Almost Done

It's been way too hot to knit anything slightly wooly. I guess there's some wool in these--there was no tag in the sweater I unravelled. It could've been recycled indoor-outdoor carpet for all I know. It got much too humid, even next to the AC, to knit. Every time I turned the stocking it draped across my lap and made my leg sweat.

Feh.

But I managed to get down to the calf decreases on the second stocking. They look short, but when they're worn they stretch lengthwise.

The heat even felled the Orange Tornado. He slept all day and saved all his tearing through the apartment and meowing for no reason til 6am. Oh, I'll get my revenge when I cram him in his carrier for a three-hour road trip later this week. He gets carsick.

Maybe it's due to reading too many yarn blogs, but I first read it as: "The heat even felted the Orange Tornado." I was imagining a felted cat.

I think the long haired ones get dreads & dingleberries in the summer so maybe they're felted?

I should go & scrub him up & down the rugs just to see if short haired cats felt.

Those stockings are so great! I can't wait to see you modelling the pair (instead of just the one. I don't know, it makes a difference, ok?)

Awww, poor carsick kitty. I used to have a cat that would get carsick on the way to my parents, but only after we got to the curvy country roads. Kinda made me wonder if I was a bad driver...

Oh man, if you ever make the pattern for those available, they will be at the top of my to-knit list. Sooooo cool. (Great taste in music, BTW, I'm gearing up to see Gary Numan in concert come Monday, and your bands pretty much reflect all of my favorittes... Always good to see like-minded knitters!)
