Ok, So I missed YPFriday…

But I have a really really good excuse! I was buying yarn!!! Knit Happens is having a LEAP YEAR SALE!!! And boy, I did some damage! But if you look at what I SAVED…

I got sweater quantities of Debbie Bliss Astrakhan, Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk, Laines du Nord Cashsilk, Patagonia Nature Cotton and Angora Cotton. Then there are the skeins of Artyarns Ultramerino, Koigu Kersti, Manos, Alchemy Lone Star, Claudia Handpaint Fingering, Artyarns Regal Silk and a single skein of DB Soho. And 9 pattern books.

I can't buy ANY MORE YARN! EVER!


Aside from the yarn buying, we had a rather stressful week. Diesel was not acting himself over the weekend last weekend. Through Monday. He wouldn't move from his position in the chair in my office, where he lay upside down and scraggley looking. When we realized that he hadn't asked to go outside - or used the litterbox in two days, we got a little worried. We called the vet Monday evening and tried to get him in. They said they were backed up and could we bring him in Tuesday morning. Agreed. Then I get a call from the vet, who told me I should really get him to the emergency vet if he had not peed in two days. Again I agreed. Went to collect him and he was coming out of the litterbox! He peed! Another call to the vet, now closed, so I had to page the vet on call. She called back and agreed with me - to bring him in Tuesday morning again.

$385 later - his white cell count is slightly elevated, his bladder was large, but not blocked and liver enzymes a little high. All pointing to maybe a urinary tract infection - maybe. We all think he was injured Saturday night either being "rolled" by a car, or something that beat him up a little with no visible wounds and he was really sore for a few days.

He seems to be back to his old self now. Climbing in laps and beating up his stuffed toys at night.

Oh, and Curly Mo Light has a sleeve! And is growing a second one!

Wow, look at that gorgeousness! I guess that's why it's a leap year sale: no more yarn shopping for the next 4 years. But it was so worth it!

So glad your cuddlebuddy seems to be doing better.

Thank you for all your purchasing at KH. Now I don't feel so bad about not going myself :-)
