Cat Video blog – revisited!

In 2005, I posted on my LiveJournal blog a video of my cat attacking the “mini me” I had knitted him. It was my first time editing and posting a video to my blog, let alone a cat video. The only other video+web I had done was a video from France a few years earlier, but it was put up on a webpage, not a dynamic blog.

This began my journey into videoblogging.

Twelve years later, I made a “mini me” for a friend’s cat. I caught him on camera the other day playing with it in exactly the same way Alladin still plays with his mini-me. So, I decided to take a trip down nostalgia alley. Please enjoy this cat video, starring Salem.

 

I’m a champion!

I finished up some knitting projects recently, and have a great announcement about a shawl I’ve been working on since 2015.

I finished the Nouveau Beaded Lace shawl I’ve been working on in black Baruffa Cashwool with silver beads:

2017-04-16 12.50.02I took it to the Clark County Fair and Rodeo, which was April 12-16. When  I got there on Easter Sunday, I made a beeline for the Fine Arts building, where I proceeded to search around for my shawl…

I found it! With a big blue ribbon for Best in Class (best hand knitting) and a big purple ribbon for CHAMPION! It took the best in its section, including all other needle arts.

I’m not sure there’s a Best in Division. If so, probably one of the beautiful quilts got that– as it was, I had a point docked for “presentation” because I didn’t turn it in inside a bag.

I’ll post a few more knitting projects later today. It’s been Finish Up month here at my house, with socks, gloves, scarves, and a sweater all reaching completion!

I’ve been knitting.

Made a cat for my Kiki’s cosplay, and then cast on for another Tentaculum scarf.

It’s such a nice, easy pattern. Very soothing to work on.
