With a sad heart, I must say that Rizzle (aka Rizzle Cakes, Rizzle Kitten, Rizzle Dizzle Dazzle) passed away yesterday from feline infectious peritonitis (FIP). We only received the diagnosis Monday, but over 24 hours, her condition deteriorated quickly. We will miss her terribly. It’s not the same knitting without someone trying to eat the yarn. That being said, I will return to writing next week, just going to take some time.
It’s Friday! Woo-hoo! After the hectic week at work I’ve had, I’m ready to slow down for the weekend. I’m actually genuinely excited for tomorrow. No, nothing big is happening. I’m just excited to relax a little bit.
I’ve got my “costume” all ready for work. It’s a bit haphazard and more inspired by than actual costume. The hat was thrown together this morning with felt and superglue, but you might recognize the knit bow from a much earlier post. Those pieces, black trousers, a brown jumper and my new shoes make up the extent of my “costume.” Can you guess who my inspiration is?
I have been listening to King Charles’s album for about a month straight now. Never fails, if I need a good cheer-up, his music will do the trick, and lately I’ve been knitting stockings along to it as well. It’s just feel-good stuff! I thought I’d share one of my current favorite tracks with you in honor of the middle of the week – Wednesday!
After a really hectic last half of the week (hence the real slow-down on posts), I had the most relaxing weekend I’ve had in ages. With the rain falling steadily through Saturday and a little bit Sunday, it was so nice to just stay in and do nothing.
Just haven’t gotten a whole lot done on this project lately
I don’t know if anyone else has this problem, but I’m really struggling with my desire to knit for hours on end and my desire to get healthy. I mean, how does one balance working out and knitting times?
Last week, Hannah of Not Your Average Crochet was so very kind to give me the Versatile Blogger Award. I have to admit, she kind of made my day with that. So, before I say anything else, I would like to thank Hannah.
It took just about the entire weekend to pick out what I wanted to make with the new yarn my brother gave me. I knew I wanted a shawl so I could show off the colours of the yarn, but I wasn’t entirely sure what to go with.
