Wyatt misses you

my little boy has been lounging around, dreaming of magnetic darts to chase.
stuff i've made lately
thank heavens for flickr mosaics. look, it's stuff i've made lately. there's more in flickr but i'm just too lazy to post everything so you're getting the highlights.

my favorite new pattern is this craftster tutorial for fabric grocery bags. i've already made 3 (i gave one away as a gift). i used mine at the market and at the grocery store, and they are awesome. they are way more sturdy than the plastic kind they are modeled on, so they hold a lot more stuff. except that evidently they max out at a 14 pound kitty. poor ellie consented to model the sushi bag but the handle stitching started to rip so i do NOT recommend the bags as cat transport.

i started 2 new sweaters, the military cardigan for me, and barbara walker's top-down raglan cardigan for spicy. the mister is ultra excited to be getting his new sweater, so it's full speed ahead on that one. i made him 2 pairs of socks for xmas. i was afraid he would think that his cabled boyfriend socks were too fancy, but my fears were unfounded. they are his new favorite pair.

this whole blogging thing has proved to be uninspiring of late so i might experiment with my posting format. not that i've figured out what that should be.


  1. Ooo, I'm going to have to bookmark that grocery bag tute. And I LOVE that hedgehog material!

    Looks like you're doing a great job showing Spicy that manly knits don't have to be boring!

  2. I've got so many canvas shopping bags, I'll never need another.

    Missed you, but I see you've been very busy. Love the socks and the hat.
    I am tired of blogging myself. I don't know what to do with it. I am on a constant repeat loop.

  3. Don't you love those mosaics? Nice stuff you've accomplished lately. Poor Wyatt!

  4. Your cat is beautiful! Love your finished items, especially the socks!
