Halloween goodies!

Some days are just better than others. Friday night, I got back from work, and a package full of Halloween goodies was waiting for me. Look at the spoilage! Two of my favorite kinds of chocolate, some orange tape with bats, stitch markers, a sheep pad and sheep soap that has a wonderful vanilla smell.


And then there is this scarf/belt/headband/all-purpose fabulous item. Such pretty colors, and the sheen is simply incredible. Because it all came in a cardless package from DeKalb, IL, I'm guessing that my benefactor is none other than CelticCoyote from the knitty board. Thank you so much for all the great stuff, it really made my day. And the chocolate... well, most of it is gone.


Yum.

Several people have asked about my cat and the consequences of his encounter with my knitting. Here he is, the sock shredder, having fun in a laundry basket. It's one of his favorite toys.


He's lucky he is cute -- and that the sock damage was hideable. With wear and stretching, it will probably even back out. I haven't tried yet, but I will as soon as the second sock is done.

Heehee - at first glance, it looks like the basket is hanging from the ceiling. I thought perhaps you put him in a little basket jail. ;)

OMG batty! When I first looked at this pic I thought, from the angle, that the basket was hanging from the ceiling like a bird cage too! Then I read on to find out about the sock and thought he was being "detained" for his indiscretions. He is too cute, and I bet, hard to stay mad at:)

I thought you'd attached some kind of pulley-system to your basket to create a kitty "time-out" zone suspended from your ceiling (thank goodness I'm not the only to think this). Cats have a way a schmoozing their way back into our good graces.
