cast of characters

Lani and Ann are the Weaver sisters!

Lani's household consists of Steve, the long-suffering coding genius and computer security guru; Jim, Lani's tall, red-headed and handsome son, currently finishing his second year of college; Hunter, Jasmine, Himari, Chenault, the miraculous Onyx and the even more miraculous Resk, undisputed feline rulers of the house; and Jesse, the man-hating green-cheeked conure.

Ann's household consists of Don, who is not just a computer genius but a pilot, a builder, and a damn good father; their son Steve, the marathon-running, college-bound, funniest teenager I know; and wonder dog Tater.

Other family members are Laurie, Lani's beautiful daughter who teaches at elementary levels; her handsome son Alex, aka Alexander the Great; Mary and Bo, a/k/a Mom and Dad, and Bud and Ann, Steve's patient and wonderful parents.

Have you ever wondered (posted by Lani)

what you'd get when you cross a wild-eyed kitten like this one Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
with a novice knitter who obviously doesn't weave in ends quite well enough, a damp, sheepy-y smelling wool sweater blocking on a bed, and a bedroom door that doesn't always latch when it's shut? Rest easy; you needn't wonder any longer. I can totally answer this question for you today.

You get this scene of yarn-y carnage.

Ladies (and gentlemen), I present to you the mangled remains of my Tempting sweater.

Believe it or not, it's fixable, and I do plan to fix it -- but not right now. And before you ask, Onyx is still alive, although it was touch and go for a few minutes before my sense of humor got the better of me (and I got the camera to memorialize what a softy I am when it comes to kittens).

So anyway -- Ann, I hope your big event goes well and that you don't worry too much, and Don and Tater, I hope you continue with your respective splendid recoveries, and Mom, I hope you feel better, and for all of us, I hope that this week will be better than its beginning.

Oh my goodness Lani! Good luck fixing it ... my (lack of) knitting skills are making me cringe just looking at that! Aren't kittens FUN?

Took me a month ... but I'm glad to have found you here. I hope all is well.

I'm really sorry, but I laughed loud and long! You are really a softy, I would have had to put him in time out just so I could have a few minutes to gain my composure.

I want pictures of the big fix.

*Sob* you're making me weep!

First for the Tempting that proved to be TOO tempting to a wild-eyed kitten, then I read a little further into your blog and I am weeping with jealousy over your incredibly inexpensive stash enhancement. Why oh why do all of the thrift stores around here have a staff that OVERestimates the value of the yarn (usually crappy acrylic!) that passes through their hands.
