Not Much Knitting

Yesterday involved almost NO knitting--thanks to Julia Child and her boeuf bourguignon recipe.  Aside from perhaps Thanksgiving, have you ever spent 5 hours preparing ONE meal?  Well, now I have.  That doesn't leave one with much knitting time--and the frustration gives one a pretty wonky gauge anyway.  Mr. Flurry is making a bit of progress
and the ostrich plume scarf is finished but not blocked AND I have not yet cast on the tweed yarn.  I'm rather proud of that unusual display of willpower on my part. 

Theo does NOT enjoy cooking, so he refused to hang out with me yesterday, but like the smart cat that he is....

he decided to hang out by the yarn stash.  After all, where else am I more likely to turn up?

What a sensible cat.

I will admit to having spent five hours cooking for a party once, but not for a single meal. (For reasons that must have seemed good at the time I was embracing my French-Canadian heritage, and made tourtiere, brioche, and buche de Noel, along with some other stuff.)
