New Socks and 2 New Cats

I finished my "happy" socks. I just love them! I don't know when I'll get to wear them but whenever it is, I'm ready! I was visiting a favorite blog the other day and discovered clear clogs. I think they will be the perfect shoes for the hand knitted socks I have spent lots of time on! I'll let you know!

Also, I have adopted 2 cats. First, we adopted Tye. He is about 4-5 years old. He has a sweet personality and he has been very busy finding his spot here in the house. He has tried out 2 chairs in the family room, all the chairs at the dining room table, several chairs at the kitchen table, several stairs on his way up and on his way down. He especially loves my bed at night and that is when I get the most cuddles from him.

Our second cat is Ashlee. She is about 1 year old. She is very shy but loving. She loves attention and loves to be petted, but she doesn't like to be held. She cuddles on her own terms for the most part but she does like to cuddle. She is a little nervous and I wonder if she had been abused. Now she is getting lots of love!

Now, I am working on yet another pair of socks. If I don't buy anymore sock yarn for awhile (yeah right), I have yarn for 5 more pair. Not including this current skein. So, I'm trying to practice self-control in 3 areas, get to the gym consistently, no sock yarn for a few weeks, and cut back on Mexican food. Thank goodness I can still knit! Oh, my shawls in the auction? Each shawl was auctioned for $35. I guess that's okay, but I would have liked to have seen around $50 at least. Right now, I don't think I'll donate any hand-knit items next year.

Cute cats. I've noted on other blogs how many knitters also have cats. Maybe its the soft fur. We do tend to be pretty tactily oriented.

Clear clogs! What a clever idea to show of hand knit socks.

Your kitties are just adorable! I want a kitty so bad but my husband is super allergic. Have fun getting to know your new family members :)
