I'm not an addict.

It's just, like, a coincidence that both of my online orders arrived on the very same day that I tried a new yarn store close to work and found the exact yarn I need for my mom's Christmas gift.

I can stop any time I want to.

Friday Catblogging: Boris' Lifelong Ambition

I've always let Boris drink out of the bathroom sink's faucet -- it makes him happy, and it's funny to hear him sneezing as he sticks his face under too far and gets water up his nose. But though he loved to hang out in the bathtub, we would never let him drink out of the bathtub faucet.

Until we were told he was dying, so we decided to grant his last wish. Which seems to have given him the will to continue living, so he can continue drinking out of that faucet. So now we're stuck letting him drink out of the tub's faucet despite Keaton's not-so-charming habit of peeing in the empty tub.

Friday Sweaterblogging

I'm very, very excited that I'm tackling my first sweater. I'm doing a relatively easy one -- Stefanie Japel's the Better Sweater that I originally saw on "Knitty Gritty." Apparently, it also appears in slightly different form in her book Fitted Knits, which is ON MY AMAZON.COM WISHLIST, BIRTHDAY PRESENT BUYERS!


Anyway, it seems to be going pretty well. I have a couple more repeats to do before I put the sleeve stitches onto scrap yarn and start working the body. I didn't really do a swatch because my swatches lie. I'm hoping I don't regret it.

Well, if I do, that's what I have an 8-year-old niece for, right?
