It was the Night Before Christmas and the needles were not silent…

I’m so glad that my Christmas gift knitting is over. It was really up to the wire and I won’t be doing that again!


I can’t tell you what I knit as some friends have yet to open their presents but I did start knitting myself one on Sunday night


All I can say is that I’m making it in Cascade 220 Worsted yarn



It’s cold so Emma has been hanging out by the radiator. She doesn’t understand that now she’s four she’s a lot bigger than she was as a kitten and can’t drape herself across it as she used to. She’s convinced that she’s still exactly the right size for it. I’ve tried getting her to use one of those radiator hanging beds but she insists that she hates them and they’re not the same as her draping. So there.

Merry Xmas, everyone.

New Blog – In progress

Not a great amount to blog this week. The Lucky Cat earrings aren’t yet finished.



That’s them residing inside one of my jewellery finding drawers. I’ve capped them with little silver beads and am considering adding a clear crystal on top before I attach them to the ear hooks.

Knittingwise I’ve got a few more rows on She’s Electric done this week. I still want to finish it before the end of the month so that I can brace myself for when the madness that is Nanowrimo begins.

To make up for the lack of crafty pix here’s a cute picture of Emma. I don’t get to take many photos of her since she’s usually so busy but here she is paused on the bed after a tummy tickle. 🙂



New Blog – Secret Hat and Sad Goodbyes

Remember my secret knitting? Well, it has transformed into this


It’s the cat version of the Unbelievably Simple Baby Hat pattern by Laurene Hildebrandt

Here’s a better photo of it.


I showed it to colleagues at work who thought it looked like Hello Kitty 🙂 This was a present for my friend Amy. Although it’s obviously not directly for Amy herself, I made Meret for Amy and she’s very pleased with it. It looks perfect on her  🙂

I’ve still not cast on for the Camden Cap but I am finishing off She’s Electric which has been percolating for a while 🙂

Andy rang me me in the week with some sad news. Our old black cat Sabre, who still lived with Andy, had had to be put down. Sabey was very old and hadn’t been well for a while.

Sabey, you’ll be much missed.

Totoro Waits for the Cat Bus…

but finds that it’s strangely uncooperative…


I don't care what that is, I'm still ignoring that radiator shelf you bought me...


No, he still can’t get a lift anywhere beyond this chair…

Yeah, I'm still ignoring it.


If you’re mystified as to whom Totoro is then check out this trailer…
