Four is not too many!
24 November 2002 Some sad news to report: two of the
squirrels have died. Pea, the smallest of the three, suddenly started having seizures, and after a rush to
the emergency vet in the middle of the night he died. Mac died the same way the next day. The squirrel rehab lady said that this type of thing is very
common. Pea was also underdeveloped, and was still dependent on the bottle for
feedings three weeks after the others had already been weaned. I wonder if a Squirrel mama would have been as patient and
loving with him as Terri was.
Ive started my Lornas Laces socks, and Im getting huge ladders on one side so I need
to either live with it or start over. I haven't decided what I'm going to do
yet, so I decided to modify the first pair of
socks that I knitted. They were kind of uncomfortable because I knit them a little short,
and didnt put any ribbing at the top so they tended to sag. Inspired by Beths sweater sleeve fix, I undid the edge, slipped my needles
back in and put on about an inch of ribbing. I tried to do a k2p2 bind off
on the first sock, but couldnt understand the directions and got it
completely messed up. It was frustrating. Here I am thinking Im such a great knitter, and I cant even follow the simple directions for binding
off. Ugh. I gave up and started doing just a basic knit bind off (I dont really care at this point what it looks like)
but since I had cut the yarn (as it said to do in the directions for the k2p2 bind
off) I didnt have enough length for a traditional bind off. So
I tied a knot.
Bad bad bad. They no longer match...they are now Frankensocks.
We have a blanket we keep on the couch in the winter. It's called The Binky. No cat can resist the binky. Here for your viewing pleasure is Axl, the longest cat ever, fully binkified.
11 November 2002 What's been going on? Well, I was being a wee bit lazy about updating this site, and then about a week ago I realized that even if I wanted to update, I couldn't because the host is moving my site to another server. Then I found out that, oops, they lost my site. Luckily, I haven't updated much, so hopefully it won't take me too long to get it back up. If you're reading this, it worked.
First, meet Merfy! A little over a week ago Merfy made herself known to my co-worker, Jon when he was taking a walk in our business park. She was hungry so Jon picked her up and brought her to our office where we fed her and gave her water. I agreed to take her home and foster her until another home could be found. But I think in the back of my mind I knew I would keep her. She's a great little kitty, and so cute! She's a talker, and often demands head scratches. So now we have four cats again. Four is not too many!
I also made Picabou a new doggie bed. It's nothing special, but it is nice for her to have a bed that is big enough for her to be able to stretch out.
