This Post Brought To You By...


"Whoa! Oh, hey! Um, right this is kinda embarassing... Anyhoo. So, Mom's been feeling poorly these past few days. Something about her stomach. She's been keeping a "low profile", whatever that is. She seems pretty much higher than me, so I don't really know what a "low" profile is."



"Auntie Brigitte feels crummy! Aw, that sucks... But I ask you - does she have to get these ridiculous haircuts, and have someone ::cough::Mommy Susie::cough:: make funnies behind her head? Oh, probably NOT."

"Eeeeeeeeeee! Heeeee heeeeee! Eeeeeeee! Hangie thingie! Heeee heeeeeee! Ah nuts, I'm stuck..."

"Such. A. Dork. Anyway, Mom has been knitting, she finished the front of Grace, and one whole sleeve! But, speaking of dorky, she keeps forgetting she has to block that shawl, Kiri. I keep telling her it doesn't count as an FO until she does. She's spacey these days... Anyway. She also is upset with Delores because she's already run out of yarn. So, to make herself feel better (you know how it is), and because I told her that Fair Isle is the cure to most ills (I know, I rock), she started "Laleli". You know, from Virtual Yarns. It's a cardigan with purples and greens, but the picture on the site is all funky, so it's kinda hard to tell what the design is. Seems all flowery to me...oh, tulips! Anyway, where was I... Oh right, Grace. No. Was it Fair Isle? Oh. I'm tired now."

"I'm helping too! Look! I'm typing on the computer while Mom drinks coffee and multi-tasks with the camera! I'm a star! Mae tells me I'm space cadet all the time, and this proves it!"


Normal blogging will resume, once we're up from our nap!

So, what's that? Three Fair Isles, one gansey, at least one lace ... etc. Perfect! Monogamy is over-rated where knitting is concerned ;-)

Remind your mother to take a pic of Delores and Laleli, next time she has her camera out!

Tell you mom to feel better. Maybe sitting on her lap and purring would help. All at once. Just to prove that you can do it.

Carrie K said...

Oooh, Laleli? Awesome! That'll teach Dolores not to run out of yarn. You did get the rest of what you need, right? Or getting?

Poor Brigitte. Hope you feel better soon! It looks like all your helpers are rallying around for you. Gandalf is such a dork. Silly kitty.

Brenda said...

Hope you feel better soon, Brigitte! Although it looks like Mae is good at taking care of you. And Gandalf is good for comic relief. Looking forward to seeing your knitting when you feel better.

Just found the blog; excuse my ignorance, the black cat's name is Gandalf? He is lovely.

Bridget said...

Feel better!

In the meantime, it's good that you have "helpers" with everything ...

Lorraine said...

Bridge- I love the Atticus "Buddha" pose- and the kitty yoga.
Nope, can't keep up with you. Even when you're feeling crummy, you get more done than I do.

Poor Finnegan- oh, the indignity!

Chris said...

My goodness - I think I need a scorecard for all those projects! Poor Atticus - his dignity! His dignity!

Hope you're feeling better soon...

Jewel said...

Hey Little Dudes: Take good care of your Mommy. Knitting makes everything better, so let her knit.

DeeAnn said...

I so hope you are feeling better - with that kind of "family" antics you have to be laughing cus I know I am and will be for awhile! Sorry I missed you for so long! I'll have to search to see all you've been up to this summer!

Michelle said...

Oh my, should I send some chicken soup via the parcel postman?

Traceyleezle said...

Kitty posts are the best! Hope you feel better soon.

Hope you're feeling better Brigitte! At least you can still knit! :)

I love all the fur buddies with their different personalities! They're so funny! m :)

Sonya said...

Such helpful substitute bloggers! Hope you're feeling better soon. I'm home with a stomach "thing" today, so I can relate. Of course I don't have Laleli to comfort me. I love those colors.

Rebekah said...

why thank you kitties for the nice update, I hope your mama is feeling much better very soon.

Dipsy said...

My gosh, I'm "aaawwww"ing and "oooohhhh"ing over here - your furry babes are just the cutest! Hey guys and girls, do tell your Mom to feel better soon, will you?

bev said...

Busy, busy, busy. The kitties that is. Hope the mom person feels better soon.
