The soggy Friday gave way to a grey and damp Saturday, wherein I have mostly sat upon my arse and knit. I have begun Ankestrick's Organic sweater, in one strand of a fuzzy green mohair and one strand of a 50/50 merino/angora blend, both yarns from colourmart.com. This is my first go at a saddle shoulder, and it's requiring more of my attention than usual. But I think, if I don't fuck it up, it will be beautiful.
As I knit, I watch the critters roaming around the living room - my little band of rescues: Louie the geriatric mutt, who came to us via SHAID animal shelter when his owner died, and who still has trouble remembering not to pee on the carpet; Vinnie the dog-who-would-be-awesome, were it not for his habit of trying to eat other, smaller dogs; Oliver the tuxie cat, who can cuddle one minute and savage you the next, Russell orange-boy with his cauliflower ear...there are more cats in the house, but that's all I can see right now. Everybody has their issues, and truthfully they drive me crazy at times, but I love them anyway. Let me show you my babies:
Maybe y'all have guessed that today I don't have much to write about, but there is peace and satisfaction in a day given over to not much at all. Tomorrow will no doubt be a more happenin' time, but today I'm glad to sit and knit, and love the critters.
