Lexi in the woods

Cosmo likes to sit on my lap while I read LiveJournal. He starts out well-behaved, but before much time has gone by, a paw creeps out and starts edging up onto the keyboard. And since the space bar is closest to him, and that serves as "page down" while browsing...

If this cat could speak English, the most common phrase in his vocabulary would be "Someone's getting attention, and it's not Cosmo!" It doesn't matter whether it's his brother (Nemo), the bird (Buckminster), or the human (spiritualmonkey). I think he's realized that when he hits the space bar, I yank my attention away from the screen I was reading and start paying attention to him. Admittedly, it's attention of the "cut that out, cat!" kind, but it's attention nonetheless...

Sorry about the picture quality - I took it with the camera phone held at arm's length, so I'm glad it turned out at all well. I tweaked it a little in GIMP, but since I'm an utter novice when it comes to graphics, I could only improve it so far.

I don't think our cats care what kind of attention it is, they just want it.

I ended up here by searching for ultimate sweater machine. Do you "knit" much?

Hi! Yeah, I think it's like kids (or at least, so my friends who are parents tell me) - any attention is better than no attention.

I haven't been knitting much, but lately I've been seriously thinking that I need to get the USM down off the shelf and get back to it. There are several yarns from KnitPicks that I want to get and start swatching up.

Ooh, and a little Googling just revealed that there's now an OS X version of Garment Designer software from Cochenille. I had bought the program right before we upgraded to OS X, and the box has been sitting on the shelf next to the computer ever since, mocking me. :-)

Okay, now I definitely have to upgrade to the new version and get the USM off the shelf. And get the sewing machine out, while I'm at it.

Cool! Have you seen the Yahoo! group?

It's a great resource. I'm an Apple user, too. I'm not having much luck getting started with the machine. I am trying a basic cable and having a lot of issues with it. Hopefully the weights and stuff I ordered will help.

Happy Knitting!
