I have no clue where to begin. It's Halloween! Which is good. Except there is a show I want to go to tonight, badly. The problem is that, I'm not sure we can get tickets. And well, it's Halloween and we have kids! Responsibility bites some days.

kitty hat 001Yesterday, I was all happy. I finished Scott's hat, and most of Aunt Marcie's slipper socks. The socks though...disaster. One of the i-cords (I did two 20" long strips instead of one 36") fused to itself! Now I have to make another and re-full it. Also, the socks themselves need to go back in. They are 12 inches instead of 9.5! That was kinda upsetting. Really, I am not even posting pictures of it right now.

Let's get back to that hat, that might cheer me up. I decided to forego the earflaps and ties. Even though I had already picked up the stitches and knit the flaps, started the i-cord, they just looked funny. For the ears, I made them larger than kitty hat 003the original pattern calls for. Because it's a man's head and all. Then I just knit stockinette stitch, slipping the first stitch and making the decreases 1 stitch in for a fairly solid border. There was no rolling!! I used cotton batting leftover from the quilted bag I made for Secret Pal 8 to stuff the ears. Finally, I crocheted a bit around the edge. Click the picture for better detail, they came out rather nicely. Now I just have to mail it out. Although, it sucks I missed being able to get it to him for Halloween.

Once I got a few things off the needles, I cast on another pair of Knucks. Matty's this time. I still hate the yarn. And I have decided that it's the yarn and not the needles. Oh well. My brother owes me a picture of his! Kyle is getting his for Christmas, so those won't be up for a bit. I'm gonna give Matty his before he leaves, and I'll get the photo! Actually, I need to pick up a camera.

So, I'm sort of excited about making Bamboozelle. Mostly because the yarn is soooo gorgeous (I love Bamboo!) and I just bought a bead to put on it. It's a gorgeous glass bead, I'll have to give you pictures later. Just not feeling up to it. Still sick too. Yuck. Alright, well I need to get to work on these Knucks. Or maybe I'll actually finish the final cuff for Marcie's socks.

Kitty's Story

Vintage 008

First, I must confess my name isn't Kitty, or anything even close. It just comes from an affinity for cats. Second, I love to craft, create, and imagine. I can draw a bit, knit a lot, and sew just enough to get by. My world revolves around the loves of my life; my three children. Anything more you want to know about me is on Ravelry or check me out on FB!
