Almost done...

Monday at work is done!
My graffiti sock #1 is almost done. I was going to ribbed all the way but figured I'd add a twist. Mock twisted cable. Should be able to start 2nd sock by Friday. Doing these on one 24" addi is working out well.

My 1st spindle, my friend Carol brought this for me at MS&W. Perfect for a 1st spindle. Now I really need to bone up.

My Garden

I have to say this has to be the best flower picture I have ever taken!

I hope to see the rest in bloom tomorrow

What I brought with a 40% off coupon at Michael's. Well, I just had to use the coupon, don't you know. Then Carol got her project ready for a cruise she is taking mid-month. She was going to do two on one 40# for the 1st time. Well, this bag is perfect! I don't remember the yarn but it is just beautiful and perfect colors for a cruise.

Kitty update

Zorro is doing better. He is walking on all feet now and is jonesing to go out! I am keeping him in for another week, if I don't loose the battle. He is one quick and cagey kitty. Stanley wants out too but he is OK sleeping in.

My big fat Pia jumped up to entrainment unit via the kitty tree. This is only the 2nd time she did this. 1st time I grabbed the camera she jumped down.

Watch this space tomorrow. I have a great video to share with you all. I need to see if I can learn to edit.

I really love your sock! I think the yarn is awesome! Love the columbine. I have some in my garden that are purple. Mine is not ready to bloom yet. You must be further south than I am here in Illinois. Nice job with the photo's!

You're doing a great job on the sock - looks like a fun pattern!

Wow, your cat has some mad jumping skills to get up that high!

It's so fun to watch the flowers bloom in other parts of the states. Not much blooming here, so to see that beautiful flower says that summer is still coming - even here! LOL Great socks, btw. :) Have a great day.

That is a really gorgeous flower photo - I can just imagine it on a stunning card or poster!

Glad Zorro is on the mend, poor kitty.
And the sock's looking great too!!

Great sock, can't wait to see you spin, and beautiful flower shot.

I have the same skein holder. I like it a lot for big projects.

I might just have time to play with my spindle now we are the other side of the wedding!

Love the socks, what yarn is it?

Look at you with a new spindle too! Now we are all getting into the game! LOL

Your flowers are gorgeous, great shot!

And Pia looks quite pleased with herself up there on the entertainment center. :)
