Chibi Ninja

The Halloween curse strikes again! I get sick every year around this time. I am finally on antibiotics and have hopes of recovering soon. Needless to say, I have been slightly out of my mind for several days so this post took a little longer than planned to get up.
When my niece and nephew started taking karate I had hopes that they would grow up to have my dream job, NINJA!

My Cat's Favorite Mouse

Weezer's favorite toys have always been those cheapy half moon mice from the pet store. He kills them easily so I made him some that could take the abuse.
Do kitties love toys? 
Do kitties like to hide toys? 
Are you ever going to find that toy that he/she batted under the fridge? 
Probably not.

Goodbye my dearest friend

A little of my heart has died. My best friend in the whole world passed away tonight. Mercury was the most amazing cat I ever knew. He was my partner in crime and was always up for going on a midnight trip to the drive-thru to get breakfast. He loved chocolate, pizza, and even would steal steamed broccoli off our dinner plates.

Kitten Mitts

If you have come from Crochet Dynamite, welcome!
If you haven't, welcome!

Jaime at Crochet Dynamite did a wonderful post about NyanPon's Knits and Crochet. Check it out here

Adding a more glamorous spin to paw print mitts.
These mitts whip in in several hours, which makes them great for a last minute party.

Florida Shrug

When knitting or crocheting, garments are not the first thing that come to mind for me. I have a feeling it is because in Florida we really don't have seasons. It's October now and still in the 90s when it isn't raining. I wanted a little touch of fall without over heating so I designed this feminine little shrug.
and from the back.
The ribbed bands help with fit.
I made it out of a yarn with a touch of wool to give it a little warmth.
But more importantly, it has iridescent sparkle!

While working on a new food item it magically turned into something else.
That something else is something I have been wanting to do for a while now so it was a pleasant surprise. 
Takoyaki! A lovely little ball of fried octopus goodness. This is Japanese street food at it's best.
