Bad Kitty

I’ve been making pretty steady progress on my 2nd Embossed Leaves sock:

I’ve been knitting on it monogamously for the past several days. It’s amazing how quickly knitting grows when you work on one project at a time! That used to be the only way I knit, then slowly I got enticed by more and more projects and pretty soon–well, you know the rest.

So I got home from my knitting group a little while ago, ready to start thinking about dinner and the other mundane at-home activities one must pay attention to when not knitting. I put down my keys, then walked into the dining/living room to put away my knitting bag. That’s when I saw it.

Looks like my cat Spike got into the potted plants again. He does this on occasion when he’s bored or frustrated.

Today he must have been really pissed.

I understand. Today was a beautiful day, he wanted outside, and no one was around to open the door for His Royal Feline-ness.

The worst part is that I watered those plants yesterday. So it’s not just some dry dirt to sweep up. It’s wet, and HRF left muddy little footprints all over the house. I keep finding paw prints in interesting places; apparently he likes to go into the bathtub, circle around in the middle of our bed, and walk across the back of the couch.

Anyway, the plants are okay, I have a freshly-swept dining room floor, and there’s plenty of daylight left for him to whoop it up outside and out of my sight!

This is a little something I made this weekend for my friend’s daughter:

You can read more about it here on my new baking blog.

The recipient was the same little one I knit the kitty hat for a couple of weeks ago.

I think she likes it!

  1. What a lucky little Birthday Girl…..this could make you an official Auntie, in my opinion. I think Spike must have been jealous!

  2. I’m on day 1 of a diet, and your baking blog was a BAD thing to see! What amazing cakes, and that shortbread has got me chewing on my fingernails…
