Thanksgiving, the Recap.

Eating. Playing Rock Band and Scattergories. Reading. Knitting. Napping. Eating. Mostly just hanging out. It was too short of a visit for me, but probably just right for everyone else.


I brought the cat, Sinon, home with me for the month until Christmas, because with Meredith and Ryan moving, and then visiting his folks in upstate New York immediately after the move, we agreed it would be less stressful for the cat. Plus, I get to enjoy his company for the month. Which means I will have a lot of cat photos here.

I was able to finish one of the second socks and most of the sweater during the sixteen hour round trip, so I'll soon start something else. Maybe even the second second sock. (No, that's not a typo.) I'm also going to dabble in a bit of quilt making on a small scale; a pillow top to begin with. It's something that's been in the back of my mind for awhile, and now that my "studio" is in pretty good shape, I want to get started. For tonight though, I'm going to try and finish up my sweater. And dote on the cat.


Oh, the cat scared me this morning because I couldn't find him for quite some time, despite shaking his food container. Here's where I finally found him:


In the coat closet. Sheesh.


  1. that last picture is priceless.
    and i want those socks.

  2. How nice to cat-sit. How did you get through an 8-hour car ride with a cat???

    Why do we coyly say "studio" instead of just plain studio. We are both creative enough to claim the word!

  3. Cats always find the quiet spots to sleep,lol! Love the finished socks.

  4. How did you get so much knitting done? Did you take the train? Lovely socks, but you can keep the cat--I guess I'm just not a "cat person".

  5. That last photograph is priceless! It gave me a good laugh this morning. Thank you, closet kitty!

  6. Oh you are wonderful to host that lucky black kitty!!!!!!!, catnip crumbled around might ease the transition
    Love the socks
