Random Acts and Blog Stalkings

I like to stalk Blogs. In some ways I wonder if it's living vicariously. It's fun to see what others create. It's also fun to leave a comment. Especially, if I find one that doesn't get that many comments. I suppose one would think I'm doing it to get a return visit.

Really, no, I don't care if they reciprocate or not. I just think it's nice to go around and say hi, someone's out there and reading. I once belonged to a group that did that to guestbooks of personal websites. It's nice to suddenly see a comment if you don't ordinarily get them.

On to knitterly stuff:

I really do knit. I finally have the proof it. LOL I found the camera just right where I thought it was. The batteries took a bit of searching. Funny, if you try to hide something from yourself, find it right away. Put something where you'll find it again, and the darn get's lost. I find strange how I can outwit myself 100% of the time.

Here is a bad picture of Le Petite Fuzzy Thing. (Click for bigger)

You didn't think I was going to model it, did you? This was the best of seven tries, two of which disappeared. The two that Mr. Butterscotch was doing his nose tickle demonstration.

This is Miss Tennesee with her Pop's sock, affectionately known as Poopy or Poopy Tail by her pop. She's is totally a Pop's girl. Will not allow anyone to pet her silky royalness. I know, it's a bad picture, a black and white cat on a black sheet.

Here is the sock on the scanner. I tried to put the cat on the scanner as well, but somehow that did work out.

Just a minute, I think I need another band aid.

That was from yarn I tried to dye royal blue, but got what you see there instead. DSO likes the way it turned out anyway, so I guess it's not total failure. Where's the other sock? Um, yeah, he won't be wearing these til the weather gets colder so I think I have some time. Wait, this is Western NY, it could be cold weather next week.

I'm still plugging away on my Mom's late bday pres, Soliel. Don't worry, it's still early, last year she got it mid January with her Christmas present. I'm also on my second skein for the Faroese Shawl. I'm saving pics of those for another post, since the camera ate the brand new batteries in 15 pictures.

Bootsie says,

"That camera really sucks."

I've been tagged for a Meme. I'll get to that next post. Hmmm, I don't have a 23rd post. I'll think of something.

My heart goes out to all those people who suffered from Katrina's path.

Also a knitter with 5 kitties!

(me too, though one of the five is an outside adoptee who often we don't see for a couple o days).

Now that would have been a picture to remember. I can just picture what part of that cat would have been shown by the scanner! Nice socks too by the way.
