Although this behavior is frowned up in my family, I finished up the last quilt square for my Barn Raising Quilt at dinner yesterday. Over Pho. I waited to pull it out until the meal was over and we were drinking bubble tea while waiting for the check. Still, this is considered slightly bad manners in my family. But I was so excited, after years and years of knitting one of these squares here and there, to finish up the last one.
They look pretty all laid out, but I need to spend some time putting together a nice variation of color and hue, to make sure it all works. Some time ago, I purchased some black skeins to use for edging/sewing, but as I look at the squares, I think that may be too dark. I'm going to try either a dove gray or something in a buff range.
Evil Kitty Dingus REALLY likes knitting. He likes everything about it — we've never had a cat quite as attentive to the whole process as he is. He sits in my lap and quietly lulls me into the belief that he is not a threat before striking mid-stitch. He was delighted to come across some leftovers tucked into this basket, but a lot less happy when he realized I was onto him. I'm going to have to knit a few yarny toys for him this weekend.
