Still Knitting

Having been away from blogging for a while, an update is needed

  • The youngest, having hit 18, is not now as helpful with writing and uploading posts
  • Basil is STILL on a diet!
  • The household has inherited another cat – Smudge

  • Basil is put outBasil
  • The Knitter is still knitting
  • The Knitter has had to master blogging

Inspired by the arrival of autumn, my latest project is these cute ‘Woodlanders’ Swiss darned onto fingerless mittens.  The mittens are knit flat, which makes adding the motifs a lot easier before sewing up the side seam.  Check them out in my shops (see sidebar).

Snowman Baby Booties!

The Knitter has focussed her attention on all things Christmassy. As a result of this a pair of woolly snowman booties have appeared. I am certain that they will make good company this Christmas, however, I am upset that The Knitter could not provide me with a cat-sized version, my paws are getting a bit nippy…IMG_6893IMG_6888IMG_6907

You can purchase your copy of the pattern on any of The Knitters websites…Happy Knitting!

A stormy day…

Lets talk about the weather. I felt particulary energetic this morning (probably due to this outrageous diet…) and I strolled out of my room only to discover gale force winds and lashes of rain to greet me. I was not impressed in the slightest. I decided that I was definately NOT venturing outside and camped underneath an umbrella by the cat flap. I am not too sure why an umbrella was strategically placed by the cat flap indoors, I think it was a hint for me to brave the dreaded outdoors and get some exercise. No thank you. I’m very happy underneath this umbrella…

My new found hiding place

Eventually, my family got sick of my dithering and I was made to go outside. They have no pity! The winds nearly blew me over and the rain ruined my perfectly brushed fur. However, I found a dry spot that I could take refuge under from the weather’s onslaught.

Finally, I was allowed to return into the warm house and a pack of treats was the first thing I saw, waiting for me. Hmm maybe my family aren’t so strict on my diet after all!

I move to investigate the treats. Now, how to open it?

A quick update on The Knitter, it seems that she is making boot toppers now. What in the world are ‘boot toppers’?!

Snow is falling…
