Here she is, looking for her kittens amongst the cat mint growing in the garden! She won’t get very far finding them, seeing Tom Kitten is chasing Peter Rabbit and his sister Moppet is currently on the needles. Mittens is still just a small pile of balls of wool…
Continuing the Beatrix Potter knits, this is Tabitha Twitchit by Alan Dart, and this time I cracked. I have followed the pattern, mostly, but started to knit whatever I could in the round to reduce in the mountains of sewing these projects entail.
I also have her little pads on her paws like I did for Tom Kitten, makes her cuter!
If the weather hadn’t killed me so badly she would have been done for last week’s post, but with the heat, it’s just unpleasant holding wool and needles.
Moppet is next on the project list, then Mittens, then probably a short break in the Beatrix Potter knits but as of yet undecided!
As an aside, I joined the Stash Knit Down group on Ravelry some time ago, mostly to encourage my attempts of reducing the stash, and I’ve done a few of the challenges. They are currently doing a ‘Hot Flash Dash’ where people try and use 10,000 yards in a month (by themselves or part of a team) and I opted to be a cheerleader. There’s no way I could do that with my current commitments! I posted my first cheer though the other day:
You are all doing well!
Let’s all craft to victory!
So, turns out, cheerleaders don’t actually cheer on forums, but I got a laugh and trying to come up with some more, if anyone has any inspiration?
