OK, lame title, I know, but I'm all out of inspiration for this one. Magic was never my forte.
So, here's my progress on the Hello Killy Illusion Scarf for Alice:
Now you see it:
Now you don't:
Sort of. I'm not wild about it, I think poor kitty looks a bit stretched, but it's ok. I know she'll love it IF I get it finished for tomorrow. Hmm. It's getting tight now. I've two kitties and one flower done, two kitties to go.
I must say, illusion knitting is much easier than it looks, I'd certainly be tempted to give it another go some other time perhaps with better charts. But this was a great introduction to it.
In other news, poor Alice has had a bad birthday so far. She decided to have her birthday yesterday instead of Monday as she's in school and couldn't stay up late etc. So, we did presents yesterday afternoon & went to the local Indian for dinner last night.
While there, in the middle of the starter she went to the bathroom complaining that her wobby tooth was hurting her. I don't know what made me leave my food and follow her in, call it Mammys instinct I guess, but the poor mite was crying as it was bleeding & sore. In fact it was hanging off. I had a tissue and was having a look at it when it came out in my hand, and she fainted dead away in the bathroom stall. Just dropped like a sack of potatoes. I got an awful fright, she's never fainted before, nor is she afraid of the sight of blood.
I don't know how I did it but I managed to catch her. She took a good few minutes to come to and was absolutely white. Her lips were almost see through.
Anyway, to cut a long story short, the restaurant was abandoned. I had to carry her to the car. I'd say it was a good hour before she was back to herself, and even at that she was just cuddled into me.
So, not much of a birthday dinner! I'll have to make it up to her tomorrow. Hopefully if I get the scarf finished that will cheer her up. I've also got a lovely dinner planned. Poor Alice.
Anyway, I'd better get back to the knitting if I'm to get it finished!
