Less than a year later…

I am mainly posting to see what it is like to post with my new phone.

Dumb cat…

So, my cat likes to eat live plants…totally fine by me,  I’ve totally given up trying to protect her from eating this she shouldn’t. I find she learns if she eats something nasty once, she usually doesn’t do it again. Well, my mom recently decided to retire and her work gave her a bunch of flowers. Our house now has flowers in every room (kitty heaven). Each must be a different flavor because she is trying them all. Anyways, one is this huge bunch that is tall in a large vase. She obviously wanted to eat the flower at the top that looked different so she decided to climb on the vase to reach it and knocked it over. There was this huge downpour of water and we have a hardwood floor that is old and doesn’t like getting wet so I’m in this panic cleaning up this mess.

My cat was a bad kitty and I told myself the next time she was bad, I was going to force her to wear an outfit… Hehe, so I bought this adorable dog dress that is like a ballerina outfit. It is pink with a heart, it is sparkly, and has tulle! Needless to say, I thought it was so cute and worst case, the dog could wear it since they are the same size and the dog loves wearing clothes.

So, I got to the cat, and she knew something was up…so I tried to sneak it on her but I could never get her paws through…apparently dressing my cat is a two person job. But she didn’t attack or bite me which is a plus..apparently, I’m allowed to do anything to her, anyone else would have gotten bit. Heck, I was expecting a nice chomp out of my hand… It looked adorable what I did get on her but I couldn’t get a picture. I think if I had help to hold her while I got her paws through I could have done that so when the family gets back I’m so doing that.

The dog on the other hand loved the outfit! I put it on her and she pranced around the house like the girly girl she is… she was running and jumping and trying to attack the tulle which made her look like she was dancing. Then, when I go to take the picture she acts like a total tom boy and is attacking a bone without mercy and won’t drop the dang thing…so my pictures of her stink but still make me giggle. The best part though was the cat saw the dog with the outfit on and almost attacked her because she didn’t want the dog wearing her outfit, even if she couldn’t stand it. My cat is odd…but I love her.

I gots a package!!!!!

I love swaps… they are awesome ways to meet new people and the Malabrigo swap by far has to be my favorite one…. everyone is so nice and we all spoil each other so well!! This package was made lovingly by one of the best stalkers of all time, Jacqui722on Ravelry.

I got so much awesome stuff!!! I got 4, yes FOUR skeins of aquarella minas which is gorgeous and chunky and so lovely! I have no clue what to make with it at the moment but for now I’m content staring and petting it! Edible wise, I got lindor truffles (Yum!!! I love those things! So rich, so creamy, so good), pop rocks (Another fun treat I love… I’m so going to share with my neices since they’ve never experienced the crackling goodness!), tea in those to go water bottle packets which is awesome because those are all I take with me to work and I’ve never seen this kind and they look so good! Bookwise I got a hilarious and lovely book by the Yarn Harlot! I love this book, just glancing at it so far I’ve already giggled quite a few times! There is a really cool circle notebook, Kookaburra Woolwash (which I’ve always wanted to try!!), awesome soap that smells so good (It is Kiss my Face olive and honey soap), a lovely smelling cucumber melon candle (which is now lit in my room XD), some Burt’s Bees Hand Salve (which I so needed because I’ve been spinning silk lately and my hands are so dry (because I wash my hands all the freaking time (nursing habit)) and the fibers stick…I used some and it totally helped!!!) Lastly, but definitely not leastly are my needles. (Aside: is leastly a word?) I got a set of 16 inch 10.5 circular needles from knitpicks!!!! I love their needles and I have only like one other set of 16 inch needles so these will definitely be used in the next couple of weeks!!! Thanks so much! And finally, she made me a home made set of knitting needles that are about a size 8 she said. They have a pretty polymer clay top that is blue with sparkles! They are sooooooo pretty and thoughtful and I’m definitely going to use them and add them to my new pretty knitting needle collection! Thank you so much for the awesome package!!!  

Now for the photos….first the whole package:

Just the yarn:

Everything but the yarn (I took this because in the other picture you can’t see my uber awesome new homemade knitting needles!):

Irony…

I made a post how I never win things and then one day I win something and within a week I win a blog contest. How ironic! I won a neat contest over at FineMartialFiber’s blog…Since I came from Ravelry though I had an option of getting yarn for a prize and she sent me some gorgeous yarn that my cat loves as much as I do! Thanks so much!!! Oogle at the goodness:
