Y is for Yarn!

It's like a "Best of Yarn Pr0n Friday 2006" and it's also my Y for the ABC-along! Shiney! Y is for Yarn Knitting at home continues apace. So far I've finished 2 socks (don't freak, they're just the Cascade Fixation Ankle socks. Good thing since the first pair don't fit and I only brought one as it is), a dishcloth, and the cuff of my first embossed leaves socks. Today's goal is to start and finish the second Cascade Fixation sock, and turn the heel of the embossed leaves sock. Woo Hoo! Oh, here's the finished Cascade Fixation socks that fit. Finished on the flight here. That pictorial will come later. Abba Modeling the Socks That's Abba. My family seems to like orange cats. There's 3 more kitties to take pics of and show off to you. Abba's a squeaker. When she was a kitten (10 years ago!) she got caught up in a badminton net and nearly choked to death. Between that and crying for hours until my Mom found her and brought her inside, she's lost her meow. But it's so cute to hear her try.

Yes it appears you guys have the recessive orange-cat-gene expressing itself there!

Lovely yarn porn! (except that Black Bunny yarn keeps taunting me!)

Our old cat Netty got caught in a fishing net like Abba. Can you tell we gave him such an original name???

Oh my! Our old orange cat nearly choked to death in the back of an upholstered chair. Is it an orange cat thing?

Nice coordinated socks.

Enjoy your visit!

Huh? Sorry, what were you saying? All I saw was a big phat yummy yarn pr0n collage and suddenly everything went black...

Wow, lookit you go! I'm at the turn of my first Embossed Leaves sock, but sadly, it's been sitting in my wip bag, neglected until the Christmas knitting is done.

Have a great holiday with Abba and the fam!

I've long had a thing for oranges. Grandma always had an orange cat around. Then I had a serial line of them beginning with the two Zacharys (Sr. & Jr.), then Vincent, and now Jake. Do bi-colored tabbies count? If so, I have Zander as well, who is orange and white. Of course, now I've developed a thing for blue cats after rescuing Sammy aka Blue. Have a wonderful holiday.

Ooooh, all that yarn! How can I ever look away again? I'm stuck to the monitor ogling the yarn. YARRRRN!

You sure have a cute kittie. Such a cuddly-looking fella!

Nice sock.

Aw poor kitty with no meow. She's a lovely colour, a real marmelade cat.

The socks look fab.

Your stash is filled with such lovelies.

Great socks. The kitty is pretty too. I also have a kitty with a weird meow. We got her from a house that had kitties AND puppies. My kitty played with the puppy and learned her vocalizations from the puppy. she now barks instead of meows (it's actually a strangled meh! sound). still does it. Even though she has been living in my exclusively cat occupied house for 15 years now.
