Knitting for Erin


I’ve had a request from Erin to knit her a cat, a lovely plump kitty about a foot tall. She chose this Hartlam yarn called Pangea, the colour variances in it are just divine. He is going to be a sweet fella when he’s finished and his pattern will be available soon:) He’s going to be one of those cats that have to be carried around and will be the perfect size to hold under one’s arm.

Our little kitty Delilah, was spayed last week and we noticed a lump under her stitches this morning. I took her to the vet and she was taken into surgery straight away, her fat layer had pushed through and was making the large lump. We are all awaiting 3 pm when we can fetch our special girl…

Jen is away at a cooking practical for 3 days for her consumer studies for school, I can’t wait to see what she makes.

Joining with Ginny today

Have a wonderful day sweet friends.

      Thank you Elizabeth, I have Delilah here with me now, she is still so groggy and is sleeping on my lap.

    I love that yarn Linda, it will make a great cat.

    I do hope Delilah heals quickly, our pets really are part of the family aren’t they.

    A cooking practical? Can you share more? My daughter is a Culinary Arts teacher from Johnson & Wales so she judges and teaches all things foodie.

      Oh, Tracey! Who is your daughter? My daughter Erica Bunker graduated from J&W in 2004 and we both LOVE to cook! We love kitties too, Linda; praying that Delilah gets well soon!

    Thanks Tracey:)
    One of Jenna’s grade 10 subjects is Consumer Studies, it involves, sewing, cooking, healthy eating, economics and marketing. This 3 day course is a cooking practical where they are learning various cooking techniques and how to prepare simple as well as ornate dishes and will do a practical exam tomorrow. I can’t wait to hear how her first day went, she is still travelling back from Pretoria which is over an hours drive one way. Our neighbour is also homeschooling and her daughter is also taking this subject. They very kindly offered to drive Jen because Richard is in France at the moment.

    I was so concerned when I read the first part of the message about your kitty. I recently went into panic mode when our all-black cat Lopez came back from his regular check-up from his vet with a letter saying there seemed to be an abnormality with his heart beat and we were to take him to a cat cardiologist. Diagnosis was that there was an abnormality but not serious. However, he has to be rechecked in 6 months. As you can imagine Richard and I were relieved. By the way, cat cardiologists’ charges are similar to human cardiologists’ but size-adjusted.

    I will love to see the blue and white kitty when it is done. The yarn is lovely.

    you brighten my day. I love the yarn and look forward to the kitty pattern. I hope to knit the kitty pattern that you share a few weeks back. I have a little 2 year old granddaughter and she is so in love with kitties. She carried two of mine home with her today (two toy kitties) I lost my cat of 17 years and it is so differant without him.
    I wish there was more time in the day to knit. I care for my granddaughter 3 days a week and right now where I live it is summer so I take advantage of being outdoors as much as I can. The garden needs attention and my g-daughter loves to go on long walks. What a blessing.
    I do hope you kitty heals well and quickly.

    Can’t wait to see the finished cat! My daughter’s beloved cat died last week, it’ll be perfect to make her one!

    P.S. Did you ever find onegirlsrant on YouTube? She has several, “The Hazards of Backyard Hens” is the one I told you about. SO funny!

    Ah – a groggy cat is such a fine thing – heavy and warm and pliable – totally at rest. I am never totally at rest. I’d love to be limp for a bit. Even if it meant a bit of discomfort first – a chance to be heavy as a safe cat. The yarn is lovely. And I would like a bite of what she cooks, please.
