Bad Kitty

Today started off just like every other Monday until I discovered that my keys were nowhere to be found. Turns out the hubby had them in his car and he was on the way to an appointment in Melbourne. So I called the boss and let them know I wouldn’t be in. Seems like I would have a nice day off right? Wrong, I had plenty to do, and most of it I could work on from here. So I have been working off and on today (not too hard though) and I figured out that while it is really cute, it is quite hard to work with a cat walking back and forth across the screen and occasionally stepping on the keyboard to be pet. This little kitty in question (Tipper) is in big trouble right now. Yesterday morning I found my Zune (a little 8G one we bought in July) in the bottom of the water dish. Apparently he wanted to play with the headphones and knocked it off the counter. Needless to say it’s not turning on. That means that most of my music is gone too since I use my work computer to sync it and I erase most of the stuff after as not to make the computer slow. I’m not too pleased with him right now, but then he curls up and goes to sleep, and this is my view. How can I stay mad at him?

So before I got to work this morning, I finally finished the soaker. It only took me a day to finish it, but I lost the pattern a little over a week ago so it was set aside. I do like how this came out, but it seemed so fiddly. There are just so many parts to it. I don’t know if I will make any more, or if I do, I don’t think I will do all the I-cord detail.

Baby Hat and Soaker Set
Yarn: Moda Dea Vision in Karma

Needles: 5.0mm Knit Picks Circular
Pattern: Baby Hat from Easy Baby Knits and Snapdragon Soaker
Date Finished: 8/11/2008

I also started a pair of socks since the Kindness socks were frogged. This is my Pagewood Farms Sock yarn that I got at the Orlando Needleworks Show last year. Hmm...I wonder if there is another one this year? I will have to check on that. I decided to knit the Pomatomus Socks since the Monkeys were such a big hit. Cookie A is a genius! They look gorgeous in this yarn since the color variations are very subtle. And if you noticed, the sock is on a wooden sock blocker. These came from Chappy’s Fiber Arts & Crafts. They did not have a beagle in the shop so after emailing the store, they were nice enough to draw one up and even send me a proof. I love them, although I didn’t expect them to be as large as they are. They fit my socks, but they just look smaller in pictures. So now I better get back to work (yea right).

That's a bummer about your zune, maybe it will work again after it has a chance to dry out. The soaker and hat are very cute and I really like the yarn you're using for the pomatomus.

Hope your zune works after it dries.
