Not so Knitty?

I haven't been able to be as knitty as I would like lately. I've missed more knitting group meetings than I would like and have had less time to knit. A house/home is a jealous mistress that gobbles up your time.

I have been knitting on the Baby Blanket however.

As you can see I passed the halfway point. This is an easy project-really quite mindless and much more impressive looking than it actually is. It's great TV Knitting.
Here's a close-up of the unblocked transition point. It's just switching the side you are doing stockinette versus reverse stockinette.

I went to a pool party for my knitting group yesterday and this cat getting into Heather's bag was the only thing I took any pictures of. He would not leave that bag alone.
It reminded me of another kitty you may already be familiar with-he likes to get into small spaces too. This was taken last night after we got home. If he were a lolcat-he would be the one saying I iz in your cablez-controlling your Tvez.

Happy Knitting!

We Moved!

We are done moving!!!! We are almost unpacked, too, but the fixing up and the realities of home ownership are just beginning.

Kitty made sure he came with us.

I is in your boxez.

The Chuppah made the trip as well and work has recommenced on it. It's only the top 8 lines that are new, 4 set-up rows for increasing to 350 stitches for the middle motif. It's a tree pattern that symbolizes the tree of life. It's a 52 row repeat. That's 350 stitches times 52 rows for a total of 18,200 stitches for just that section.
Here's the entire beast.

Don't worry, kitty made the trip!
His namesake, Big Papi, though not participating in the Home Run Derby or the All-Star game, though he was voted in as the DH, was on TV tonight with his big smile.

All I have to say is Holy Hamilton!

Happy Knitting!

Happy 4th of July!

I am down on Chappaquiddick once again and I am on the family computer and completely without a camera or anything.

Happy Independence Day to all my American readers, and happy 4th of July to everyone else. No matter what you are doing this day, Happy Knitting!

I am also celebrating that in 199 days, 20 hours and 18 minutes or so, this country will no longer be saddled with George W. Bush as its "leader."

I randomly ran across a cute gift shop/yarn store in Falmouth today and took home, well, only to my car so far, three luscious skeins in a turquoise color (it was not the worsted and not the lace-I had never seen this weight before!). It will make a pretty scarf for me or some other pretty. I know they had the mishap and such and were not producing, so I snatched this up as I could. Here's hoping something good knitting related happens to you too today.

Happy Knitting!
