Tracey’s having a “Muggle Challenge” – leave her a comment with the most mind blowing question someone has asked about your knitting and you could win a snarky coffee mug and some yarn. For my non-knitting readers, yes, knitters often refer to non-knitters as muggles – blame the Yarn Harlot for that one. Maybe you can play along in Tracey’s contest and include a question you’d love to ask a knitter to get said knitter’s goat? 😉
Kristi’s looking for a name for her new fingerless mitt pattern – if your suggestion is selected, you will get a free copy of the pattern!
Some of you may remember Chaos’ beloved SRM (Sparkly Red Mouse), lost when it ricocheted off Chaos’ paw during a game of fetch last spring. Guess what I found last week?!
I know, I know, it’s not much to look at, but you should’ve seen Chaos cavorting like a kitten!*
Alas, Chaos was wrong – shortly after this picture was taken, SRM vanished again. Hopefully just under the stove this time…
*Please ignore the sand on the carpet. Welcome to winter in Minnesota.

Sand on the carpet? Dude… You should see my place! I keep using the excuse “but the guys are afraid of the vaccuum” as an excuse to *not* pass the thing around. It’s wearing thin.
I have so much stuff under my fridge and stove, it’s become their new toy box!
Oh my….Re-united oh so briefly. ‘Tis a tragic tale.
yay for the return of SRM,
quickly hidden before May wants to play!
Actually, I think it would be great fun to have the muggles weigh in on this. Looking at it from their p.o.v., I being the snarky butt I am might ask a dumb question, just TO BE a snarky butt.
Oh Chaos, you need a bigger SRM, one that will not easily lodge himself under small crevices.
Thanks for the postage Chris!
Oh yes, Chaos, did you look under Mae? As a little sis myself, we find any way we can to get our digs in when we can.
Absence diminishes commonplace passions but ignites great ones!
Aww, poor Chaos! You really need to get more of those instead of torturing the poor kitty.
Wow that is one quickly disappearing mousie! Either Chaos is banking it in the strangest of places or it knows all the good hiding places 😉 My guess would be on top of a cupboard?
YAY for SRM!!!!
Maybe May’s the culprit for stealing srm, she’s prob hiding in the corner somewhere with srm, one paw over her mouth snickering away 🙂
Meeee-ow! Found!! Your SRM looks divine, Chaos, I hope you find it again really soon…
Chaos looks overjoyed! He probably hid SRM.
Oh, SRM. Dumped Chaos for another but came back when that one didn’t work out. In the middle of the night SRM realized it was a mistake and is gone with the wind again, off to break someone else’s heart…
This is it, the moment I’ve been waiting for…the day you blogged about finding the SRM.
Poor Chaos. But tis better to have loved and lost and all that jazz.
this post title …isn’t this a led zeppelin song? if not it should be.
Chris- I wanted to tell you yesterday that I liked your earwarmer thingie- doesn’t mess up your ‘do.
A mousie is as a mousie does.
(What does that mean?)
Finbar used to have this little tennis ball that he just loved to play with, but it would inevitably bounce under the book case or the couch and then he’d be without it for a while again.
That’s a mouse?! I thought it was a leftover holiday decoration. 🙂
Where do those cat toys go? I find laugh so hard when I find collection hiding somewhere.
Isis says she took it, which I wouldn’t doubt. She tends to vanish through the nether, to places unknown.
If you see a slinky tortie skulking about, send her home. She knows how .. she usues stargates. I swear.
Aw! Cute! and that reminds me to clear out under my stove!
What did Mayhem think of the SRM?
I use the “Wednesday is my vacuuming day” excuse in my pictures. And those lost toys, know them well. We have 3 of the kitty wantons. I rarely see more than one at a time. This weekend all 3 showed up for a while.
Oh, so lovely, Chaos! I’m glad you found SRM again. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, then out of sight, out of mind.
Poor Chaos – not so easy come, very easy go…………
SRM returns 🙂 So did Mayhem get a look in or did Chaos carefully bat it out of the way before she could get her paws on it?
Sand? You should see my floors. At least Chaos had SRM for a few moments. Maybe cat toys travel in time and space with the lost socks. 🙂
I love watching old(er) cats suddenly become kitten-like again! But poor Chaos — SRM is missing again!
He looks so happy!! I hope the story will have a happy ending….
I think SRM has a little hidey hole somewhere. I think he likes making an appearance now and then just to keep Chaos honest.
Haha, glad he got to play with SRM for a while. 🙂 Munchkin’s current playmate has disappeared too…
Every few weeks, Purple Non-Sparkly Mouse emerges from hiding, and Perry, too, starts acting like a little kitten instead of the 20 pound slob he’s become. Glad you found the mouse!
