Walk?!! Heck, He Can RUN!!!!

We're having a few difficulties here at the Kitty Rehabilitation Center. It's just over a week since his surgery, he's totally off medications, and apparently he feels great and can't figure out why we won't let him roam freely. Do you know how fast a cat in a cast can really move when there's an open door? Much faster than you would imagine, I assure you. Most of his mornings are now spent in kitty time-out, but by afternoon
it's time for a snooze in the sewing room. Doesn't he look traumatized?

Today I finished Janet's bag
and it's washed, ironed, and ready to go out in the mail tomorrow. And--drum roll please--that 1/4 of a yard of fabric put me just over 60 yards of fabric used up so far this year. I'm not even going to speculate about what percentage of the fabric stash that is, but it's fabric going out of the sewing room rather than in, which is a wonderful thing.

I decided to separate the sleeves to do the sleeve caps on the baby aran,
so now it's zipping along nicely. If I were a foolish knitter, I would start speculating about being able to finish WIP #14 before the month is half over, but having lost 2 weeks to illness & kitty care, I am not about to speculate. The knitting gods would definitely smite me for that one--that would probably earn me a swarm of moths or something equally hideous. Or another 6 weeks of a cat in a cast......
