I am crazy Knitting Machine, or am I?

Welcome Everyone,
this has been such a stressful week and I am happy it's over and things start to look better. Monday my lovely Sedona (my torti cat) squad down right in front of me and peed on her bed a couple drops. We knew right then and there something was wrong. We were unable to take her to the vet till Friday, for many reasons. However, as the week progressed things got worst, meaning she peed on both her beds, our bed, and the closet. Also towards the end of the week she pretty much only peed blood. The vet confirmed she has a Urinary Tract Infection and crystals in her urine. She now is on (liquid) medication for 3 weeks. The worst part is it totally is our fault, we were trying to safe money and changed their cat food. Well we learned with the vet bill and switched back to their good food. Since the first day of medication she has been much better, which makes me very happy. On a happy note The Loopy Ewe revealed 3 different colorways for the Camp Loopy prize yarn. Of course I didn't just pick my prize yarn and went along my way, but I will show those goodies hopefully next week.

Works in Progress - WIP's
First up is my Evenstar, knit out of custom dyed Unique Sheep on the Ling base, with size US 3 (3.25mm) Hiya Hiya Sharp needles. I am half way done with the 2nd chart, woohoo, still a ways a very long ways to go. I tried getting a good picture, but yea that's not happening. It will look like I have no progress, since the shawl actually only increases after each chart.
I been working a lot on a secret holiday knitting project.

Finished Objects - FO's
None :(

Next On the Needles
This is were the title is coming from. The Loopy 4th quarter challenge is to knit something with the yarn held double, I will knit The Cinch.
Then, I have a couple holiday knitting projects coming up. 
Also my sister is 3 months pregnant, as soon as we find out the sex of the baby, baby knitting is getting started. 
Meanwhile I have to finish my wedding shawl and knit my bouquet.

I finished the August 2012 into the whirled Fiber club. It's Polwarth, I got about 264 yards (my most yardage yet) a heavy fingering to a light sport weight. The picture is before I soaked it and thwacked it. Actually today I washed that one and my last handspun from into the whirled that I completely forgot to wash. The first picture is the yarn and the second is the itty bitty I had left over on my bobbin, I navo plyed it into a mini skein, I had 2 yards.
I received the September into the whirled club shipment. It's Superwash BFL (Bluefaced Leicester) in the Aurora Borealis colorway. It's very pretty, green, aqua, dark purple, and black. First I will show the inspiration picture and second the fiber. 

That's it for this week. I hope Sedona will get better this week. Also I should get my Loopy package this week, with lots of goodies. 
Happy Knitting,
