I Have No Good Title for This Post

The weekend was very busy at our house, with Saturday being both Valentine's Day and the birthdays of Garden Kitty (who turned 10) and Jetsam (who turned 3). We had a great day, and as you can see, it really wore out the birthday boys:

"Why are you taking a picture when we are trying to rest?"

Oh and by the way, Mary - you aren't an idiot! I had started to write my post for Saturday on Friday evening, and apparently when I went to update the date for the post, I inadvertently turned off the comments feature. GK and Jetsam do thank you for the birthday wishes, in any event ...

I can finally show you one of my recently finished projects, which I had been making for The Tim for Valentine's Day.

These are knit from the Kaffe Fassett line of Regia yarn. I would never have put these colors together myself, but they look great, and fortunately, The Tim is not concerned that they are not a perfect match, stripe-wise. He told me he was going to wait to wear them this coming weekend, when we have company.

Last week, I gave you a list of some of my favorite things beginning with the letter "L." Well, Lorraine gave me a "B" to do the meme below.

Use the first letter of your name to find a word for each of the following:

Your name: Bridget

4 letter word: Book

Boy name: Brian

Girl name: Bonnie

Occupation: Bookseller

Color: Blue

Beverage: Beer

Something found in a bathroom: Brush

A place: Boston

Reason for being late: Bad timing

A food: Beets

Something you shout: Boo!

It's fun - feel free to give it a try with your name!

Hey, if The Tim wants matching stripes --- well. . .

The colors ARE terrific.

The socks I'm making now are from the Kaffe Fassett striped line,, too.I'd never have even liked these colours together, but as I knit, I'm falling in love.

I was puzzled about the no comments thing, but it was early and I hadn't had any caffeine, so I thought it was user error! Happy birthday, kitties!

Carol said...

Love the socks! If they are not identical, they are awfully close...

I can't believe Garden Kitty is TEN! He doesn't look a day over four. Must be all that avoiding humanity that keeps a kitteh young....

Danette said...

The boys look fat & sassy like they should:) And the socks are awesome! Love the B words also.
And thank you & the fur patrol for all your prayers today. The hubby & the furry ones of this household appreciate it more than we can say!!!
Much love, Danette

Kaffe Fassett has his own line of sock yarn? Well, ladeeda!

Happy belated birthday guys! Looks like GK and my Mae are about a month apart - she turns 10 in March. I wonder, is 10 to kitties like turning 40 or 50 to humans? I wonder if Mae's going to go through a mid-life crisis?

Tracy said...

Hi, Bridget! And happy day belated to your fur-babies! :o) Love the socks...and your B game/meme such fun! Happy week ((HUGS))

Lisa said...

I remember the Day of the Jetsam. And now look at that tub of happy. Lucky boy. :)

Look out, GK, I'm coming to pet you!

The socks look great. I didn't even notice they weren't a perfect stripe match until you pointed it out. I guess it's because of the way the colors flow. They just work together. Very nice.

Kathleen said...

Happy belated birthdays, kittehs! Riley turns three in a couple of weeks. Meow!

Marie said...

Happy Birthday to your kitties. Did they enjoy their catnip? Our Bennis turns 10 next month and Lila and Dashiell turn 13 in August.

The socks are great. One of these days...

Lorraine said...

Bridget- That was a fun meme.

Kitties, kitties- wonderful splendiferous kitties!

Carrie K said...

Happy Belated Birthdays, Kittehs!!

Oh, Bridget. You did so badly on the B's. First of all, it should be Bryan, as the correct spelling is the way my brother spells it. Secondly beets are NOT a food. I'm not even certain they are edible. Thankfully you've redeemed yourself w/books and Bridget. :)
