Cats, Balls of Yarn and Bondage {Can I Say That Here?}

Cats, Balls of Yarn and Bondage {Can I Say That Here?}

I’m about to see my spam stats jump through the roof.  I’ll probably have some interesting Google Ads popping up on Facebook too.  Sadly, if you’re here for *that* kind of bondage, look else where.  Though, if you enjoy a great White Wine Sangria or perhaps a delicious S’mores Brownie, I can help you.  Hey – At least I made you look.

Cat and Dog

KittyGate

KittyGate (I’m the only one calling it that, and I’m ok with it) continues.  Milo (Kitty-Kitty) continues to grace us with his presence daily.  Thing have escalated a bit though.  See, I couldn’t keep seeing Kitty staring at me from behind the glass of our back door, especially with it being as cold as it was last week, so I started letting him come in – and stay in – for periods of time, like hours at a time.  We’ve had to close all the doors upstairs to keep him from getting under our beds.  That seems to be his “the kids are being too loud and it’s overwhelming me” spot of choice.  I can’t say I blame him.  If I could squeeze under a bed and hide, out of reach from anyone, I can’t promise I wouldn’t do it.  He’ll come out for tuna, but I ran out of that a few days ago (I wouldn’t come out for tuna, at least not out of a pouch, but maybe for sushi.)

YarnThe Best Cat Ever

After the kids go to bed, Kitty-Kitty likes to curl up on the couch with one of our dogs.  He’ll snooze there for hours.  He is the best. cat. ever.  No litter box?  No problem.  He goes to the door when he wants to go out.  He seems to be better at it than my dogs are!  I spend Sunday night curled up on the couch beside Mitzi (one of the dogs) and Kitty-Kitty, animals on one side and my iPad on the other, while I tried to figure out knitting.  Despite the rolling balls of yard, Kitty-Kitty never moved.  My children, however, made pretty consistent work of getting out of bed every 20-30 minutes just to be difficult (their favorite hobby some days.)

Yarn on WristSunday Night Bondage

So, the knitting… I tried “arm knitting”.  I found a video from Jennifer at PinkWhen showing how to knit a double infinity scarf using just yard and your arms!  Thank you, Jennifer!  I have to say, it was FAR easier than I expected it to be (I made another Monday night and will probably become a yard hoarder sometime in the near future.)  The hardest part is finding the time to do it… and not that it’s “that” time consuming, but once you get started, you’re a little “bound at the wrists”.  Literally.  I’ll have to snap a picture next time, assuming I can figure out how to do that with yard wrapped around both of my wrists.  Assuming my kids don’t use my incapacitation against me, I know what all the ladies in my life will be getting for Christmas…

ScarfWhat do you think?  Pretty, right?  If you need me, I’ll probably be on the couch or at the craft store.  If I end up in a cocoon of yarn, just leave me.

  1. I think that scarf is beautiful and I’m uber impressed that you knit it yourself.

      Thanks! I finally figured out how to knit using needles too… Now, if I can figure out the lingo and how to read a pattern, I may actually be able to make something!

    I wish my cats would just go to the door when they wanted to go to the bathroom, ha ha ha! And love the scarf, what a cool trick!

  4. I love the fact that the cat is better at going out than the dogs lol. And that’s an awesome trick for the scarf 🙂

    You did a great job on your scarf!! Love it! Love the cat to btw… 🙂 I would love to learn to make a scarf one day. After a conquer a few other things I’m going to give it a try. 🙂

  6. Oooh, that scarf is divine! Love it! I’ve been meaning to learn how to arm knit for a while – I crochet and love it, and the arm knitting looks like it’d be fun for a quick project to pass the time!

    Love the story about your cat – a friend of mine has two dogs and five cats – they are all hilarious together.

    Stopped by from SITs!

    Love the scarf! And your cats are too cute!

  8. I love that scarf! So perfect! I wish I had skills to make something like that! 😀

      It was SERIOUSLY easy! You should look up her tutorial. The hardest part is the “casting on” which is the first row. Once you figure that out, it was so easy! I’ve tried regular knitting with needles and never been able to get it, but after doing this, I was able to pick up the needles and FINALLY figure it out! I made a hat for my daughter’s American Girl last night. So awesome!
