Holy Procrastination, Batman - I hate when so much time goes by between posts! Especially when nothing much is going on around here.

Here's some stuff I'm knitting:

After a hiatus of several years, I suddenly feel like knitting socks again. Not plain socks, but nothing too complicated either.

This sock - I think it is from "Favorite Socks". A simple lace pattern. I like the look of patterning that extends down the top of the foot, but I don't like the feel of it when I'm wearing them. So I stopped the patterning at the ankle.


Also, these, with a simple twisted cable pattern on the legs.


Socks are fun!

Then, because I was feeling nutty and retro, I knit this:

This is the dishcloth from Mason-Dixon Knitting. I love it more than someone should love a dishcloth. Here it is, in situ, hanging from my circa 1961 ker-AZY stove/oven:


In Momogus Knits knitting, I knit these:

These are Easy Colorwork Headbands, you know, for like skiing and schussing and stuff like that. Clearly there is a sizing issue. The manly one at the top is way too big. The girlier one at the bottom is the 2nd one I knit and is the proper size to hug your head in a warm and attractive way. Pattern to follow.

Also, you may not have guessed it, but cats apparently LOVE easy colorwork headbands. The second I put these down on the windowsill, this happened:

Nuts (orange), Funny (grey tabby on carseat) and Silly.
And then this happened:

Nuts, Funny, and Caroline! Ooooh, what are those headbands doing in our window???!!!

Crazy cats....

Obviously, they don't feel threatened by your headbands. But do they love them? Do they welcome then like long-lost siblings? We need more pictures of the cats and headbands!

Sorry about multiple comments, but the computer made me do it.

GG - I thought they might feel a little bit threatened by them. They seemed mighty vigilant all of a sudden. Rest assured if I ever get any more cat-headband pictures, I will definitely post them!!
