Tom Kitten

The next in line of my Beatrix Potter knits – the Twitchit family!

And first of all is the little mischief maker, Tom Kitten, dressed in his finest, but not best fitting, clothes!

Here he is having scrambled up the cat scratched tower, and he’s popped his coat buttons! What a naughty kitten! (I mostly followed the pattern, another Alan Dart creation, but I used the same eyes as given for Flopsy as the ones written looked a bit bulbous. I also, after Engel pestered and pestered, sewed little ‘beans’ onto his paws)

I have plans to make his sister’s Moppet and Mittens, not sure as to what state of dress they wilk be in mind, but first it’s their poor mother Tabitha that’s on the needles.

Unless I get distracted.

Or the weather picks up again and it’s too hot to think of holding wool…which I really hope isn’t the case, we all desperately need a break in the hot weather!

Short post today as other than work and some chores, we’ve been mostly having lazy or art and craft type days cause of the heat.

Wool count:

Starting total – 622

Wool used – 50 (1 since last post)
Wool bought – 7
Wool given – 5
Wool gifted – 0

    I love all the references to Tom Kittens story you’ve snuck into this blog!

    He looks wonderful, and I think the extra attention to his paws really helps make him 🙂
