Inspiration is found with ripple and chevron patterns. So I bought some yarn (the first in a long time) and cast on this long-admired zig-zag blanket. I'm zooming through the project but I'm not sure of the color blocking yet so there are no pictures for the blog. I will knit more rows before I photograph as the colors are laid out in a really random design and I'm not sure a photo of it at this point will give a good impression. I'm really hoping that the more I knit, the more pleasing it will be to the eye.
Lucky for me, Mr. Grumpbump has an affinity for plants because I'm terrible at keeping those things alive. As a result, we have cultivated a mini-jungle on our pool patio.

Kitten update. Monkey is over 4 months old now. She's a spaz and so entertaining. Macy likes her (to a point) and Delilah hates her (completely). I will have to post some videos of her harassment of Delilah and her playing with Mace.
