Knitting – a lot. Apres Surf Hoodie. Baby Sweater. Ravelympic skirt that has been back-burnered because 397 stitches a row is torture. A scarf. A pair of baby booties. A sock.

*headbutt* That’s Sam, the cat I took care of for a week, during which I introduced him to Battlestar Galactica, my new obsession, and he introduced me to working on two hours of sleep.

Thankfully, his owners just picked him up, so I’m going to go watch another disc of BSG and knit – without a cat on my lap!
