“Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” G. Bernard Shaw

and then the miracle occurred


My knitting progress this year has been abysmal — as in non-existent. There has actually been a lot of knitting, but there has been more frogging.

However, miraculously, it is Wednesday and I have a Work In Progress! Two, actually.

I have finished the back of Mr. B’s cardigan and started one of the fronts.

This picture contains a gratuitous cat. The Widget is the latest addition and she was recently (Monday) fixed, but we don’t seem to recognize that one needs to recuperate from major surgery. T says she is a Snuggle Kitty because she likes to be near people. She slept on my lap as I knit and she curls up next to me at night. I have never experienced this before although I have loved many cats. Just as an FYI — knitting with a cat on your lap quickly becomes warmish.


I have even made progress on the sock, which mostly lives in the car and only sees the light of day if I am facing a waiting room.

Who knows? I might finish something this year; but I wouldn’t count on it.

  1. I’m glad I’m not the only one who has had a very slow year knitting-wise! But it looks like you are well on your way!

    What a sweet-looking kitty!

    • Her mother was dumped near us. I thought she was pregnant at the time and, sure enough, several months later she resurfaced with a white kitten. The mom is very social, but she has no manners and has now disappeared again — just when I was going to get her spayed! The Widget has had several names, but The Widget seems to have stuck. I guess she’s mine now.

  2. The Widget is adorable. It’s VERY warm with knitting and a cat in your lap! although Hez seems to be disgruntled about me insisting on moving around occasionally and has taken to balefully staring at me from the rocking chair across the room.

    There may not be FO’s but there’s progress! Mr. B’s back is done! Huzzah!

    The end of the year is rather terrifyingly close.
