Burger Cat!

It has been quite a week this week. The conservatory now has a proper roof on it, meaning I had to gut it out, put everything that was in there into the living room, and measure the space and look at proper furniture…plus builders and plasterers and work and kids and something of a normal routine…

It’s been interesting. I have also had to admit that I have maybe, just a teensy bit, too much wool. Only because of the wool avalanche that occurred when moving it all. And the fact that when trying to box it up in what I thought was enough boxes…I sound up having to create a ‘naughty corner’ for packs of wool that I just ran out of space with.

But mostly the avalanche.

Aside from all that crazy, I handed my notice in this week and will be starting a new job in engineering (I am aware that as a microbiologist currently working as a radiochemist, that this is quite a jump, even for me) so if there’s radio silence for a few weeks round about then, you know why.

But enough about me, everyone is here to see knitting! I’m still plodding on with the three matching blue cabled vests, and will be for a good bit longer, but looking at miles of blue wool, and working with miles of blue wool, is kind of boring after a while. So I took a one day break and knitted:

Burger Cat! He’s actually a set of three cushion patterns called ‘Kawaii Kittens’ by Louise Walked from the book ‘Mollie Makes Knitting’. Along with a burger cat, there is a popcorn and ice cream cat. I think once I have knitted the others, I will tweak the colours and make a sushi cat. Or maybe a tako-yaki cat.

So many ideas!

But back to blue knitting for now.

So until next week, keep safe!

    A wool avalanche?! Only you!

    Also, I do love Outbreaks cushion, but now you’ll have to make one for each kitty!

    Best of luck in your new endeavour – being a Marine Biologist who ended up in chemistry and is now a civil engineer, just roll with it, your gonna love it.

      Lol, I suspect 6 at this rate as the terrors want one each as well!

      Thank you for your encouraging words about my career change – it really does make me feel better!
