Wednesday, May 23, 2007  


It has been quite the week(s). Good news is that I'm almost done with the furniture refinishing, my roommate has moved out (boo!), and S is moving in (yeah!). But that has meant lots of time with various types of organizational/cleaning/relocation tasks, and not so much time knitting.

Which is a shame, considering that this came in the mail last week:

It's the shetland yarn for Dad's 2007 Vest, and I am SO excited...

Speaking of excited, I was lucky enough to get to visit with Lola last week at Knit Happens - she was either trying to walk herself, or just chewing on her leash. Either way, AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!

I've also been working really hard on my Indigo Ripples Skirt... I've actually finished the knitting and I've washed it a few times... now I need to take a few hours and have a finishing party! Maybe tomorrow?

Last weekend was my graduation weekend, so I spent a lot of time Chez-Parents... Abby helped.

Apparently she did a good job, because they gave me a diploma and everything!

After graduation, I watched my roomie of the last 3 years drive away (sniffle sniffle), and S and I got to work on transforming the apartment...

That, my friends, is a ridiculous kitty-tower. I got it on ebay for about $50... which is 1/2 of the price it was selling for other places! S thought that Cricket needed a kitty tower so she wouldn't feel so left out once we moved all of Abby's stuff over...

Cricket, of course, preferred the box in which the kitty tower came...

... but with a little coaxing, she gave the new (and completely ridiculous) tower a try...

She's slept in it multiple times since we set it up, so I think it's a success.

In less successful news, remember all of that shetland? I got this far along with the 2007 Vest, and decided that the bright yellow just had to go.

I dove into my shetland stash and came up with this mushroom-y color... I think I'll have enough to substitute for the yellow, and it looks SO much better!

Oh, did I not mention the 2007 Vest design? Here's a hint...
