Knitting Stash: an app for Android

I've been doing more programming than knitting lately. What have I been working on? Why a knitting app, of course. It is for android phones. It has sections for keeping track of your projects, your knitting needles and crochet hooks, and also a section for row counters. Here are some screenshots:

Here's the QR code to download the app from the Android Market if that's how you roll:

I'm knitting another hybrid sweater, this one for Steven. I named it the Fog of Existence. That sounds like a sweater Ingmar Bergman might've worn.

My friend Zach from Fancy Tiger, gave me two catnip hearts, unfortunately we have three cats so I had to make a few more. They are simple: cut out two hearts from a sheet of wool felt or quilting fabric, sew them together except for a small hole, stuff them with catnip (I used a funnel), sew the hole closed. If you have a pinking shears, cut along the border for a fancy look! Bossy demands the Fancy.

Here's a couple of pictures of Bossy's reaction. (the other two cats had similar reactions.
