Yarn Along: A Cat in a Hat

 I am joining along with Ginny from Small Things today for the Yarn Along. Please follow the link to join along.

I went a little crazy last week with cabin fever and decided I had to knit my cat Milo a "Raspberry Beret". He was less than impressed...





 His sister Lola was a much calmer model.

Click this and then go back up and look at the photos again, it's even better with a soundtrack ;)

I also knit Nalah a pair of legwarmers during our drive down to the Kite Festival.


I opened my mail to a fun surprise last week, Storey Pulishing sent me a copy of Knit Christmas Stockings, edited by Gwen W.Steege. I have always wanted to learn to knit designs in multiple colors and a Christmas stocking would be a perfect first project for that. There are some wonderful patterns an whimsical charts. I wish I had more time to knit these days, if I did I would freak out and try to knit stockings for all of my kids this year in a design with their names and dancing animals in a rainbow of colors. Yeah, I will save that for another year. 
Right now I am still knitting toddler fingerless gloves to sell over the holidays, everything else is on hold for a bit. I am dreaming of knitting a red sweater for myself...

Those cat hats are sooooo cute! I love the leg warmers.

I always long to knit when I see these yarn along postings. Got to get back at it.
