Weekend knitting

Big plans

Blossom has big plans for the day. And by big I mean mainly sleeping, grooming and a little light napping. She was thrilled to bits to discover a snazzy new blanket on the bed this morning. The fact that it is only a small blanket corner is neither here nor there it is clearly worthy of further inspection. 

I would dearly love to stay here too. A second cup of coffee has been consumed and the house is just starting to wake up around me. Time to move and get my jobs done for the day but despite Blossom's best attempts the blanket will be rolled away and will come with me. There will be enough cat hair integrated into this project during its lifetime without adding any more at this stage.

I know full well that by the time I come back to this spot later this afternoon Blossom will have barely moved- except for the aforementioned light grooming. In my next life I'd like to come back as a cat please. Or maybe I'll wait until cats have evolved opposable thumbs first. Not sure I could deal with all that napping without a little knitting to break it up.

Giddy with excitement

Oh happy day, joyous day. 

The fates have aligned and I have 2 completed deadline knits, I have new yarn to cast on and I have time on my hands - after the usual domestic bliss obviously.

Giddy with excitement I am fully intending to cast on All The Things and drink a lot of coffee.

First up is this fabulous skein from Countess Ablaze via The Classics Society which is destined to be something spectacular and shawl-like.

I also have new stripy sock yarn to cast on for a gift for a friend and I'm also contemplating casting on for a new sweater - I know - someone slap me. But 10 skeins of Blacker Yarns Illustrious DK have recently come into my possession and I'd love to make something spring-like and gorgeous to wear with jeans.

Right, putting the phone away now and settling in with the needles. If anyone want me I'll be right here - just bring fresh coffee in a couple of hours.
