The Week May 22-28, 2017

Last week’s goals with progress indicated:

    • Finish (sans blocking), wear, and photograph Aspen. Update Ravelry project notes.
      Done. But I’m still working on it; I didn’t pick up enough stitches for the button bands & collar so it pulled (you can see it in the bottom hem in the picture) and it wasn’t going to block out. So I ripped the whole thing out and picked up 1 st per row of knitting instead of 3 st for every 4 rows. I’m on the second set of short rows (after the buttonholes) and might finish today, if not then tomorrow for sure.

Owl Creek, Aspen

  • Look at and maybe choose patterns for a summer top to get started on.
    Nope. I was too busy being unhappy with the collar on Aspen.
  • Work on Aranami (knit at least 1 new wedge) OR spin more.
    I finished a row of wedges and started the next row! I have 2 rows left and then a different final row that gets bound off all at once (instead off binding off individual wedges). I’m going to have yarn left over, too. Maybe I’ll make some socks with it – it is sock yarn after all.
  • Go to TKD once or walk on the treadmill.
    Nope. I know I need to do these, I just am not.
  • Ethan’s graduation party planning: order food from Wegmans, pig from that place in Alexandria or Arlington or wherever the pig place is.
  • Make college physical appointment for Ethan for the 1st week in June.
  • Start cleaning for Melanie’s visit Memorial Day Weekend.

This week:

  • Finish (sans blocking), wear, and photograph Aspen again. Update Ravelry project notes again.
  • Look at and maybe choose patterns for a summer top to get started on.
  • Work on Aranami (knit at least 1 new wedge) OR spin more.
  • Go to TKD once or walk on the treadmill.
  • Ethan’s graduation party planning: remind Ky to order the pig.
  • Super clean kitchen, vacuum Thursday, clean bathrooms Friday for Melanie’s visit.

I also visited the kittens again on Saturday. I have a favorite, or at least a type; I’m not sure if the same black kitten fell asleep on me this week, but a black kitten definitely fell asleep on me and I really, really would love to have one of them. Pucka, the girl, is a little odd and standoffish with the others, but she’s also a bit of a battle cat. Selkie, the boy, still suckles his mama (Irelyn) even though the kittens are fully weaned at this point. But he’s also an adventurer and a bit of a battle cat (not afraid to play). Either one of them would fit in well with Jeff & Eevee and the dog crew.

Selkie
Awake!
Selkie
Getting sleeeeepy …
Selkie
Asleep! All in a few seconds.

Totally zonked out Selkie. I repositioned his head so it didn’t look uncomfortably crooked.
