Can I come in?


This is SeaBass. Yes, as in the movie "Dumb and Dumber". I always wanted to name a cat SeaBass so when they wrestle, I can yell "kick his Ass SeaBass" just like the movie! Soon after the movie, a stray cat showed up at my house. (divine intervention perhaps?) I know, duh!! (who's dumb and who's dumber?) Anyhoo.....not thinking, we put a decorative garbage can (can you use the words "decorative" and "garbage can" in the same sentence?) on the deck just below the window. He thinks that it is out there for him to stand on to let SOMEONE know when he wants to come in. He can telescope that neck of his like ET to get someone's attention. Doesn't he look pathetic?


ShaylaCanKnitI am a A Topaz Dragon!
Hey, I took the online Inner Dragon quiz and found out I am a Topaz Dragon on the inside.
In the war between good and evil, a Topaz Dragon tends to walk the fine line of Neutrality....When it comes to the powers of Chaos vs. those of Law and Order, your inner dragon is a risk taker and answers to no one....As far as magical tendancies, a Topaz Dragon's nature does not lend itself well to the ways of Magic....During combat situations, whether by spells or by claw, your inner dragon will do whatever it takes to get the job done....The Topaz dragon makes it's home on temperate islands and coastal regions. This particular gem dragon is widely known for it's impish behavior and charm.'Unless something specifically interests or affect them, topaz dragons tend to be indifferent to happenings about them.'When born, a topaz dragon is a dull yellow-brown in color, infused with streaks of blue. As the dragon ages, its scales harden, darken and become translucent and faceted. A topaz dragon shines brightly, giving off rays of amber and blue light. 'This Dragons favorite elements are: Topaz, Beauty, and Charm

And Then There Are The Fish

Absolutely could not resist trying to make these fish. Aren't they adorable? When I saw the pattern I just HAD to make the blanket of fish. I love it!!!

Oh, The Places We Will Go

Finally got to take pictures of my projects in various stages of completion. I was a little surprised just how many things I have going on. Why do I think I have to have EVERY shade and pattern of yarn to make more and more socks? Just take a look at the box I received from KnitPics 2 days ago. And what is it? SOCK YARN!!!

Here are samples of socks in progress...would you say I'm just a tad bit scattered?
