Messy Time Away

I went out of town this weekend to co-host a retirement party for a relative, and Remy the feline Destroyer of Homes clearly did not approve. I tucked all my knitting (except what I brought along, of course) neatly away before I left, but guess what I came home to?

That was an almost new ball of mohair blend and about half a sweater front. I don’t believe I have a word for what it was when I got home. Gentle sobbing probably about covers it. Remy, of course, was no where to be found.

awful

Seriously, look at this! Did I mention it’s mohair? Did I mention that it’s the same mohair sweater I had to unravel another piece of last week? It’s really a testament to my ironclad self-control that we still have a (living) cat. It took me the better part of a hockey game to get the stupid yarn rewound, and there’s definitely a nasty chewed bit that I may wind up cutting out. I think this project will be spending another stretch in timeout.

Messy Counting

*sigh* This was a full elbow-length sleeve yesterday. It was also a sleeve that wasn’t even close to the right number of stitches.

Apparently stockinette sleeves are not as mindless as I thought.

Messy Blocking

There is a lace shawl blocking under that blanket. Again. I suspect from this picture you can guess exactly why it’s blocking under a blanket this time.

Messy Cat

Apparently the cat knows how to read a calendar, because he sure knew today was Monday.

Today’s Messy Monday brought to you by the little grey monster on the right.

He even had the nerve to purr at me when I walked in and caught him.
