It’s finished. And quite lovely if I do say so myself. I showed my neighbors upstairs and her 9 year old daughter loved it. (She’s a crocheter, but I told her I would teach her how to knit before they move.) I’m thinking I might make her one for Christmas, maybe in some pinks. She’d definitely get some use out of it.
I liked the project. Especially seeing how the colors all flowed. The yarn overs, as I expected, were a pain in the butt. Overall not too many problems though.

My other good news?
My Secret Pal sent me a very, very nice gift. I got it this afternoon, yay me! She knows the way to my heart I tell you! 5 skeins of yellow, (the most perfect shade I might add), Debbie Bliss cotton DK yarn, chocolate, (ALL mine), and a bottle of Warm Vanilla Sugar hand soap from Bath and Body Works.
She also sent Scout two adorable outfits for the summer! Isn’t she the greatest? I have to say that I really had fun this round!
I drove with Shawn to work this morning to pick up our new kitten and here she is. She’s a bit timid, but very playful. She has already gotten into the yarn, (I’m working on Scout’s diamond sweater), and likes to bat at my knitting needles. I have to say I’m a bit disappointed with Dalton though. Normally we don’t have problems with him warming up to kittens, (I’ve foster mommy’d kittens before), but he was hissing at her today. Jealousy doesn’t suit him. I hope he gets over it soon.
We don’t have a name yet, so if you have any suggestions by all means, leave a comment! I thought “Snoopy”, but I think it’s too much of a boy name. We’ll see.
So that’s been my week. Oh, and I went to UCLA to see someone about my TMJ. They really didn’t tell me anything different, but they want me to go back for a CAT scan, X Rays and they want to do a dental impression for a splint. In the meantime, they just said to continue taking the Ibuprofen and muscle relaxers. My jaw is feeling a bit better, though it’s still sore. I’ve been trying to stretch my muscles in my mouth and it seems to help even though it still hurst. It doesn’t hurt as much. I guess that’s a start.
