I finally love a sweater!

I finally made a sweater that I love to pieces! It is the Waterford Cardigan (free on Ravelry) from Lion Brand. You are supposed to use super chunky yarn, but I decided to make it with bulky yarn, but make a size medium instead of small. I also made the arms a size small so they wouldn't hang too much. Voila! wonderful knit! I used Knit Picks WOTA chunky in navy, about 5 balls, but not sure really because it was from a frogged sweater. It just needs a few buttons and she's done! I already have the yarn out for the next one!

The cats are doing fine. Thanks Yarncharmer for asking! Mulder still doesn't like Dexter, but Dexter really doesn't care. Dex is finally learning to just stay away from Mulder. The only time this is a problem is feeding time. Otherwise Itchy and Dex play and fight and sleep and lick each other and it's incredibly cute and funny. Dex also likes to come in and eat my hair while I'm sleeping. That isn't so cute or funny. One time he attacked my entire head with all 4 ginormous paws. That sucked. I don't know where his paws came from, but they are clearly not of the cat variety. More lion variety. HUGE. Thank goodness his previous owners taught him to not use his claws, that would suck more.

Just waiting on some cooler weather to wear my sweater now!
