In Memorial

It has been at least a month since the last time anyone saw Cartman. We started letting her go outside and she got to the point where she did not want to come inside for anything. Later it seemed she was not eating. We were going to take her to the vet, but could not find her. She has yet to turn up. It is speculated that she has crawled in somewhere and passed away.

Even though we were merely her caretakers, she will be sorely missed. She was a mean cat who hated everyone but me. I came into her life in these latter years, but she treated me like I had always been there. She was afraid of her own shadow, but in the last six months she was finally standing up for herself. (Our other cat, Tiny Bastard, would terrorize her for fun.)

However, the carpets are glad she is gone.

Finally, I Have Pictures

All I have is a cell phone with a camera. So the picture quality is not that great. I do have some projects to talk about, but I can't give information on the yarn, because I didn't keep the labels. At least on the expensive stuff. So without further ado...

 
These three are from a knit along pattern I got from WendyKnits. It is called Shetland Pi Shawl KAL. The knit along started August of 2010, but it wasn't until last April that I found the yarn that I wanted to use. I had bought three skeins. Then when I finally started knitting on it September of 2011, I very quickly ran out of yarn. I bought four more skeins, ran out again, bought one more, and still had to shave off the last two rounds of the last chart in order to finish. These pictures are pre-blocking. I still need to weave in the ends before I wash and block. 


Next up is a beautiful little skirt I am knitting for BESTFRIEND. This pattern I got off of Knitty.com. It is called the Bell Curve and can be found here. This one I also started in September of 2011, but ran out of yarn. (What can I say, I was out of work so I had a lot of time on my hands but  no money.) The yarn is Caron Simply Soft in Grey Heather. 


Lastly is the cross stitch I am working on. I bought this at least more than five years ago, but seeing as I am out of work yet again, I have yet more time on my hands. All that is shown in the picture I have done in the last three days. I now have blisters on my thumb and index finger. 

BESTFRIEND took a ton of pictures of our place today, but I need her to tell me what everything is before I can post them on here. That just gives me something more to talk about later.


My Life Sucks

So back in August I moved. I didn't have the internet for a really long time. Now that I do, there is so much I want to look at and do. However, I can't seem to get my shit together and do anything. I have been out of work the last two months. Tomorrow in the light of day I will take some pictures of recent projects and of the new place. Tonight I just wanted to throw a pity party for myself. I keep saying I will write more later, but then later comes and I have still not written anything. My stories are still stuck in my head. Let's see what tomorrow brings.

Until tomorrow I leave you with this picture of Cartman. This was taken before the move. I have to find her in order to take an after the move picture. She has been let outside, where she loves it and refuses to come in. Which is a good thing. Just ask anybody who has had to smell this place.

The title of this post has nothing to do with the actual post. I have been told that my life doesn't suck, but what do they know.

More Coming Soon!

It has been so long since I blogged, and I really don't have the time this morning. However, in the next few of days I will have so much to say. So much to update on. Now I must get back to work.
