Welcome to the World, Dharma!

Woo-hoo! My sister Teri and her husband Carl had their little girl this afternoon! This is the baby that I knit the cornflower blue blanket for... the one I was certain was a boy! I'm so happy for both of them. I don't have any other details yet - I was only able to talk to my Mom for about 30 seconds. All I know is that she is beautiful and has lots of hair. I hope someone remembers to send me a picture soon!

And now for your bad cat picture of the day:



What is Lucky sitting in? My stash of to-be-recycled plastic bags. A few loads back I had put his emptied plastic kibble bag in there and ever since he has to inspect every subsequent recycling to see if there is another kibble bag - because you never know when there may be a few stray kibble hanging around...

Oh, and I am still knitting - I am within 2-3 days of finishing the pinwheel baby blanket - all I need to do now is the solid blue border around the edge and the bind off. I'm a little scared about this. I know it won't compare to those of you who do intricate lace with a gazillion stitches to cast off, but it will have about 650 stitches, the most I have ever cast off at any given time.

Congratulations, Auntie.

My friend's cat takes over shoe boxes. Can't keep him away.

Congratulations, Auntie Jo!

life's a stitch's comment reminded me of my old cat who loved shoes. She would curl into any shoes left on the floor and snooze as long as possible.

Aww a surprise baby girl. Those babies sure can be sneaky when it comes to their gender.
