Parka Meower 2 and attack of the turtles!
Apologies for the crazy blog post, I couldn’t resist. I’m in a funny mood today, probably because I got stuck behind Thomas the Tank Engine on the motorway on my way home today.
Yes, it was an actual steam engine, done up like Thomas, on a flat bed.
If I had a passenger, I’d have made them take a photo, but alas, I didn’t.
Anyhow! Parka Meower two:
Same details as the original Parka Meower, this one is for Maki, and also a photo of the two cats wearing them below.
They’re brothers – Maki and Ramen, and actually belong to Engel, but Felix has ‘acquired’ them.
Next up: Attack of the turtles!
Seems knitting turtles is rather addictive. And to answer my question from the original blog post about the turtles, I got 6 out of a full ball of wool. Well, 6 and 3/4s.
That’s the last of those for a while. I’ve currently got two projects on the needles – one for travelling and one for home, but only when Felix is in bed as it has ten balls of wool on the go at any one time.
I also think I should ban the cats from being near me as well whilst knitting it…more info on that next post, when it’ll hopefully be done.
Not much else to report really, other than Felix has been particularly adorable this past week, having made a house, at the childminders, for her pet tarantula (the other kids made them for fairies)
This is actually mine, Sakura, a Chilean Rose, Felicitys tarantula, Incy Wincy (she named it) is a Salmon Pink Bird Eating Tarantula, and although not fully grown, was too big for the house…
I sent lots of photos to the childminder who, it turns out, is terrified of spiders. Oops. Oh well, at least she knows Felicity really did make a house for her tarantula and it got used!
