The End of the World as I Know It...I think 5 day weekends should be the norm. :) During my 'fall break,' I planned to get a good deal done on both mosaic and on several other languishing projects. This (mostly) did not happen. Why?
Don't let that innocent look fool you...
Cricket is approximately 2.5 years old. For her first 2.499999999999 years, she was emphatically anti-lap. Didn't want to sit ON you, just right next to you. Although I love to snuggle with a warm fuzzy kitty, I learned to love the snuggle NEXT to me pose... much more condusive to things like knitting, and using the bathroom, and being able to answer the phone. For whatever reason, however, the last week or so has seen the emergence of an entirely new monster... Cricket has decided that, on the whole, she wants to spend as much time as possible sitting on my chest. NOT on my lap, you understand- oh no, that would enable me to potentially knit! No, she sits on the floor by the couch, looking up at me, until I lie back against the arm of the couch. Then she strikes- and neatly pins me down for HOURS. No hope of moving. To make the victory complete, she PURRS. Usually right under my chin so I can really hear her.
I did manage to do a few things over my vacation- I baked bread:
(I LOVE bread dough. It's such a beautiful color and texture...)
I finished the first strip of mosaic... I also bought more yarn.... I realized I want each strip to be 4 rectangles, and for there to be a total of 5 strips (making the finished blanket approximately 5 feet by 4.5 feet)... and I think I would have had enough yarn... but then I remembered that whole seaming thing, and realized I needed some extra yarn. Luckily, they even still had the same dyelot, and so I was able to pick up more with no problem. I also bought yarn to make a baby sweater for some dear friends in California- well, the children of some dear family friends.
When Cricket wasn't busy tackling me and pinning me to the couch, she soaked up some autumn sun:
