New Cats and New FOs

We went to look at some rescue cats today and found one that we hope can join our feline family. We took photos of him but I don’t want to reveal anything here just in case we don’t get him. You see the animal organisation has to do a home check before we can have him and I don’t want to tempt fate. I do hope that we pass and get to take him home though. He is a wonderful cat. The home check is on Wednesday.

Meanwhile I’ve been suffering from a horrible cold since Thursday. It came on just before I went to a Stitch & Bitch meeting. Thursday and Friday were hard and while my nose has stopped streaming so much, I have an irritating cough. I hate coughs, they usually take a few weeks to shift. 🙁

I’ve still been knitting of course and finished the Stitch Diva Page Boy Hat.


I stuffed it with bubble wrap for the photo and need to give the felted brim a press with the steam iron to flatten it down. It’s made from Lorna’s Laces Bullfrogs and Butterflies in Bitter Sweet. I used two strands of yarn. The pattern calls for 70 yards of yarn, I think, and each skein of LLBB has 190 yards. I’m hoping to get a scarf out of what’s left. Not sure yet which pattern I’ll use.

I’ll be wearing this with my new black faux Persian lamb coat.


  1. Super hat! Fingers crossed for the kitty! I think I have your cold, anth has been ill all weekend and now I am getting the sniffles and feel a bit crap. Never mind, Speak soon.
