Cause real knitbloggers have cats!

I spent the weekend with mi madre, and also got to spend some time with some old friends (3rd and 8th grade, respectively). Saturday, Jess, my mom and I made the crafting shops rounds: Knitterly, Quilted Angel, and JoAnn's. I resisted the gorgeous tweed yarn on sale at Knitterly, but picked up some cute fabric for Christmas gifts.

We stopped in for a snack at an AMAZING cupcakery called Sift, which serves creative cupcakes with delicious flavor combinations. I had a limonata cupcake--lemon cake with strawberry frosting. Among Sift's delicious flavors were a chocolate peanut butter cupcake, a gingerbread cream cheese, and a pink champagne. I brought a called Irish Car Bomb cupcake home for N--Guinness chocolate cupcake with Baileys frosting. Tasty tasty.

I finished the first of the Wavy Gravy Slipper Socks! And my mom is about to turn the heel on what will be her first completed sock--yay mama.


While I was visiting, I took some pictures of our cat with my sock. It seems that a knitblog is not truly a knitblog until the cat pictures come out :)She thought it was quite plush.

Jess putting the trim on her dress sleeves, and my sock. We were crafting to Ratatouille!
And the first sock, on the foot. The wool is so soft and smooth. I like the texture very much, compared to the first socks I made from a cotton wool blend--which seems scratchier, and does not stay up as well on my ankle.

Groovy colors man!
