Friday Felines

I've been off my groove with taking pictures lately, but here is one of Zeus helping me during my sewing endeavours this past week.  I have a busy weekend planned so maybe there will be some photographic evidence.  Orchid Show, Running Club followed by breakfast at the Lions Club, practicing for the Back to Back Challenge...  I may even get around to photographing some of my crafting.  Sigh.  I'm so not inspired to so anything, really.  I'm cold.

All Gone

Finally.  Every last scrap and leftover part ball of sock yarn has been used up.  I feel like Wonder Woman, truly, I do.  How, you may ask?  Take one 3mm crochet hook.  Start a granny square.  Keep going until you run out of yarn.  It works.  Actually, I made 2 medium squares, joined them, then went back to crocheting round after round after round.  The idea is to make this blanket fit a twin bed, eventually.  Since I've finally used up the leftovers, I may have to dig out the box of sock yarn and see if there are any single balls in there that won't go far enough for a complete pair of socks.  This is one of those projects I don't want to be looking at 2 years from now, and shaking my head, wondering what I was thinking.  I have a hideous amount of ends to weave in still, but for now, I am SO NOT inspired to tackle them. It's too dark now to take photos of the blanket but I will show proof soon.

Update:  Yarn Diet still intact, Fabric Diet not so much.  Actually, when I was in the store, I completely talked myself out of the fabric diet.  I am very persuasive apparently.  But it was just a tiny little fall down, merely 2m.  That's forgivable, right?

It's not Friday, But...

Here are some felines for you.  Feeding time at the zoo.  It was a tuna treat that had them behaving so well.
