My Kitty Ripple #1, which is to be donated to PetSmart for their kitties up for adoption, is halfway done.  It’s a little small, but I only bought 2 skeins and this is one of them:

There’s more green in the pictures than is showing up, for some reason, but it does have lots of reds/pinks.

I’ve also got a knitting update: my Hermione hat is coming along nicely:

And the desk that I took these pictures on is new!  I got some new furniture this week, and I’m going for the whole “shabby chic” or “cottage” style, as well as affordability and functionality.  I think I’ve done a good job, so I’ll share with you:

Here’s our new IKEA couch that I got on Craigslist.  I think I’m going to dye the off-white slipcover, because with a dog and a boyfriend it’s not going to stay off-white for very long.  This couch is replacing two old nasty couches, freeing up space and looking nicer.

This new yellow-green side table is beside the new couch, and it replaced a black plastic/metal table.

We needed storage and I had no place to do my homework except spread out on the couch, where the dog loved to walk all over it.  Now, we’ve solved those problems and added a durable and adorable desk to our living room!  I love the teal top!

I had to purchase a light yellow chair for the desk because we don’t have any chairs small enough to fit under it.  I’m hoping to crochet a cushion for the chair soon!

Tomorrow I’m going to pick up a hutch, as well, to replace our DVD stand that’s falling apart and an ugly cabinet we’ve been keeping by the door.  I’m excited about it — I’ll show you next time!

That’s all for today, but hopefully I’ll have more yarny progress soon!  Thanks for stopping by!
