Yes, it's that time of year again and this year I got my Christmas present a little early from the man in my life. I jumped up and down, clapped my hands, and then did a little happy dance with the box. I know, I'm way too easily excited.
Since I've recently got back into my fiber arts hobbies when he asked me what I wanted this year, my first response was "roving." Of course, he isn't much of a yarn/fiber guy, so I did help him navigate through my favorite websites so that he knew what would be good to get. Of course he got to pick out the colors, and ooooh he did so good this year.
Of course, I also have my 2 other Works in Progress laying around the house should I finish the handspun scarf and need something to work on.
I'm definitely past the halfway point as far as yarn is concerned. I plan on knitting until I run out of handspun, and then blocking it out. Hopefully I'll finish with it tonight assuming my new kitty will let me knit.
On Saturday we went down to the local SPCA and I brought home one little bundle of love. Nothing better than a cat that wants to be in your lap or at your side 24/7. Even when I'm sleeping at night he feels the need to be either on top of me, right next to me, or under the covers with me. It really is adorable. My older cat is definitely not this snuggly, so I'm enjoying the little guy being around.
I think I'll leave you with a picture of the little guy before I get back to work on the scarf. ;)
