In my role as Guest Blogger for Periodic Mumbling, I think it is important to try to stay within the themes that have already been established. Reading through the blog, it seems that these themes are: knitting, cats, craftiness, and flowers. I’m going to have to stick with the subject of cats due to my lack of experience with any of the other themes. In this post, I will outline a fun, cat-based project that you can work on while your spouse is away.

How to Rename Your Cats

This simple project requires only perserverence and time. Don’t even try it if you have less than two weeks available. Here is how it is done. Simply refer to your cats with their new names for at least two weeks. Make sure you don’t slip and use an original name; this will result in a cat that answers to the old AND the new name, thus chaos will ensue. Meet our newly named cats:

Salt

Salt

Pepa

Pepa

You can use these names as well. If you have three cats, consider naming the third Spinderella, then you’ll have the entire 80’s/90’s hip-hop supergroup Salt-N-Pepa. Other potential new names: Ludacris, Eminem (could be for one or two cats), Grand Master Flash and the Furious Five (six cats only!), and Roland. Be careful not to “Push-It” too far.

Tomorrow I leave for a two week trip to Massachusetts, so I’ve been spending all of my free time with my husband or furiously knitting, as I won’t have much contact either of them during my trip. I have a major backlog of complete knitting projects to blog about, but haven’t had the time to actually blog about them. It’s a bummer because I have a number of projects from the last couple cycles of project spectrum that I never got around to blogging about, like my blue Samus sweater and the completed Cecilia sweater.

I thought I’d briefly share some socks that I completed for Evan a couple of weeks ago. They fit into last month’s project spectrum as they have a great deal of both pink and green. I knit these plain vanilla socks using Schaefer Anne.

I promise that when I come back to share more completed projects and perhaps some pictures of Massachusetts.

In the interim, Evan has agreed to do some guest blogging here. I have no idea what topics he may cover. His interests range from parasites to politics and from cooking to robots. He does know how to knit, but I can pretty much guarantee that his posts will not be knitting related.
