Cats on Tuesday...

Because the cats have refused to do anything interesting this week I have been forced to take a photo of Pepper with a sock.  There are two points of (slight) interest to this; the first is that Pepper proves that she is just as capable of Charlie of modeling items of knitwear, the second is that this is the first sock I have ever knitted, and what is more, it almost looks sock-like. I worked so hard on it that I actually snapped a needle.  No really, I did!  A good job they have a five year guarantee.  Pepper was very impressed with my handiwork as you can see by her expression.  She actually started washing the sock just after I took this so it had to be removed from her pretty sharpish.

Dobbie the house elf - not...

Got to Gattina's Cats on Tuesday for more kitties.

Well done, you - and well done, Pepper. She thought it worth her attention if she started washing it.
(How on earth did you manage to break a knitting needle?? I have visions of you frantically knitting, sweat pouring from your brow, but still managing to keep the(stitch)tension even . . . )

Hey, not bad at first try! The sock can double as kitty scarf! :)

I think I hear Pepper saying, "Nice try, Mom, but you didn't make the scarf long enough." Seriously, it does look like a sock and I like the colors. BTW, I think I'm going to spring for a digital camera tomorrow and try for some pics of our 5 cats. Things are very exciting and entertaining around here at the moment. Of course the money might have to go for a cat carrier to get them all to the vet.

I can't decide which is prettier, the sock or Pepper. Hmmm... Pepper! It's a lovely sock, though, in a pretty colour. But breaking a needle? Were you having a temper tantrum or something? Those cats are a bad influence on you!

Jabblog & Penny: I feel I must explain further about the knitting needle in order to save myself from gaining a reputation as an angry knitter! The needles are made from California birch by a company called Brittany
http://www.brittanyneedles.com/default.html And I'm not the only one who has suffered a breakage as they offer free replacements via their website! Barbara - ooh pictures of kittens! Can't wait!

Phew! Your reputation as a gentle cat-loving, photograph-taking lady is intact!
I was using bamboo knitting pins last night. They're very bendy, but warmer than steel and have a nice gentle click. The bendiness is a bit weird, though...

We are furry impressed. Anyone who can do more than sew on a button is a handy genius to us!
