Where the heck?!?!

Sometimes I think there's a black hole living in my craft room.  Its a VERY small room (9x9') and I have A LOT of stuff jammed in here (its the computer/yarn/spinning/sanctuary room).  I think I often spend more time looking for something in here than crafting.  There is some sort of organization, like all my needles are in one drawer, all my wool combs and extra bobbins are in a drawer (you know all the important stuff I know exactly where it is and it has a home) ... but mundane stuff like papers, bills etc. are subject to the wherever it lands rule.

Do you have a black hole living somewhere in your house??

Friday Felines Vol 16 2014

Lovin the fresh air!  And probably stalking a furry critter outside.

So tired

No photo for this post.  I'm working third shift this week in training for work (11pm - 7am).  I've worked this shift before at a hospital on the switchboard weekends after working days at my full time job all week, the hallway to the bathroom reminded me of a Halloween movie and there were some  nights I wished Michael Meyers would come down the hall and end the misery, LOL!

So far so good, its pretty slow between 3-5am - the police radio is silent and there are no 911 calls (or at least that was how it was last night, but I've heard that's the norm).

I woke up this afternoon and felt like I had a hangover ... without the drinking.  Prior to this I was getting up at 6am for day training ... hard switch to make.

I did get some spinning and knitting done yesterday while killing time before working at night.  Hoping tomorrow sleep goes better and I can do some more - today I laid on the couch all day and caught up on tv ... couldn't do much else, hahahah!

So many ends ...

I wove in all the ends that I could (those not on the top row) the other day ... phew!

Friday Felines Vol. 14 2014


My baby girl ... she loves to sit on shoulders (and give kisses) ... I call her Parrot-Cat when she does this.  Sometimes she catches us off guard when we're bending down (like getting clothes out of the dryer) and then its too late, she's latched on!!!

The Franken Blanket

So I started this blanket last January (2013) and while I was hopeful - I didn't think it realistic that I would finish it in one year ... nope.

It has been sitting for quite some time with nothing added to it.  I would love to knit one square a day - but that is also crazy and I know just won't happen.  To complete the row I am currently on, I need 12 squares ... that seems more reasonable!  Let's see if I complete a row by the end of the month!

And yes - I did knit a square today!  The upper left corner (dark purple).
