Cameos?

I'm a firm believer in giving people what they want. I love to make people happy. So when Heide expressed a wish that Charlie had made a cameo appearance with the socks in my last post, I knew he and I would have to team up for my next post.

This morning, I carefully laid out the UFO that got moved up to WIP status last week so you could have a look. I artfully placed Charlie in the shot. Unfortunately, all of the pictures turned out something like this . . .

In fact, that is the best of the bunch. It's not that Charlie thinks he's too good for the blog. The problem is, simply, he loves me. He wants to be where ever I am, and kept following me around so he could rub up against my leg. (I shutter to think of the readers who might come to my blog after Googling that last phrase!!)

The only solution? Let him follow me around until he's ready for a nap, and then move the photo shoot to him.

That's more like it!! A cute shot of Charlie with my Perfect Pie Shawl!! I started this project in August of 2006. No, that's not a typo. 2006. When I put it down, I had one wedge done. I'm not quite sure why it got stuck in the UFO bin, because I've always liked it. I guess I just got distracted. In the past week I've completed two more wedges.

Three more to go, and then the edging, and this old UFO will be a FO! As for Charlie, he's done too. All the photographic excitement has tired him out and he's once again sleeping soundly by my feet. The life of a blog star is a tough one!

Oh man, he is just too cute. I just want to scoop him up and give him a good cuddle. Of course, he'd probably claw me to death afterwards, but it's the thought that counts, right?

That's what most of our pictures of Zoey look like. We try to get her to sit still, but she really wants to come over over to us. The pie shawl is going to be beautiful! I think Charlie likes it too.

Aww, so cute! Go you on the UFO!! Hehe..I'll be taking a few with me next week!

Katt said...

And how cute is your kitty to actually stay near the knitting without eating it!!

Aaawh! I have that problem with taking picturs of my dog, too - he wants to be as close to me as possible at all times.

He is such a rascal! Love the shawl, esp. the color...

That is such a handsome portrait of Charlie! I giggle to think you running around trying to get him in the picture. *you* were probably the one ready for a nap! I just bought Weekend Knitting (after coveting it for a long time), and I'm really excited about the projects in there!

I think Charlie is looking fluffier and happier now that he has a wonderful forever home!

Awwww! Cute, cute little Charlie! He's so adorable!!! You know, my Till is obviously the same - ever since we got him, he clings to me as if there's no tomorrow - wherever I go, whatever I do, there's a little (well, not so little) furry boy next to me, rubbing his head to my legs and well, doing everything that I may stumble upon him ;) They're so cute and so grateful, aren't they?
But you've been so clever, waiting till he's ready for a nap - and that pic turned out so perfect! I don't know what's more beautiful, the shawl or Charlie! Okay, it's Charlie indeed, but the shawl is so gorgeous too! ;)

That's adorable, and so sweet that he just wants to be close to you. I've had the Perfect Pie Shawl on my to-knit list for awhile now, so I'm very excited to see yours!

He is so darling--I think he secretly wants to learn how to knit!

Heide said...

Oh thank you for sharing your pictures complete with Charlie! That is so sweet that he follows you around. He must really and truly love you.
