The Hexipuff and the Pee
By dinagay on April 11, 2012
If you were looking forward to a fairy tale, you will not encounter such a thing in this post. It would be safe to say that "The Hexipuff and the Pee" could not be further in story from "The Princess and the Pea".
Having finished all the slippers I care to make and lacking the desire to start frogging things in "the pile," hexipuffs returned to my knitting fingers. Yesterday, 3 more made it to the completed mound. Digging around in my stash for unwanted sock yarn, I found several mini-skeins of lace weight handspun that I did up with some crap roving. There are 6 colors which can be broken down into 3 subsets of coordinating colors to be held double thus creating a close to fingering weight.
On the way to work this morning, the first one got whipped up...only needs to have the ends tucked away. It looks as if I may be able to get 2 puffs from each color subset.
That covers the Hexipuff portion of this tale, and now for the Pee.
My frustration with certain feline residents' tendencies toward inappropriate incontinence has been documented...as well as my apparent acrimonious accusations. SOMEONE is at it again. Ya know how they make "nanny cams"? Well, I think it is time for me to look for a "Kitty Cat Crapper Camera". Upon entering the laundry room this morning, I was greeted by a nice big wet spot on the rug that had just been put back in place last night.
THE spot...minus the rug (which was promptly thrown in the washer)...
This rug is by the door that they use to exit the laundry room (keep the rug inside the room to catch stray litter bits)...
Of course, these three wished to assure me that it was NOT them and they were most assuredly treat-worthy.
The only thing I can do at this point is to use a quote my Mother would use when frustrated..."well, piss on it!"
