Awww...


On Wednesday morning, my support pager went off at 4:30 - not pleasant. So, I dragged my tired butt out of bed, logged in, and started stick handling not one, but two major issues at once. I had fed the Little Dudes their breakfast, and at one point I thought - "uh oh, WAY TOO QUIET!".

But - look at why!

Awwww...you know, that made my day to see them all cuddled up like that in a row. Little munchkins. Then I decided to have some cheese, and before you can say "Double Cream Brie", the moment was gone and Atticus and Gandalf were at my feet giving me the "look", hoping for handouts. Oh well...

Knitting - well, there are no pictures! It's all Christmas, all the time these days. And the recipients, well, heh heh...can't have them see it before Santa delivers.

Speaking of Santa - I asked Santa for my Dale of Norway kit. Hi Santa!

The KAL is getting exciting! So many people are joining up, it's going to be a LOT of fun! Oh yeah... my choice. After going back and forth between stranded and Aran, I decided on a stranded design - http://www.beaellisknitwear.com/images/pb/enlarged/d170-3.jpg.
Oooooo!!! Ahhhhhh!!!

And, I do really, really love this Aran - http://www.beaellisknitwear.com/images/pb/enlarged/d144-1.jpg, but that will be for another project...

Hopefully I'll have some non-Christmas knitting next post. Dalarna's first sleeve has been getting some attention, but this past week she has been neglected...

Stay tuned! I have not forgotten my other WIP's. Maybe I'll (re)introduce you to them next post...

sleeping cats, just like sleeping children, bring out the best sentimental feelings don't they?
I love your Dale choice...and the Dale aran choice - I have a bright idea: make both! ;)

Bridge- Can I second that? I agree with Marji, why stress yourself out with having to make choices?
A lineup of snugglebunnies- so cute. I spent some Pug-time tonight- his name is Otis, and I WANT ONE!

You were eating brie at oh-dark-hundred?! :O so cute to see them snuggled up like that - awwwww. Chaos is lying on my foot and May is curled up on the bed behind me right now. Awwwww.

You stranded knitters scare the heck out of me.

Marina said...

Aww, they look like angels! Like as if that's the way they always behave ;-)

Why bother even looking at the WIPs? They'll be finished when their time comes.

Rebecca said...

The little munchkins are adorable! I keep telling my husband that having a cat and knitting go hand in hand but he just keeps ignoring me.

I LOVE your Dale choice! Stunning! I'm still trying to resist purchasing more yarn stash but you guys are making it VERY DIFFICULT :-)

Love the choice! Both choices. Now, just waiting for cast on day is going to be a challenge!

Oh the one has so much beautiful color work and the other the beauty is all in the stitches. I can't wait to see - both? *snicker*

The little ones are too cute!

Carrie K said...

So adorable! And I can't believe you posted on Friday and I didn't see it until now.

Very cute Dales you chose there! But you did order the stranded one from Santa, right? I've kind of decided on Nygard but I'm not sure about the Daletta yarn the kit comes with.

Your kitties are so CUTE! They look like little angel-babies.

Cynthia said...

Adorable kitties! I so wish we could have more than one. Emy would probably appreciate the company.

Rebekah said...

Your kitties are so cute! It's amazing how sweet animals look when they are so quiet.

I've currently banned myself from Bea Ellis, it's all too tempting!

My gosh, the cuteness!!! When I saw that pic, I got a tremendous urge to jump right into the middle of this furry sleepiness and join them in their snoring! ;)
