Well Trained OwnerLast night, Cricket, my kitty, taught me a new trick. Notice I don't say, or even imply, that I taught her... we all know who serves whom when a cat is involved! Last night, she finally got me to understand what I needed to do to play her game. Quite simply, when she brings me her ball of yarn, carried in her mouth like a triumphantly captured trophy, and drops said yarn by my feet, I am to pick up the yarn, wind it back into a tidy little ball, and throw it across the room for her enjoyment. Luckily, she had a witness for this whole thing, or else no one would believe that she had actually trained her human so well! ;)
I am a few rows away from finishing the back of Ocean. I wanted to start on the sleeves and test whether I like the cuffs knit in black chenille, but I need another skein of chenille so I can double up. Not to be incredibly cheap, but I'm waiting for the store's weekly ad (and 40% coupon) to come out before I pick up another skein... hey, it might only be a few $$, but every little bit will help over the next 18 months- I figure I'm looking at a law school debt well in excess of 135k. OUCH!!! I'm still debating trying to get a weekend job... but then again, I already do so much as it is... perhaps I would be better off enjoying my free time. But the belt is definitely tightening around my wallet... after all, not only do I have to put away as much money as possible, but I also have to have the funds available to support my yarn habits! LOL!
The Latin phrase for today:
