The Pouncing and the Bouncing

Lulu lying in wait by looking innocent in full view of her victim.

Meiko thinking "Wow, Lulu's looking innocent!" while simultaneously checking out escape routes. Seconds after these photos were taken, there was much pouncing and dashing back and forth. Yep, it's a wild Saturday night in the Peeve household!

This. This is my very first colourwork. A very simple colourwork, but colourwork nonetheless. With two contrasting colours of my Nature Wool and a book of 200 knitted blocks, anything is possible! There was much fiddling and cursing and now there are many many ends to weave in, but I have to say I'm pretty happy with this. The colours work together, the knitting is nice and even even preblocking, and the yarn is nice and soft.

Now I'm gonna go eat rice crackers and dip for dinner. Which, to me, is more evidence that I am in fact an adult than anything I have yet encountered.

Never trust a cat looking innocent. NEVER.

I like the colors in the block! And I know what you mean about dinner - when I have chips and salsa or popcorn or such for dinner, I feel very adult. And non-parental, since I don't have to model good eating behavior!

Ooh, I love that colour combination. So what is this mystery object going to be?

oooh, I love the olive and the eggplant colors you've worked into that!

I had the pleasure of pouncing, chasing kitties this weekend, unfortunately it sucks when they' do it at 3 am in a house you've never slept in before, therefore sleeping lightly.

Whenever cats look innocent they are or have been up to something. :)

I like your colorwork, and the colors go well together.
