Totally not knitting related....

But I don't think you guys will mind.

What's been going on you ask? Why have you been too busy to knit? Why are their no updates on that one sock you've been working on since like January?

Well, to answer your questions, I will post a picture.

Meet Gracie.

She's my new kitten!

Kevin and I adopted her this past weekend from the local SPCA shelter.

She's 3 months old and enjoys running around the house like a bat out of hell, playing with the dangling rope toy, pestering Jack and Mischief into being friends and taking turns sleeping on mine and Kevin's heads at night.

She also is fascinated by my knitting and has taken to trying to "help" me with the yarn when I'm working. This slows me down significantly (and it's not like I'm very fast to begin with!).

We're not completely settled on the name Gracie. It's the name she came with from the shelter. We're contemplating other options but haven't decided what we like best yet. It's between Willow, Neko, and V(iolet) right now. (Her face looks like the Guy Fawks mask from V for Vendetta) Or we could just keep it as Gracie. We'll see.

So I hope you can forgive my lack of knitting updates (and book updates. Kittens are much cuter than books.). Enjoy the pictures!:)


Summer hobby switch...

Dang, it's been over a month since I last blogged! I feel like such a slacker. I promise I haven't given up knitting completely. I've got my Hedera sock that I'm limping along with, maybe an hour here and there through the week. It's about 2/3 of the way through and looks nice so far. I've mostly put my knitting needles down though and started reading again. I seem to switch my hobbies when the weather changes. Knitting for fall/winter and reading for the summer. I'll update once I finish the sock, but don't expect it to be anytime soon.;)

On the other hand if you want to know about the books I've been reading I can tell you all about a pig's orgasm. (Reading Bonk, by Mary Roach)
