I Ran Out of Lime Yarn

Damnitall. :( I would post a pic (I have the purple bag all sewn together, but I haven't finished the handles), but it's packed up ready to be moved Sunday afternoon. But here is what is currently on my needles:

Another felted bag. That is not red, it's rose.

Two Sides Done!

Now I just have the pocket to finish knitting. And, of course, it has to be sewn together.

Here's what else I managed to finish this week:

Thank God I learned how to knit. It's keeping me sane.

Forgive me Blog Readers

for I have sinned. It's been 16 days since my last blog entry.

I've been busy. I haven't been knitting much because I have recently discovered how much of an uncaring and unkind asshole my boyfriend can be. Apartment hunting is time consuming, especially since I'm trying to bring both kitties with me. I love Ciatee, who is sitting on my lap as I type this, and my kids love Merlin. The boy calls him his orange kitty.

I also went back to work on the 11th, which is leaving me less and less time to knit. And, to top off a crappy two weeks, my neighbor's son shared his cold with me. So, not only am I adjusting to Lexapro, searching for an apartment, packing, and trying to get my crap in order, I am also doping myself up with cold meds so I can breathe all while trying to catch up on the classwork I slacked off on while I cried over lost love last week.

So, there you have it, my excuses for not blogging. Thursday I start therapy, so hopefully after that I will have no reason to type lame ass excuses for not knitting or blogging.

What's on my needles?

First up, the umbilical cord hat for my new nephew (due to arrive in November). It matches the diaper bag I already gave to my SIL.

Next up is my adapted version of the same diaper bag, in purple.

I have about two inches of the purple bag finished on the needles, but didn't take a picture of it. IRL, the purple in the bag and blue from the hat don't look that similar. This is evidence of my need for a new digicam. I'm adding it to the list. *sigh*

Another Cat Pic

The other cat in our house is Ciatee. I think I have one or two other pics of her on my blog. She isn't a photo-op cat like her brother, Merlin, but that's probably because she spends a good portion of her day hiding from the kids. I can totally understand why she hides. There are four of them, and if I could hide from them, sometimes I would.

Ciatee has chosen me to be her person. I think that somewhat bothers my boyfriend, who is used to being every cat's favorite person.
Here's where Ciatee often sleeps when she isn't on my lap, like she is right now as I type this:

The bag I usually use for school books

I've caught her a couple of times sleeping INSIDE the bag or in/on my knitting bag. She also likes to nap on the back of my knitting chair. Crazy cat.

Crafty cack:
My wrists have been aching lately. Damned carpal tunnel! As a result, I haven't knit much the past few days. On a positive note, I haven't had to frog the purple bag again. :-P
