So, the other day Miss Kathy said that this sweater I was working on looked like a squid. I wanted to let her know that while a knitted squid might be fun, it's not on my design menu at the moment. This, however, IS. This is Williamstown pullover with no name, will be in the Valley Yarns holiday catalog I think (you can ask Kirsten or someone about that though, I have no clue). I can't even link to the yarn, it's THAT new. Not even on the website yet. But there it is, and although I really hated it yesterday we're more in like today. Finishing now, and then blocking and handing over to the powers that be.
Now, we all need to expect some rather sporadic and frantic blogging for the next couple of weeks. See, Evil Girl (who's father obviously lost a screw somewhere) came home with THIS, Ollie (Olive or Oliver?? I lean toward Olive myself, but more will be revealed as it grows.) the Infant Felid-Person. I am not a cat person at all. But it's an infant and it needs a mother. So I clean it's face after it dines, and I let it suck it's milk (KMR really) out of my hand if it's feeling lazy, and I play with it, and let it lap me face and I snuggle it and nuzzle it as if I am licking it's fur clean, and I even helped it to go potty. By the way - it is an excellent pottier. Loves the litter pan at four weeks of age, what's not to love about this animal? Oh, yeah, it's a CAT. Easy to forget this with it's wide blue eyes and soft little paws and sweet mewing sounds...for reference this is one skein of Artyarns Ultra 4. It thinks it's a real cat. It's little cabesa is about 1" across from ear to ear. Don't tell a soul, but I think it's rather cute, really. It's got the littlest feet and the skinniest rat-tail. Yesterday it looked quite dehydrated and was very lethargic for a kitten. Today it is a fiest when awake and dead to the world when asleep, just like a baby should be. And when it's ready to sleep? It just crashes, bang, splat. No warning. Just WONK, done. Really very adorable.
