Blame It On The Tomatoes

I've been canning like a maniac this week--the last of the tomatoes, both green and red--so knitting time has been pretty limited. I needed a simple project to pick up and work on for a few minutes, and not being able to cast on a plain sock, I started the sleeves of "Ruched Magic" by Lily Chin.

The back has been finished for a year or so, the front is half finished & ran into a problem that will require a little frogging & more attention than I have right now, but the sleeves are a delightfully simple K1, P1 rib with regularly scheduled increases.

Theo is not helping me today, being a bit in disgrace. We had snow last night, and rather than going outside at night and possibly getting his paws wet, he decided to wake the humans up at 1:30 to keep him company. These might be part of the problem:My all-too-sexy slipper socks with google eyes. Theo seems to consider them as invaders, or perhaps younger siblings:Maybe we'll all play a little nicer once we've all had a nap.

Pretty sweater! I like this designer, although I am not able to wear her styles, lol. A little "too much" around the tummy area, ): Oh well, maybe one day(:

What a great sweater - I love how the ribbing does so much of the shaping...

Okay, now, that's funny! Down, kitty, down!

That's right, Theo, show'em who's boss!

Toni, am I imagining things, or was the "Ruched Magic" sweater not on your original WIP list? Maybe it's time for an update.

(And if you figure out how to persuade a cat to sleep through the night, I'd love to know. I'm only vertical today due to the magic of caffeine.)
