Begonia Pink yarn and Fiona thoughts

You had to be fast to take pictures of our now gone, Fiona. She was not one for the camera. Here she is in a blur with her Allison. She began as and ended as, AL's cat. She loved Zach too. She became extremely loving to Fireman and I after the kids moved out. I'm grateful for that personality change. It is odd without her, and I am quick to change the music I listen to, from meloncholy to upbeat. We are missing her......

We could blame it on grief, but I bought some cotton yarn yesterday in a lovely spring pink. I will give this cotton a try because it has a slippery feel to it. Most cottons hurt my wrists.
I think it is destined to become a cowl or a bandanna. The knit time should be short with either option. First, however, I need to finish the Southwest colored cowl and Zach's tie.
I think I have startitis. I have never had 4 items on the needles at once in my life.

1) Mirror Mirror vest. 75% completed
2) Southwest cowl: 75% completed
3)Zach's Back to School tie: 50% finished
4) Fat socks: 10% finished......

and I want to cast on for the pink yarn soon. My monogamous days are gone.....
grief does weird things to you...

I WOULD LOVE YOU TO LEAVE A COMMENT>

Is the yarn in a soft heart shape or is that just me???

Beautiful kitty. They leave big holes in our hearts, don't they?

... and queue Elton John's Crocodile Rock. I heard it on the Knight's radio alarm while I was in the shower and was soon laughing at myself for dancing in the shower!

That is the great thing about yarn. It doesn't even CARE that we are not monogamous.

The new yarn looks lovely. Can't wait to see what it wants to be.

That's not grief, it's a knitters addiciont.And I think with only for projects on the needles you are still doing good!

What a pretty shade of pink! I can't wait to see what you do with it. Glad you have some nice photos to go along with the memories of your kitty.

sorry my dear about the loss of your cherished pet and enjoy your startitis, it really can be a theraputic thing!

Katherine said...

The older I get the harder it is for me to be monogamous. I think I am moving toward retirement knitting!

Sorry you are missing your sweet Fiona! I know that you have learned from experience that grief just has to be lived. You are in my thoughts.

Thank you all for your kind support. IT is hard at times now that we are home without her. Fiona always came to us when we played the recorder....she was drawn to it and it worked every time >SHe would come to Troy's whistling like a recorder too. She loved to lick marshmallows...
Miss you Fiona Jo

So sorry to hear abt Fiona. No matter how many we have, we never get used to the loss.

LOVE that yarn, though. Pretty pink color!
