Change of Scenery

I’ve relocated for most of this week chez Ladylungdoc, who is letting me mind her kitties while she and her husband are away. It’s a pretty good deal; the kitties get food and meds, and I get to be a Torontonian again for a few days. After living back in Hamilton for almost a year now, I’ve sort of forgotten what that’s like. I’ll be able to get down to the campus library pretty easily, check out some former favourite lunch spots, and maybe even investigate the Purple Purl knitting night for the first time ever.


So far, so good. The cats have explained to me that although I am not one of their usual humans, I am plenty adequate for depositing cat hair on/scratching ears/sitting around with. (Well, it was more like a glance and a “meow”, but I could tell there was more.)

While there are various things resembling “work” that I should be doing at some point, this was a nice chance to limit my knitting projects in the face of impending startitis, and so I have brought with me only Halcyon and Philip’s Socks, and would be thrilled to pieces if I could manage to finish one of them this week. (It is in the realm of possibility – I’m well into the leg of Sock #2 and have only to do the front piece on Halcyon…OK, a bit ambitious, but still…possible.)

I hope your Monday is/has been a good one!


  1. Sounds like a good week to me! Enjoy!

  2. This is such a precious and pretty picture. Kitties are soooo great! Happy knitting! πŸ™‚

  3. There’s always more in a “meow” but with a cat, they’ll never let you know what that “more” might be. πŸ™‚

    Love the kitty pic.

  4. Miss you! Come back to the Hammer soon, k?

  5. I also have the startitis, Steph witnessed my slide this afternoon.

    Kittums! Pets for me. Say hi to the Purl for me too. Your public awaits you here.

  6. That is a very pretty kittie! *scratches* from me. Have a good week. You’re in good company!

  7. I will be up in August. I am told I am being taken to the Purl. Perhaps you can meet us there? Yes. Yarn. Yarn is good.

    (Also, kitteh! What a beauty.)

  8. Enjoy your week! πŸ™‚ Great way to combat startitis.

  9. It’s almost a treat to get back to Toronto after living there and moving to the burbs – and you get to hang with kitties to boot! I’m hoping to hit the Purl on Friday…
