Finally Some Knitting!

And a blogstalking assignment.

But first the knitting!

You'll remember I'm participating in a cyber babyshower for Kristi (see the "Warm Up The Dutchians" button in the sidebar--it's late and I'm feeling lazy to directly link!) who will be giving birth to a set of triplet boys shortly.

So on Saturday I started with this:


And on Sunday ended up with these:


Close up shot!!!


Three mini-mite hats. I sized down the Black Widow Baby hat to fit a smaller more newborn head. And they're cute spiders, not black widows!

The yarn is some nice washable acrylic I had in my stash. All I know for certain is that the green is Caron's Simply Soft. The blue I've had forever. The yellow was something I swapped for some Regia sock yarn I had (Gasp! Yes, I swapped sock yarn for acrylic yarn!!)

Ok onto this week's blogstalking assignment: pet-cam. Or what does your pet see?

First up is Springs. He's a 9-ish year old Bengalese something or other. He enjoys a sexy blanket romp, warm laps, eating pony tail holders, antagonizing Squeaky, and hiding in my bedroom at night only to re-emerge and jump on my bed at exactly the point when I lose consciousness.

Springs would see:


a wall when he's:


sleeping in the kitty bed in the corner of my bedroom between my Commonawannalaya Lamp and the closet.

Next up is Squeaky, a 6 year old barn cat mutt hailing from Portland (Michigan). Her turn ons include a good brushing, hand raping, raw hamburger and chewing the heads off q-tips.

Squeaky likes to hang out:


On the back of my computer chair. It's all about being higher than the humans I tell you.

When she's back there, here's what she sees:


The back of my head. If you look really closely at the screen you'll see that I'm chatting with The Mad Scientist on MSN Messenger. You'll notice that his chat avatar happens to be Little Pink Nose herself. She's a daddy's girl to the max, although she's really attached herself to Chunky since we left The Mad Scientist.

Off to bed now. Hopefully the aforementioned Springs-cat isn't hiding in the room somewhere!

I love the mini-spiders! They came out so cute!

That Squeaky is pretty handy with the camera to get such a clear back of the head shot.

Dear KBezzie,

If you don't want one of those kitties, I'll take 'em. But, you know that already.

The hats are great. My future children better get some hats like that!
