Knitting, spinning, pets, food and other thoughts

Keeping track …


A good use for those pieces of sock or other yarn we all have around – marking_inc.jpg
use them to mark increases or decreases as you knit, in this case it’s increases along the side of a sleeve, and it sure makes it easier to track how many I’ve done. This is the 2nd sleeve, and I’m getting close to the top. I’m definitely ready to finish this project and move on!

The paper towels in the kitchen are a fun cat print, with various sayings on them, and one of those is “No outfit <or project or keyboard!> is complete without a few cat hairs.” Here’s one of the reasons that’s so appropriate around here – I was surprised my arms were long enough to get the shot. The first couple of tries weren’t on target, but thanks to the wonders of digital photography, I improved with practice, holding the camera over my head (that’s my knee and toe at the top of the frame).


Lunch today was a Clean-Out-the-Fridge Stirfry; some nice baby bok choy, green onions and leftover chicken that all needed to be used up, a few carrots for color, a package of silken tofu, all sauced with dark soy sauce, some chili paste and black bean sauce, and a dash of sesame oil. Turned out quite tasty, if I do say so. As you can see, the wok gets a lot of use.

  1. giggling re the cat hairs. A friend of mine says, “The dinner guest who complains about a cat hair on his/her plate is the one who doesn’t have a cat.”

  2. Well here they get a lovely blend of long- and short-haired cat + Australian Shepherd mix πŸ˜‰ Fortunately most of my friends are cat people!
