Happy Valentines Day!

I got suprised by roses today. I've only ever gotten flowers two or three times tops in the last ten years. It's probably mostly cuz I can't really enjoy them because the cats (and now the dog) feel that any kind of plant HAS to be eaten immediately. I have a few houseplants, and they all have to be kept well out of the range of teeth. You should see them all run when I take a plant down to repot. They're like vultures circling a carcass.

I'm not the only one who can't leave knitting laying around! The dog insists on trying to eat my knitting, too. I keep telling her she's not a cat. (And she's also not a lady. She's a tomboy -- has to dig in the mud and get filthy and wet, then she's happy.) Too bad the cats couldn't be taught to knit (scroll down to the end of the post).

Transformers washcloths for the boys. Started February 10, finished the 12. Made with Bernat Handicrafter. Hard to get a decent picture, the flash washed them out, had to go au naturel.

Fiber Trends felted ballerina slippers for me made with leftovers of Patons Classic Wool. Started back on January 12, finished February 10. A quick knit really, but I got sidetracked. They aren't the prettiest, but the way I wear through slippers they won't last a month, and I have tons of leftovers to use up.

Book light I bought for knitting in the truck when it's dark. I saw this on another blog.

Storm from last weekend. No school on Monday or Wednesday when another storm passed through. Then it turned to rain, so most of the snow is gone. Hopefully this is it for awhile! I want spring to arrive!!

Happy knitting!
PS This is very upsetting. (This link probably won't last long.) A very good friend of mine teaches grade six at that school, but this girl was in the other class. Who could kill a 12-year-old? Stuff like this doesn't happen very often around here, especially not murdered kids. This was the first homicide in Bridgewater (half-hour drive from town) since 1993. Terrible. Anyone on Facebook can check out

I love that picture of your kitty on your knitting. She looks so comfy.

What happened to Karissa is just horrible. It's more than a little unbelievable.

I love your washcloths and those slippers.

Those lights are great aren't They!!! For a buck and you can replace the can't go wrong.

The world is a hard place to understand sometimes......that is so sad. I feel so bad for the mother. To have the last thing you did with your child be an arguement and then they are gone. So sad.
