Friday and Saturday Take Too Long

cows and heels 014Well, they do when hubby isn't here. I have no friends. Boo. I wrote a nice long blurb about the knitblogging community, my question to you all is: should I post it here or on my LiveJournal? If you all don't want to read it I don't want to make you scroll through the whole thing just to get to the knitting content. It's about 2 pages (front and back) handwritten.

Anyways. The night my hubby left I was immediately bored. Instead of knitting though, I decided to clean. I reorganized my knitting bags. In that process, I cows and heels 005realized my DPNs needed a home. And my 40" circulars for magic looping. Basically, I needed a place to keep my sock needles that would keep them from ending up all over my purse. So, I spent about two or so hours trying to remember how I made that case for my Secret Pal. Too bad only one of the 20 or so pictures I took came out well. The fabric on the outside says "Moo..." on it, the inside has cow print fabric. I'll try to get some good pics of the inside, this one will have to do for now. It only has two rows of pockets, one for my DPNs and one for my circulars. The only circs I have in there are my sock circs (sizes 2.5mm and 3.00mm) and some size 4 and 6 circs. The 4s are from making Knucks. It's a nice compact size that fits in my purse, and it folds up like a little book. Now I think I need to make a small sock knitting bag out of my leftovers. Noticing my theme yet? The needle udder, the cow notion bag, cow measuring tape, and now the DPN case. :D

Also, I finished my second Monkey sock. I love them, I'm wearing them right now, even though I have no reason to be. The shoes I put on for these pics are my favorites, except that they are totally unreasonable. I've never worn them anywhere. They are sexy and fun, and complete punishment. Okay, my brain is officially done for the night, so I'll post later.

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!
