sure what gift it was - birthday? Christmas? Thank you for saving my data when my computer crashed? Anyway, this is Koneko Kitty by Alex Henry. I just love this fabric! (Lynette did, too!)

When I ran by the post office today, there was a package from Kimberly. She'd said she was sending me something to help me through losing my BB. Well, I was very surprised, and touched, when I opened the package to find The Opinionated Knitter by Elizabeth Zimmerman! This has been on my wishlist since it came out! Kimberly sweetly inscribed the book to me as a remembrance to the loss of BB.

Well, it just means so much to me! Thank you Kimberly. I'm looking foward to spending a lot of time in these pages. You're such a sweet friend to realize I need something engrossing to help work thru the grief. And EZ's quote on page 5 "Knit on, with confidence and hope, through all crises."

I surely will.
Right above the book, you'll see my second heart patterned dishcloth is 1/2 way done...with more cotton waiting...

And finally Chris showed Chaos' bare belly, so everyone else is doing the same. I was pretty sure that The Meezer had decided it would be a cold day in a very hot place before I was allowed to snap a shot of her very fuzzy underneath. Well...


she was lying on the rug in front of me as I knit tonight and I had the camera hidden next to me. Stealth won out. I'm not positive she knew I took the photo!

Tell the Meezer that she has a beautiful kitty tummy.. The bag is beautiful and your hat is really coming along for just casting it on last night. I love making hats - they're quick & easy.

The Meezer, of course, has a very regal belly. So furry! Chaos must be embarrassed!

Namaste

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.
