Moe isn't a knitter's cat

I've come to the conclusion that Moe needs to find his forever home really, really fast before I do something .... like duct tape his mouth shut when he's not eatting. Sounds a bit extreme but I'm about at the end of my rope. We're up to 4 ruined double points and 2 ruined circular needle. I wouldn't mind except he's now knocking over things to get to the needles. Obviously he's not a knitter's cat.
Moe says: Maybe I'll just hang out a little out of reach for a while. Is it my fault that those bamboo sticks are tasty?
In spite of the fact that I'm running out of needles I've been finishing up on some socks that were languishing in the bottom of the knitting bag.
And casting on more.
Of course I'm drowning my sorrows in my blog contest prize from leaving a comment on Julie's blog. She's got a cute little granddaughter who is featured on her blog all the time. Isn't that what grams are supose to do?
Hubby and I went on a little vacation to Rhode Island last week. I love Rhode Island. We went to the Nordic Lodge for dinner and ate lobsters and king crab legs until we waddled out the door.

We went to the Roger Williams Zoo in Providence. Nice little zoo where you can actually see the animals. We also went on the Providence River Walk. Really nice way to see the city while strolling along. The have fire holders in the water which they fill with wood and light every so often. It must look really nice.

Made sure I was home in time to spend Sunday with Dad. We've got a new routine since he really can't get out much. I go over and bring along a movie that I know he'll like. Last week it was Casino (I told my mom that I was paying dad a quarter every time they said fuck and that I was up to $4,000 before the movie was half over). This week I brought along Master and Commander. He's kind of in and out of it because of some heavy duty pain medication but at least he's not in discomfort.

Gotta go find some more double points and finish some knitting. W and N need new socks for starting school and I have to finish up a couple pair for A for her birthday.

Hmmmm....sounds like you need to order some metal Knit Picks DPNs!!! He sure is a cutie pie though!

Oh maybe he'll grow into a knitter's cat. he's so precious! Glad you had fun in NH. The routine you have with your dad sounds wonderful!

Guess it might be time to keep some a water mister handy. Or swap needles for something less tasty. He might grow out of it.

Moe must be Mr. Bettis' cat counterpart:) He looks so innocent, though.

Glad you glad got away for a weekend and I'm envious of your seafood dinner.......yum!

It sounds like a nice weekend away. I would like some lobster, but I am the only one in my family that likes seafood :(

I would suggest giving the kitty a few of the ruined dpns but I am sure they are not good for the GI tract. The little stinker, does he eat the wool too or just the needles?

Happy to hear your dad is able to be comfortable and that you are able to spend this time with him.

Best of luck in finishing the socks that were hiding in the knitting bag. I hope you have found more needles.

Moe is too cute to do that kind of damage! Maybe you should switch to metl needles while he is in the house. If course he might break a few teeth at this rate!

Thanks so much for the chuckles. And congratulations on all the "finished" knitting. I'm sure that soon enough there will be another stack of started knits you will need to finish off down the road. Moe might not fit well into a knitter's home right now, but maybe one day. And just think, he will have gained his formal training from one of the best.......yourself, of course. :)
