Cat and cat

We went to Richard Thompson's concert at the Narrows last Friday (thanks again, J and D!). It was great! In fact, I spent the entire time (except for intermission) NOT KNITTING, because I was so busy watching his guitar-playing while simultaneously trying to absorb the harmonies and lyrics.

The Narrows has resident artists, and several of their studios were open during the breaks. Inevitably the knitting radar led me to this:

And check this out--the cat stitch marker is a mirror image of the zipper pull on my knitting bag!

I would ask what the chances are of that, but for all I know this cat shape is the most common one around for both zipper pulls and bead-pendant-stitch-marker materials.

The blanket has 1.5 new blocks.

The Artfibers tank top has also grown. Granted, it's been a while since I posted about it.

As for the Mock Croc sock...

It's slowly getting there, but I find myself reluctant to work on it and I can't figure out why.

Wow! You are getting a lot of knitting done. I like your new stitch markers too. :)

I would guess that there are enough cat images and symbols out there that it's at least a moderate coincidence that you found a match. Certainly a good enough one to justify the purpose!

Are you not working on the mock croc socks because you think in the end you'll have too-small socks, and you don't want to have to face up to the possibility of frogging?
