So I’m really going eleven steps backwards. Which is why there has been no blogging, because I am getting nothing done.
I did whip up a hat for my mum’s birthday:
(here on Ravelry)
and she likes it quite a bit. It matches the mini clap I made out of malabrigo ages ago, which I never wear, so I gave that to her as well.
But what’s really causing me agony is my sweater jacket.
I have ripped and reknitted this thing so many times by now. And I still think I may need to frog the whole thing and start again. Or maybe cast on for something new while I try to figure out what the hell I’m doing.
Whatever, you’re here for the Caturday, right? 😉 Well, we have a new member of the family, and it looks like she’s sticking around for a while.
This pretty little kitty (who is actually huge–she should weigh 15-20 pounds once we get her up to a normal weight) is technically still our foster kitty, but my mum has fallen in love with her, and we may not be able to give her up again. She doesn’t have a name at the moment, although it seems everyone has an idea: mum likes Inertia, dad likes Velocity. I’m all for calling her Velociraptor. All suggestions welcome.
