This morning I learned that Gwyd has learned how to open draws. I discovered this when I went into the bathroom and found him sleeping in the bottom drawer of the vanity, hugging the role of toilet paper we'd hidden there. I haven't decided if I'm going to put a child lock on that drawer,… Continue reading Cat Update
This is Gwydion. Gwyd showed up on Friday in the trap we set to catch Morrigan (who hasn't been seen). He was clearly not feral, but also clearly had been living rough for a while. We pegged him between 8-12 months old. We didn't have the heart to let him go, so we took him… Continue reading Not the Cat we were Looking For
Our little void sprite is venturing out more and more. She still shies away from cameras and sudden movements, but I did manage to get a few pictures. Like what you see? You can help keep the kitties in kibble by visiting my Etsy or Amazon. shops.
I am still playing catch up thanks to the day job. I need a couple of weeks to get my footing back, so I'm going to take my annual blog break early this year. KnotMagick will be on hiatus until August 27, when I'll be back with some major news and announcements (want the news… Continue reading Catchup
If you don't follow me on Twitter or Instagram (@knotmagick on both) you might have missed that we added a new addition to our family last week: Bast is 7 months old and weighs about 7lbs, so they're the most petite of our felines. Yes, that's right. I used "they" for a cat. Because honestly...we're… Continue reading Growing the Pantheon
If you came here expecting something boring about books or yarn, you came to the wrong place. Sophia is unavailable today, so instead you have me, Hermes, your new overlord guest blogger. I'm supposed to write something funny here, but it's hard to type with paws and Sophia doesn't have dictation software. Instead, I shall… Continue reading Catbeast Takeover
Nothing super interesting to show this month, just some repeat projects. I've got a couple of things planned that I'll be working on later, though. The socks are part of my Village gear. I like to keep a pair on the needles at all times to work on during quiet moments. At our training weekend… Continue reading Works in Progress
I don't have a whole lot to show at the moment, but since the holidays are over I have been working on the Evie Shell. I split for the front and back just before Christmas, and since then it has been flying along. I've got about 1" left on the front before I can kitchner… Continue reading Current Projects
Hermes is rather resentful of the fact that the sewing machine took most of my attention yesterday. He's used to me sitting at the computer or reading on my bed when I'm home, so this change to his routine was most unwelcome. In the end, though, he decided to "help" me put together a quilt… Continue reading This is not helping.
I am surprised that the cat is even in the same room with me right now, or that he hasn't killed me in my sleep. Over the weekend, Missouri had some unexpected time off. Since we had time off together, we decided (with about 12 hours warning) to drive down to Memphis so that she… Continue reading Separation Anxiety, Part II
