I'VE BEEN BITTEN BY THE KNITTING BUG!!!!!




The compulsion to knit has caught me in it's grasp. It started with scarves, I think I have made a fuzzy one of those for everyone in my family. I am now working on a T-Shirt type sweater for myself. It's going pretty good so far but I can't believe I have forgotten so much. I used to knit alot when I was younger but I have really lost alot of what I knew. One of my goals is that before the end of the year I want to learn how to knit socks.


I found this picture of the two kitties on the internet, I call it " Best Friends". I love cats, I don't know what I would do If I came home and there wasn't a soft furry thing here to greet me. As soon as I come in the door she jumps in my lap, she is my Calico and here name is Miss Kitty. I also have Bonnie that is a grey tabby and she is my quilt inspector as you can see in my photo. She will lay on every quilt I make and if there is one in the hoop she sits in the hoop as she is doing in the picture. I will have to get a pictue of Miss Kitty so there is one of her on here also or she will feel left out.
We have had off and on rain for the last three days and I think we will get another round tonite. It definately cools it off some after but makes it very humid before we get it. School will be starting soon and I am looking forward to having my days to myself again. I may leave the 12-hr shifts to go to work at a Drs office. The work will be easier on my knees and a lot less stressful.
Guess that is all for now. Hope everyone has a great day.

The two kitties were really cute, but your cat is beautiful too! There is something about cats and crafts we are working on! I too like to knit and our cat use to come and lie down on the yarn ball!The quilt you are making is beautiful!
