Kitty Comforter or Dishcloth?

I've finished up the dishcloth for the January KAL and attempted to set up a clear shot so I could forever document my screwup (not that the cloth itself won't be a good reminder). Ms. Mia, though, she had other plans for the soft little square.

Is this for me?

Thanks mom, these purly nubs provide most excellent traction for my paws.

What's that you say, you want me to move?

Needless to say she didn't budge without much prodding. What do you think, is it a winter flower, a snowflake or a bobble-less poinsettia? It was done up on #7's, per usual, with a straightforward seed stitch edging that I managed to maul during an episode of the Dog Whisperer. It's not my fault. It featured the author of one my favorite reads of 2006, Marley & Me and I couldn't tear my eyes away. I was so engrossed by the family's newest dog woes (the new dog gleefully slaughters pet chickens) that I didn't notice my error until I had bound off and well, by then I was too lazy to bother unraveling the thing. I'm the main dish scrubber anyway and it'll be a good weekly reminder for me to always read the pattern instead of mindlessly knitting along thinking I know it all.

Hey look, it's almost a very imperfect sock!

One of the myriad reasons why sock one still isn't complete. These are more basic vanilla vegan cupcakes that I won't get to eat because I wasn't bright enough to triple the batch. The dogs have been drooling over me all evening holding out hope I'll throw them a treat but, alas, they're for a dance competition kickoff celebration and not meant for me or the canines.

I like it (and such a cute kitty!) and it took me several minute looking at the full sized picture before I could find what you were complaining about, and I knew what I was looking for!. Don't be too hard on yourself!

And those cupcakes look divine!
