Crafts and Cats

Posted in knit, life on October 18, 2010 by DecepticonKnits

Ah, my two favorite things (well, other than my DH).   I have been busy with both recently.

First, I have finished somethings, are half way finished with things, and starting some new things, in my craft world.

As most in my area have discovered, the weather is starting to be bipolar.  Random warm, random cold, some days are right in the middle.  Because of this I have decided to make a pair (maybe two down the road) of fingerless mitts.  I have not had a real moment to use them yet, but playing around in them I have discovered they are very warm, so I can’t wait for a day to really wear them.

As always, I have to have a sock going (okay, I have multiple socks going, but this is a new one!)  This one is inspired by Professor McGonagall, the Deputy Headmistress of Hogwarts.  I even made it in red to show of her house.  I only have one so far, and I am sad to say that second sock syndrome has kicked in.  However, I have not yet cast-on another pair of socks, and hopefully I won’t until I finish these.

I may not be starting a new pair of socks, but I have started a new project.  I was inspired a bit when a friend came to town and had finished a lovely lace shawl.  I have always been intimidated by lace, yet I spin and purchase lace yarn quite often.  So I finally got the nerve to cast on a real lace project.  It looks great in my handspun that I have been dying to use for quite a while.  I am so worried that I am going to mess up on it that I move my life line after every repeat of 6 rows.  I really want to finish this one because it is so pretty!


And now, CATS!  I have had my cats for about 4 months now.  I’ve taken very few photos of them because they want so much petz that when they do cute things they quickly move out of it and to me to be pet. I have gotten a few though by force and some are just not that great, but I have them.  I have also had to put them out recently and that has had me going kind of crazy too.

Personality Test

My Personality

Openness to Experience
You rarely get angry and it takes a lot to make you angry, however you are sensitive about what others think of you. Your concern about rejection and ridicule cause you to feel shy and uncomfortable around others. You are easily embarrassed and often feel ashamed. Your fears that others will criticize or make fun of you are exaggerated and unrealistic, but your awkwardness and discomfort may make these fears a self-fulfilling prophecy. You tend not to talk much and prefer to let others control the activities of groups. You prefer familiar routines and for things to stay the same. You can tend to feel uncomfortable with change. You do not enjoy confrontation, but you will stand up for yourself or push your point if you feel it is important, however you are not affected strongly by human suffering, priding yourself on making objective judgments based on reason. You are more concerned with truth and impartial justice than with mercy. Your sense of duty and obligation is average and although you are mostly responsible you can sometimes be unreliable.
