Family Addition

Before I show you the knitting I’ve done so far, let me share with you pictures of the newest addition to the house!

sandy

Her name is Sandy, and we adopted her from the ECAH Humane society on Saturday. Misty went along with us to Petsmart, and she behaved very well for a kitten on a harness in a busy store with dogs! She got many compliments from everyone and lots of petting, so I think she’s happy. This was her general reaction to her new sister:

watchful

Very watchful, she kept her eye on the newcomer all day. They had a little conflict at the beginning, but now they dart around the house playing and chasing each other with no more growling from Misty, so I’m happy. This also means Misty doesn’t attack toes or meow in loneliness in the middle of the night! Everyone wins.

In knitting news, all I’ve got left on the Dreamswatch headwrap is weaving in some ends, attempt at blocking, and then I’ll be done! The Wavy scarf has also progressed nicely and is now about 2/3 of the way done. My interest in it is starting to wane, but I keep it around for travel knitting and although it has slowed down a little, I’ll have it finished sometime in the next couple of weeks.

My newest project (I know, starting so many and none finished yet!) is Knitscene’s Central Park Hoodie! I’ve been wanting to knit this for a while now, have the yarn, pattern, and now the needles from Knitpicks, so I cast on yesterday. So far I’ve got the ribbing done for the back and am taking it to my Knitnight tonight at Borders so I can make sure I’ll be doing the charts correctly, since I’ve never knit with charts. It’s also my first constructed sweater that I’ll have to seam together, and I’m not looking forward too much to that. I mean really, is there anyone out there who just loves seaming? Nobody I’ve talked to really does.

I also went to Joanns today to pick up a tiny crochet hook for the beading I’ll have to do for the Secret of the Stole, which starts Friday! While I was there the bead aisles caught my eye and I came home with three strings of pretty beads to try my hand at making stitchmarkers with. I found a good tutorial here and am looking forward to trying it out tonight or tomorrow afternoon.

Today is filled with classes and going to Borders for knit night! Last time I went was two meetings ago, and I had a good time. Hopefully my friend Carol is able to join me tonight, I’ll be working on either my hoodie or the scarf for my Exchange pal on Ravelry. This should be fun!
