Kitties and knitting and stuff

I was talking with some of the girls at my SnB today, and we were discussing some of the things that bug us about knitting blogs. I mean, if you're advertising your blog as a knitting blog (or in my case a knitting and crochet blog) then it should be mainly about knitting, right? I mean, I shouldn't be reading endless political rants or constant talk about your kids or pets, or pictures of them! Of course, if it's your personal blog that also talks about knitting, that's another scenario entirely.

So, not to be a bad knit blogger and only be posting pics of my cats, here's a picture of my cats and my knitting:

The knitting in that picture is my multidirectional scarf, which I started today. Here's the progress at the moment:

And in FO news, I've finished my mini-Clapotis with the Hipknits silk I got from my SP4:

I'm also close to finishing my ankle socks. Just need to finish the toe decreases, which I'll do while watching Netflix as soon as I get my cup of iced tea. My zebra shell is also going very well. I'm in armhole shaping at the moment, and since it's sleeveless that means it's almost done. :)

Hey there! The colorway of the multi-directional scarf is gorgeous!!! I love it. :)

I have no knitting on my blog (and haven't for awhile) does that make me a bad kitty? I have a postcard in the mail for you soon, btw. Angela

The multidirectional scarf is fabulous! Please tell me there are direction online for how to knit like this. I'm thinking afghan.

God, I'm so ambitious. Too bad it rarely sticks.

Hello both of you!

Angela - thanks for the postcard, I'll be looking out for it.

And as for the multidirectional scarf, it's a very easy concept of short rows that can be applied to anything. For an afghan the triangles would be huge, but I think it would still look amazing. (You could also use strips!)

If you google 'multidirectional scarf' there is a pattern very similar to the way I'm doing it that could easily be adapted.
