Some cats seem to be fairly dexterous with their "hands," to the extent that you wonder if maybe they could knit, if they just had thumbs. Simon and Charlotte were both like this. Harley, though, doesn't have this talent. However, she has recently discovered that she can open the accordion door into the laundry room
It takes her so long, though, I always want to help! Note that in the picture above she's gotten the door open; all it would take would be one good pull...
I was more successful in finishing my project. Or maybe half-finishing it, since I just have one mitten completed.
I'm thrilled with it! (In the picture, my hand is bent back -- that's what's causing the bagginess above the wrist.) When I have it off, you can see the the stranded pattern pulls in, but, on my hand, it looks fine. Part of the beauty is the way the Poems yarn very slowly moved from pink to lavender, but I think my little bit of colorwork is nice, too.
I'll cast on for the second one tonight, but first I need to work on Honeybee.
And now I'll step up on my soapbox for a moment:
Twig mentioned how some Ravelry forum posters get ugly when talking about designers and publications. Like her, I think this is really unnecessary and wonder why people do it. Are they really this unpleasant in real life? Or are they naive enough to think that they're anonymous or that no one will see their post? If that's how you feel, check out the comments on this post of mine from just a few days ago. A Google search led this guy to my account of how I got the mini-CD out of my iBook. I'm happy I could help him, but this experience really reminded me that even my little blog isn't invisible and even non-knitters might find it. Remember -- don't post anything you wouldn't want to appear on the front page of your favorite newspaper!
