How sweet are these kittens? Many of them are kissers. They love to sniff our lips and occasionally lick them. The babies love to rub their faces on Michael’s stubble – I think it’s like a mommy tongue. It’s really gross when Puddles rubs his nasty, food covered face against our nice, clean ones, but what are you going to do? He’s a sweetheart, a lover, and I wouldn’t want it any other way (but I’m not going to lick him clean. Yuck!).
With so many kittens, it really is hard to give each one the time he/she deserves. When I sit down, they all want to be in my lap. I actually love the big family love fest, but it’s hard to fit that many babies in.
The picture looks a little weird because I Photoshopped the image off of my t-shirt. I use old clothes that I no longer care for when hanging out with the kittens since they are likely to be clawed to pieces.
Despite the large, needy family, I’ve managed to start and finish a few knit projects. I know, I know, I had done so well getting my WIP list down. I have 2 deadlines coming up. My sister-in-law and brother are coming in a few weeks, and I would like to send them back with 2 set of dishcloths – one for them and another that they are giving away as a gift. I am also attending a baby shower in a few weeks (I think 5), so I am making a baby dress. I don’t think that the mother reads my blog, so I’ll post the pictures as it comes along.
Here are the dishcloths (the whole set of 3):
Yes, I can count. The third and fourth pictures are of the same dishcloth. It’s an illusion knit – when viewed head-on, it just looks like a regular, striped dishcloth. When viewed from an angle, it looks like a checkerboard. Cool, no? You can put any hidden design you like in these things.
The baby dress is going to be made in Berroco Comfort dk. I am making it mostly in lilac with yellow and pink accents. The color names are something more frou-frou on the color card – I’m practical and call ’em how I see ’em. I’ve only worked on the swatch at this point. I didn’t get gauge and I had to go down a needle size. It won’t be so bad if I’m a little off since the baby will grow into it pretty quickly. Still, I don’t want her to have to wait until she’s 7 to try it on.
What do you think of these pictures for Sunshine’s advertisement? Do they make you want to take her home?
