Tossing Kitty and FO

as I sit here Sissy just tossed her dinner, she does this quite a bit. I read that Nicole has given her kitty Pepcid AC. I am going to try this. Just have to figure out the best way to get it into her.
I stayed home today to keep the knee up. While getting lunch I literally stuck to the floor at the cafe in our building and had a nano second of the most excruciating pain. It got worse as the afternoon went on. So today I propped the leg up on two pillows, plus a third to keep my butt from sliding down, with the heating pad to the back of my knee and the ice pack strapped to the front. Tried knitting for awhile but the best thing to do in this position is to sleep. So I did. Knee feels much better.

Here is what I have been able to get accomplished in the last 6 days. One and a half completed. Try as I might I could not get the pictures to show the true colors, which are very muted.

Yarn: Mountain Colors-Mountain Goat, 55% Mohair, 45% wool, 230 yards per skein, 100 grams, Hand-dyed Color way: Ewelea (I think) I could not find it in my web search. This yarn is mushy and glides off the needles. I love it. Finally broke my yarn diet and went to Uniqities

Needles: Susan Bates 31" circular size 7, using the Magic Loop method

I absolutely LOVE that yarn.

And a question: I'm new to Blogger, and I want to add you back as my friend. :) But I'm not sure how. Would I just 'subscribe to posts,' like is says at the bottom of the page? Thanks a bunch! (Excuse the n00biness. :P )

You know... My kitty was tossing her food up on a regular basis a while back, the vet said that it might be the food... I switched her to Wellness dry cat food, and some Wellness canned, now she only throws up her food once in a blue moon.

That yarn is gorgeous! I'm so tempted to cast on for sox right now, but I cannot until I finish the sweater!
