I feel like it's been a little blah in the blogging department here lately (aside from the bird invasion), but the truth is, there has been working, working, collapsing in a pile of books on the weekend and more working the last few weeks. But there has been some knitting going on around the edges.
For example, in a fit of boredom with everything else I was knitting a couple of weeks ago, I went through my pile of patterns-I mean-to-knit-Real-Soon-Now and cast on a Falling Water scarf. Saturday I finally had a chance to block it.
I also finally finished the socks I've been working on for approximately the last two months. Apparently I wasn't in the mood for plain knitting. I expect these to be very comfy basic socks. They're a tad more blue than they look in this photo.
There are the usual random mittens kicking around. There would be more, but I have a pair in time out waiting to be reunited with the main color of yarn, which was left at a friend's house. I'm not entirely certain whether I failed to pack it back in the knitting bag, or whether the resident felines thought it looked intriguing and helped themselves. (I feel so at home with loaner cats to help me knit.)
And speaking of 'helpful' cats, Biscuit has renewed his interest in my breakfast cereal. Or rather with the milk that is on the cereal. He's looking shyly aside in this photo:
But don't underestimate him. It's only because I was pointing the box-that-makes-nasty-flashes at him. The truth came out a few minutes later:
I do have to keep a close eye on him, because if my attention wanders from the bowl I'll have a fuzzy face stuck in it before I can say 'That's my raisin bran, you twerp!'. One of these mornings I'm going to eat chili for breakfast, just to weird him out.
