Yesterday Morning

Yesterday I spent a couple of hours reskeining yarn that I had dyed on Sunday. For the first time ever, the store was completely empty last week! So, I chugged away on Sunday and even managed to have time for some new colorways :) Of course, Shamrock had to be one of them!



I think its funny, but everytime I attempt to do work at home, the kitties seem to want to snuggle or play. And, they want to get me involved. Here, you can all witness what happens:

Picture 1: Kali says, "Look how cute I am!"
Picture 2: Kali says, "Hmm, smells on your finger.. are you going behind my back and playing with some sheepies mommy?"
Picture 3: Kali thinks, "You're my mommy, lets wrestle and play!"
Picture 4: Kali thinks, "Hmm, I think I just realized mommy isn't a cat and can't wrestle with me like I want to... lets go find that sister of mine!"
Picture 5: Sister playtime begins.. Soma never seems to have the upper hand in a good roll-around, but here it looks like she is taking charge!
Picture 6: Nevermind, two minutes later, Soma seems to be on the bottom with her ears being gnawed on.





Oh, and yesterday I also basted in Scott's zipper successfully. No real ripples and it seemed to be perfectly flat... What am I doing today??!! TAKING IT OUT!!! After a discussion last night, we both thnk that the zipper really needs to be longer since it didn't quite make it to the top of the collar. So, I ordered two different colors from here and hopefully the problem will be solved soon. Stupid zippers....

The cats are adorable and that yarn looks super yummy. If I were the cats, I would be trying to roll around in that!

The colours are great. Love the babies. Have two of my own. Worse than having kids.

Ok - I just want to roll around in that stack of yarn - so gorgeous with all the different colors!! Sigh. The kitties are cute - my boys do the same thing - always wanting to be right in the middle of a project - wrapping Xmas gifts is probably the worst. Oh, and by the way, I think that REALLY IS the CUTEST airplane sweater EVER - adorable!

Hi Dani,
I'm almost done with my wave skirt - just have the lace edging to go. Here's the link to my blog so you can see the color combination so far. Thanks again for the inspiration.
