Three Guesses!

"...the way of the Cat is different from the Dog. Their methods are crude, primitive. As a cat, you must learn the 'stare'. With patience and persistence, humans will ultimately cave. Especially Mom. She's weak, and cannot resist our little faces. You will get what you want, with patience."

"Yes, Sensei."

Hey everyone! It's been another week, but - so goes it!

OK. I never said I wouldn't purchase anything. I may have mentioned *mumble something something mumble* won't start anything yadda yadda yadda...


Wendy mentioned in her blog yesterday that I certainly know my Starmores...

Do you know yours?!

So, apart from Marina, and maybe Lorraine - do you know what the lovely Jamieson's yarn package (purchased from Anne at She Ewe Knits, of course!) I received today is for?!

A toughie, I assure you.

Hints: this design is not for sale at Virtual Yarns, and the colours are almost identical in colour to the original Scottish Campion called for in the pattern. The design is approx. 12 years old.

Can't say more than that! I will NOT start her until Dalarna is done. I will NOT start her until Dalarna is done. I will NOT start her until Dalarna is done. I will NOT start her until Dalarna is done... oh, sorry.

I was late coming home from work today (much to the dismay of the Little Dudes), but for a good reason:

A good 6+ inches removed from my hair! Wheeeee! My curls were dying from the weight of the hair, cutting it certainly makes the curl come out.

And I love that I came out of the salon not looking like a freak with Janis Joplin hair like the previous hair salon I went to made me look.

Another Birthday!

Today is the *cough cough*-th birthday of my brother Danny!

Hey Dan, Happy Birthday! I tried to call you but you weren't home. Dude, get an answering machine!

Which leads me to another event I'd like to mention - Saturday, November 11th is Remembrance Day here in Canada. I've always paid special attention to this day, it's so important that we remember our Veterans, past and present. And my brother is one of those Veterans, serving in the Canadian military for over 20 years now. He participated in Canada's mission in Afghanistan in 2001/02, and has represented and served Canada quite well over the years. Despite the conflicts all over the world, and our views on them, we should nevertheless take the time to remember the soldiers fighting in those wars. They are doing a thankless, and dangerous job.

So, thanks Dan for doing me and this country proud!

Hey Bridge- Well, Anne would know, wouldn't she?
Your hair looks amazing- incredible what a haircut can do, isn't it?
Happy birthday brother!

Happy birthday to Dan - all the very best to him! And wow, I totally love your hairstyle, you look stunning with it!

Marina said...

That's easy, anyone can see that it's ..... ;-)

The hair looks gorgeous! Lovely curls.

Happy Birthday, Dan and thank you for all you've done.

Hee hee - love the Sensei photo and "wisdom"! Um, no clue on the Starmore. :)

Happy birthday to your brother! And your hair looks great. Now, do people notice when you get your hair cut? I got 3-4" cut last month and no one noticed - to them it was still long, I guess.

Nicole said...

I love the cat wisdom, too! Such a great photos of them. Yay cats!

I love your hair. Mine used to be that long, but when I decided to cut it this most recent time, I took it off to above my shoulders.

Very cute training photo! Your hair looks great.

I have no idea what the yarn is for. I think you should cast it on so I can see.

Happy Birthday, Dan!

I'm guessing the yarn kit is for the sweater Kells out of Celtic Collection.

Great looking hair and the kitties look so cute, especially Gandalf with his little legs tucked under.

Cynthia said...

I love your kitties - Gandalf's other name is Grasshopper, right?

I'm not an expert on Starmore designs, but I'm sure liking those colors.

Love the hair!

Rebecca said...

Can't wait to see what that lovely yarn is for! Is it MARINA? Probably not .. the purplish colors are throwing me off...
