Daylight "Savings"

My patootie. I feel like I've already run out of time to do the stuff I have to do this morning.

"Do you want me to file your taxes Mom? Or do the dishes? Oh, wait! Lemme just chase this squirrel for a sec...!! Eeeeheeheeheeheeeeeeheee! Hi Squirrel! Hi!!"

Windsor Waistcoat, I love you. I spent hours and hours yesterday working on you, and yet, I feel you haven't grown much... *sigh* When will you reach your armhole steeks? Soon? I hope so, because my wrist hurts. But, you're so pretty!

Must stop talking to my knitting. I did work on WW yesterday quite a bit; I probably managed around 20 rounds. Not bad, considering colour changes, cats and a really good episode of Law & Order I hadn't seen.

I'm maybe...7 or so rounds to the armhole steeks? Pretty good. And I'm on the last repeat of the front of my lovely Genevieve. Then, it's on to the sleeves, which are short. Wow, I'm amazed at how many people love it in Ravelry! Actually, no - I'm not. Fiddlesticks Knitting patterns...what can I say? She makes it easy. But, I'm amazed I actually had the chance to do any knitting this past week. Work has been quite...full, of late. I get in at 7:30am, and next thing I know, it's time to go home. There were days that I don't quite remember...

Anyway, I'll take the stress of work any day over the stress of a sick cat.

So! Despite it all, my plan to clear out some WIP's is working out well. jinxing though!

"I hear people wondered why I didn't pose for pictures last week. Well, there are days when a girl just doesn't want to be photographed, you know? I'm looking pretty content here though, don't you think? I call it my Greta "I vont to be alone" Garbo pose."

"I love you, man."

"Uh huh. You too, Gandalf."

"Sorry I lunged at you when you got back from the vet. I thought you were someone else. Hey! It's looking better now! Not so freakish."

"Whatev. It's not like I can see it. I thought you were going to go explore the world with Yoko?"

"Naw, I decided I'd be no good at fending for myself. Besides, she called me a Momma's Boy, because I asked her it Mom could come too. You know, to feed us and stuff. Hey, do you think we look fat from this angle?"

"Pffft. No! Fat. Please."

All is well with the boys now. Back to being the best of friends. Now to just get those stitches out of Atticus' back...

20 per day? I think I need to give up something to get there. Maybe my afternoon nap? Nah! It's 10:35 and I'm ready to go to bed.

miyamojo said...

Yeah, 20 rounds?! You rock! I'm glad you're working on WW.

Looks like Atticus is growing some fuzz back. Glad the boys are enjoying some time in the sun. Mae looks marvelous!

I hate losing an hour too.

Lorraine said...

Brigitte- Did you get a new carpet?

I do nowhere near 20 rounds in a day.
Maybe if we had long stretches of uninterrupted time. But that doesn't exist.

Sundays are good for Coronation Street and knitting.

Bridget said...

WW looks beautiful, I love the colors!

I'm glad that all is well with everyone in Kittyland ... and that everyone decided to stay put with you. :-)

Scheherazaad said...

Ah Hah! so that's what you are knitting instead of the Belted Cardigan. It looks beautiful.

carolyn said...

You're amazing! That's a lot of rows per day!!! I feel lucky if I get 10 rows done in a day and then I'm "not allowed" to do absolutely anything else!

The sun is looking "springish"...

Michelle said...

I also felt like I woke up behind the 8-ball today! Your babies are looking good! Glad to hear all is well in kittyville :)

Chris said...

Wow, I can't imagine knitting that many rounds on that project!

I'm glad the boys are getting along again. :)

And I know this whole week is going to be a wreck for me. Oy.

Brenda said...

WW is looking fabulous! 20 rounds in a day seems like a lot.

Glad the boys are back to being friends. I hope Atticus's fur grows back soon!

I love the photo of your boys together! I'm glad that they are friends again. Mae is so sweet -- I know the feeling of her wanting to be alone for a bit! Rainy is like that too.

WW is coming along so nicely!

Sonya said...

I like WW more every time I see it. 20 rounds? You totally rock. I love the kitty pictures! So nice to see the boys hanging out together.

Carrie K said...

I didn't even manage to knit 20 rounds on the sleeve on my obsessive all day knitting. You rock.

Aw, a buddy pic. Wow, that's quite a shave on Atticus! I know, 6x6 is a decent expanse on a cat. Even an Atticus cat. ;) (that means nothing Atticus! nothing!)

I love Mae and her throne.

Rebekah said...

Kitty buddies are sooo cute.

Your wasitcoat is beautiful, I adore the colors.

Fiddlesticks Knititng patterns are the absolute best. Even when they seem confusing if you just follow what the instructions say, it all woks out. I love them.

Oh must be patient. :-) Lovely work there.
