Kitty!

Today I:
  • had a soy latte and a bit of a stale croissant for breakfast
  • started reworking the wristwarmers
  • am feeling pretty smug

I carved this out a bar of Ivory soap this afternoon with a Swiss army knife. It's a bit crude - Ivory soap is really soft, so it's difficult to develop details - but I think the general shape came out OK. Practice, practice!

I'm considering taking it to the next level and buying a bit of soapstone.

Last night, I:

  • had dinner at The Middle East in Cambridge
  • watched a couple DVDs while Joe was out seeing avant guard violin music
  • finished the thumb gusset on the wrist warmers, only to rip it out this afternoon

Your kitty looks amazing! I think you definitely should keep carving, go buy some soapstone immediately :)!
