Still Life with Kangaroo Body Parts


Knitting for the Missouri fair continues at a furious pace. Perhaps I should have given myself more than a week to knit a pair of kangaroos. All the body parts are done, but this left only a tiny length of yellow yarn (see picture) so no Jill head/torso can be knitted. The yarn store closed 4 minutes before I realized this. It is closed tomorrow too. The kangaroos need to go in the mail the day after that, to arrive at the fair in style on time. Oh crappers.

In other news, sorry for the sparse updates. It's been busy and hot.

One highlight was getting pretty much an entire side of the house replaced last week. Here it is before the new doors and windows went it--it looks like a dollhouse doesn't it?
Sensing a limited opportunity, Cammy espied the dupioni silk curtains while they were down, and made herself at home. She always knows the baddest/cutest thing to do!

Hope you get it all done. And, there is nothing more domestic than kitty butt on good fabric. It might be one of the requirements of a happy home!

Wow, that must have been rough to have the back wall open during our currently horrendous heat wave!

Good luck getting the kangaroos out the door! I'm sure they'll win a ribbon.

HILARIOUS---- loved the still life with kangaroo body parts. Fabulous. And, were you hot hot hot with the house opened like a zipper?

Can't wait to see the kangaroo, hope you get the yarn in time! And I love how the cat is looking at you as if she's challenging you to tell her off.
