Animals Galore

So could you tell that school started? I've been reluctantly walking through campus for the past few weeks, glaring at girls on cell phones having conversations such as, "I'm going to eat, and then I'm going tanning. I'm so pale, daddy!" We won't even get into how wrong such conversations are in so many ways. Also, what's up with this leggings + miniskirt trend? I've always been forthright in my disgust of 80s pop culture, and I am strongly concerned with this resurgence. (So no, not everyone in their 20s "Loves the 80s." I realize this is hard for some people to understand, but those clothes were ugly and the music was annoying. Face it.)

Instead of working on my thesis I've been perched on my new couch (!) using up some yarn. I made a rabbit for 3-week old Lucas, who was born while I was in New Mexico.

And because I couldn't let my kitty, Kiska (special thanks to Dove for naming her!) think I wasn't paying attention to her, I'm sending her a toy she can destroy almost immediately.

And because I have to be like every other knit blogger and include pictures of my cat, here she is. (Oh, and I fully acknowledge this cat does not live in the same time zone as me, nor have I actually met her, but she'll be my cat eventually. So it still counts.)

(Rabbit: Pattern from Last Minute Knitted Gifts, Lion Brand Microspun, size 5 dpns. Mouse: Pattern from Stitch 'N Bitch Nation, ugly yarn that might be mohair, doubled on size 4 straights.)

*beams* I named a kitty! Go me!

What a cute little bunny. I'm gonna have to make one...

I hear you on the cellphone fusttration. Every day while riding the train, I get to hear how wasted someone got the night before and similarly stimulating discussions. And leggings and miniskirts are everywhere are other awful trends.

Darn.. I was hoping the leggings thing wouldn't come true. Like a bad dream. They kept warning us about it alll summer... still isn't here in the Midwest though. :) That makes me super happy.
