I worked through the mess that I created in my Citron. I think it was just a stitch that was pulled really taunt that created one big loop. It's still a little messy looking there but not so much that I care enough to rip it out and redo it.
But I haven't worked on it much lately. I've had a lot of outside forces taking me away from my knitting time. My Dad had a mild heart attack last week so I was distracted then. There was a movie night out with friends. Mom and my niece came up for a visit and didn't leave me much free time this weekend.
Then my poor, dear cat Frodo was hit by a car on Sunday and I had to put him down last night. I spent Sunday night and all day yesterday torn to pieces and trying to hold myself together while trying to figure out what to do for him. I feel kind of silly being so upset over the loss of a cat, but Frodo was pretty special. He was the nicest cat I've ever known, and he never met a stranger. He loved people and he loved being the center of attention. He was friendly and playful and enjoyed playing with children. He tolerated being held and carried around in all sorts of crazy manners. He slept at my feet every night and drank the milk out of my cereal bowl. He was just a fantastically awesome cat.
I've got loads of homework to do today that I put off during all of this and then there's class tomorrow night so knitting will still have to wait a bit before I can get back to it. Which is ok, I guess. I'm still having a hard time feeling inspired by anything.
