The Floor is SO out of here!

It's been a hot weekend. We stayed indoors most of the weekend and the boys decided to do very cat-like things. Bert practised his circus act. He doesn't quite have the double flip worked out but he's getting there.
Chief found napping a good activity. He also found a wonderful box to cuddle into to. One problem - the box is my "finished knit but not blocked items" box. Under him is 3 pair of socks, 2 shawls, 5 blocks to send to the Greensburg project and a few other items I can't remember. Hope the Greensburg people like cat hair!

Mystery Shawl 3

I did get the next clue of the MS3 shawl Saturday morning because Friday was busy. Saturday afternoon before I headed out to meet friends and a little time this morning were spent knitting the next part. Now - I wait till next Friday to continue this project. By the way - did you hear - we "broke" Yahoo Friday morning with everyone trying to download the next clue.;_ylt=Ap0el

Friday my new floor arrived. It has to live in the house for a couple days to get used to the climate but - Monday I will no longer need to look at the old floor. It's been around for many years. I remember the floor from high school (i.e. - early 70s) The seams were not done right and within a year the one seam started popping up. Then a little later the other seam. Dad would re-glue it every of often but it was never great. Well, I decided one of the first things I would do when I bought the house was REPLACE THE FLOOR! You'll just have to wait until Monday night to see what the new one looks like. (It's SOOOOO pretty I can hardly wait!)

Also Friday some of us got together at a friends house to watch "The Last King of Scotland". None of us had gotten around to that one and I just got it from Netflix so - instant movie party. That lead into the Saturday night supper and movie party because the other movie I got this weekend was "The Good Shepherd". We all agree Last King was excellent and Good Shepherd was good but long and at time confusing. Everyone also said the raspberry muffins I made for Friday night were good. Hey- I had raspberries sitting in the garden and 1 hour before I had to get over to their house - what else do you do but run out, pick berries and make muffins.

Your shawl is coming along beautifully. I thought your headline was referring to the cats antics, at first!
