I didn't knit ALL weekend.

Here's what I managed to accomplish this weekend:

Can't even see the seams, can you?

Wait, no, that's the Sallis' cat, Grace. And graceful she is, indeed. Shaped like a football, with a rather dear tendency to roll off of chairs in ecstasy when being combed.

We went to the Wildlife World Zoo — or possibly the World Wildlife Zoo, no one was entirely sure — which was great fun and had darling penguins.

We chatted, ate massive amounts of delicious food and went to a party.

And I did a little knitting, though mostly on the drive out and back. I am nearly done with Screamin' Leaves. Just about 14 rows to go and I can feel that lovely sense of accomplishment (and be slightly less embarrassed by how much I have on the needles right now).

I am making inroads into the second Pea Pod (which kind of sounds like I'm eating it, doesn't it?):


And I've gotten over Second Sock Syndrome and have a start on the second Hedera:


But I also went to a Mediterranean grocery and came home with too much junk food. Oh well, win some, lose some.

I do love your sense of color and the way you write! I'm glad you're back. Grace is a beautiful cat. (Otis is at the vet's being neutered today - oh how I worry but it's for the best.)

Gorgeous knitting, as always!

I know all about football shaped cats. Sounds like you had a great weekend.

What a beautiful cat that Grace is! Looks like she knows it, too.

You scarf is BEAUTIFUL! Love it.

Penguins sure are funny to watch.

Your Screamin' Leaves looks infinitely better than mine. Maybe it'll look better after I send it to My Blocker. Haha, My Blocker, haha.

Must. knit. Pea. Pod. Sweater.

And Hedera is gorgeous.

Oh and btw, the next time you put a song reference in your post title I shall have to kill you. I pray you never go to Wichita.
