Random graveyard pictures





(Mark) Oh the places Kit'll drag her mother to, just to get some pictures... She took these over at the Molly Pitcher Cemetary near where she works. She's going to go back for more when the weather warms up and can wander without freezing her butt or fingers off. Which'll hopefully be soon, since there're some nice examples of just how old her hometown is. She's also planning on hitting the one over by her local Office Max for more photos.

(Me) Yes, Mark's popped up.  And no, I don't have too many muses.

This... is my Mark muse. And yes. Most of mine are from the WWE. Why? Fruc if I know. (Mark) Because she's obsessed with it. (Dave) Coulda told you that. (Me) Since when is that a bad thing?

I've got pictures!!!

Well, I got hold of Ashley right after the kids were dismissed at work and got pictures of her wearing the cabled shawl! Now without further ado!



Yes, the top's ribbed, so it'll wrap around her neck like it does, and not have the main body up around her neck. It also goes down each side and down through the tail. Yes, I said it, tail. That's kinda what it looks like. Thankfully, it's warm enough! *happydances*

And yes, I made the lil pin adorning it, too! (Hah! Semi-multi-talented! Bet y'all never saw that comin'! (Hunt muse) Don't mind her too much, folks. She's just really happy it's Friday night.) Here's a couple pics that Ashley took of it. (Thank you, Ashley!)

...Or not. It's not showing up on my computer, even though I know I saved it. *smacks said comuter* Well, I'll have to try again tomorrow. But trust me, her pics of the pin are way more awesome than mine. (Hunt muse) 'Course they are. She's got a better camera. (Me) Obviously.  Yes folks, one of my muses just made his blog debut!

I'll introduce Hunter properly tomorrow, when I'm not quite so nuts from work. (Hunt) Like she's ever truly not nuts from work (Me) Hey!


Yes, that's my Hunter muse... Do not mess with Trips. He's got a sledgehammer and he knows how to use it!

Anyway, catch y'all later!
Tchuss,
Kat

Randomness, and no shawl pic

I know I promised y'all a picture of Ashley and her shawl today, but our paths keep missing each other. Yes, I've relayed a message thru her hubby that I'm grabbing her after the kids get let out to take her picture with her shawl. *Evil laughter*

However, I have current!pictures of the baby blankie!


Somewhat blurry...




 Better angle and less blurry!


Ah, just about purfect! And yes, I know there's a line where I changed skeins and dyelots on it... Not much I can do about it...


 And now to socks! This is the sock I mentioned last post and how distracting it was after Ashley's shawl was done. Well... I've been good and not gone after it lately. Yet...



 Above is a video of one of several songs that's had me on a Toby Keith kick for the last... Month or so. Hope you folks enjoy!

Anyway, that's all for now.

Tchuss!

I'm baaaaaaaack!

At least for now. Was having issues with th computer shutting down on us (Yay, family computer!) and not restarting for days. Hm... Time to put money aside to fix my lappy or just invest in a new one. Thoughts, Bloggo? Any reccomendations on a good laptop brand? Personally, I'm leaning towards another Sony Viao if I can get my hands on one. But that's just my personal preference.

Finished knitting!
I've actually got a project done! Knitted up a ribbed cable shawl for one of the art teachers/newbie knitter at work.



Yes, I know that's it's still on the needles in these pics, but they're the only ones I have of it at the moment. The top is of it as a whole, the bottom is a detail shot of the cabling. This is the first time I've done cabling on anything, let along my first proper-sized shawl. I actually rather enjoyed working on it, and have a sweater idea that a couple of my coworkers planted in my head. So, that just may be the next thing on my needles after I'm done with the baby blanket for Jo's grandson.

Still to be completed projects
Well, the baby the blanket was intended for is already here, so I'd better get my rump in gear, huh? Sadly, I don't have any photos of it as it stands right now, so I guess I'll have to get some tomorrow... Along with the finished shawl pics. *sigh* Now, to stay away from the sock I've got in progress...


And now for something completely different!


This... Is what happens when you have a muse who is addicted to LMFAO and Party Rock Anthem... And who happens to love shuffling.
