And, she also managed to make me feel much better about my chronic startitis.

So I've cast on another pair of socks even though I have 4 on the needles already! Ha! I even bought some more needles.

Worst Blogger Ever


I can't seem to keep this thing updated. Let's try out posting some pics instead.

This is Inara, AKA Nart, Nara Bug, Narwhal, Narababybuggaboo, "helping" with my Cat Cozy photo shoot. She's very helpful.

Sickness has descended onto our house which is a perfect excuse for sitting in front of the TV all day, snuggled in blankets and knitting. I'm knocking out a few holiday gifts, so it is perfectly legitimate. Nevermind the fact that the kitchen is about to be declared a biohazard and the bedroom looks like something off that show Hoarders.

Still no knitting?

We had a good Holiday and are trying to get back int o the groove of things. Today, that means trying to finish laying the floor in the hallway. It's not fun, but I'll be glad when it's finished. I plan to block off some serious knitting time this week, though. Really. I mean it.

Poor neglected blog

Wow. I would love to say I have been productive in the last few months while I ignored knitting and blogging, but alas, I wasn't. I am mostly done with my tax classes, so other that the holidays (which I prefer to ignore anyway), I have some time until January when the tax season begins.
I hope to finally photograph and get all my FOs posted on Etsy. Cat bed business is dead, so I may revamp that, too. I've way too much yarn and not enough time. It's not like I've ever prioritized cleaning the house, but I need to find balance.

Weekend and Classes Starting

Not much knitting lately. Friday some friends and I attempted to paint the nursery for our dear friend, Karen. We got everything out of the room, the walls patched and primed, and that's about it. We left her house in chaos and I hope she forgives us. You know what they say about good intentions.

Saturday we stayed at home and I did knit another Noro Sea Urchin hat. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/sea-urchin-2#
I'll try to get pics up tomorrow.

I've taken a break from the stash wrangle and saw many people I care about over the weekend. I'll resume the stash diving by Wednesday, I'm sure.

I have started Yet another Noro Striped Scarf, the second. It's blue. Pics, I promise.

In the meantime, I knit about a row on an old cat bed, a couple of rows on a bag I'd forgotten about, and no overwhelming progress on the other 18 projects on the needles.

My tax classes start tomorrow, so another thing to come between me and my knitting time! This darn job getting in the way of my leisure. I should pull up some pdfs on Html so I can have something to look at in class if I need distraction. I need to brush up so I can get this blog on the spiffy train.

Along with my Noro obsession, I've acquired a chocolate covered strawberry one, too. I made a second batch tonight. Too easy and so tasty. Bad combo!
