Bags, Cats, Grandsons...and Knitting? Huh?

Lately, Wednesday night almost feels like Friday - it's the end of the week from the standpoint of the time the grandson stays with me! We stopped tonight at a park and he played on the playground equipment for a bit. It was a lovely spring afternoon and he deserved a chance to do something little boys do (this nana has been without kids so long, there's not much for him to do at my house!).

And I worked more on the Log Cabin Blanket while we watched the news. Tomorrow is Knit Night, so I had to get it to the point of starting a new color and having the next color planned to take with me. All is set for that.

And then bags are done...these are for a woman who LOVES butterflies (I know, you couldn't possibly tell, now could you?).
This is the most realistic butterfly print I've seen in a long time...in the Mera "purse" size...
and this one, I'm in love with myself, partly because I love all the colors in it, but also because lavender butterflies are the symbol of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus...

Wednesdays are also better for the cats...especially The Meezer. She is not partial to little boys...

I don't like the flash either, Mommie

What? No Flash?

Then I'll just stick my tongue out at you on general principle...

(sigh)
She does have attitude, doesn't she?

The next post may well be after my knitting trip to Chateau Morrisette in Floyd on Saturday. Approximately 20 of the Virginia Fiber Folk on Ravelry are converging to spend the day touring the winery, eating lunch there (and tasting wine), and knitting (I'm taking something really, really simple to knit!), then on down to Greenberry House in Meadows of Dan...for fiber and antiques...

And of course on Tuesday next week, we head off to Charlotte NC to meet/hear the Yarn Harlot.

I don't know when I've been so caught up in such wonderful fibery pursuits! And I will fill you in and take lots of photos, I promise!

And I finally get to meet Kimberly! I am so excited...we've been "online pals" for a bit...

Meezer looks so cute with her little tongue sticking out! Sometimes Scheyer will sleep with his tongue sticking out. I wish I could get a picture of that. :)

Have a great trip!

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.
