McGyver and some kitty love...

Thanksgiving was nice, very quite which was great. Yes, I realize Thanksgiving was five days ago, but for a girl with no internet access, oh wait, let me rephrase that, with dial-up internet access, I was not about to blog while I was at my parent's house.

It was very relaxing. My family and I played dominos and I go to spend a lot of time knitting. Dominos and knitting... It's official... I am now an 80 year old woman trapped in a 25 year old's body. Just throw in a walker and old McGyver episodes and I'll be all set *sigh* oh well.

So I finished these:I also started a pair of socks for my dad. Just a simple pair of black socks made out of KnitPicks Gloss. In fact, I finished one of them. The beauty of the whole thing is my dad was there the whole time. I think when it comes to knitting he's not very curious so I can get away with knitting his Christmas present right in front of him. Picture coming as soon as I have some good light. Taking a picture of black socks is tricky!

So someone asked me why I haven't had pictures of Ludo, my cat, up recently. I don't really have a good answer to that. It's not for lack of pictures. I have some great ones. Like this:If you look close enough you can see my roommate knitting on the couch behind him. Did I mention I taught my roommate how to knit? I'm so proud!

Then there's this oneThat's Ludo and my roommate's cat Hemi. She got Hemi right before I left for the summer so I didn't get to know him until after I got back, but Ludo had all summer to get friendly... obviously. There's a lot of kitty love going on right there.

Awww kitty love, that is so cute!

Hey what's wrong with dominoes and knitting! :) I get constantly teased by my coworker for my knitting. (She is 25 and says only people over 50 knit). Whatever I say. Using our mental capabilities and hand/eye coordination means we will all stave off mind problems, right?

Glad you had a quiet, relaxing Thanksgiving!

Oh, cute kitties... I love that they're basically the same colorway but a different kind of fiber!

I'm glad you had such a relaxing Thanksgiving! I can't wait to see the black socks.

Ludo really looks like one happy kitty!

I love your most recent FO. If I wasn't on such a baby kick, I'd def. make some for myself!

Better than being a 25 year old trapped in an 80 year old body! LOL!

Thanks for the Ludo pix. He's as cuddly looking as ever!

Awe the kitties are adorable and I really like your socks. I love single color socks right now, the pattern really pops. (and the color is festive too =))

Oh, all the kitty love makes me smile! I often feel like an 80 year old woman trapped in a 28 year old body.

Eighty year olds should be so lucky. Remember, they're saying "what the *&^$$# happened!"
