Stuff on my Cat

Of all the ridiculous things I’ve done in my time (Hello knit portrait of Bill Murray!), I’ve never submitted a photo to Stuff on my Cat.  I think I’ve found a new mission in life!   I’m envisioning the scene from ET when he uses stuffed animal camouflage to hide.

Rocky isn’t convinced yet but I think I can win him over with the power of knitting and an assist from Rebecca Danger!  Clearly, I’ve got my work cut out for me!  Today, I’ve got twice as many critters as I did yesterday…so I’m making progress!

This little swimmer is the Fractional Fish from Rebecca Danger’s 50 Yards of Fun.  Yay Stashbusting!   And three cheers for instant gratification knitting!

Once the instant gratification bug hits, there’s not much to be done except ride it out.  I think it’s going to be another hat binge.  This blog has operated for 28 days without a finished hat!?!  It’s time.

So I jumped in with both needles!  It took about two inches for reality to set in.  The yarn will absolutely win this round of yarn chicken so I quit while I was ahead.  I ripped it off the needles but couldn’t bring myself to undo it.  At least, not yet.  I really like the way the variegation is pooling & spiraling, maybe I’ll find a way to salvage it!   In the meantime, the needles are clicking away on this…

…definitely enough yarn this time!  This is some of the yarn my Mom dyed for me.  I think the ‘special occasion’ I’ve been saving it for is finally here!  I’ve got an idea.  It’s a good one.  It involves surface crochet?!?  I rely on duplicate stitch too much.  It’s time for something new!

Fingers crossed that I’ll have something noteworthy to share for FO Friday!  I’m excited about this one!

  1. 28 days with no hat? What is the world coming to? It made me realize that I too have gone much too long without hat-knitting in my life. I miss it. Can’t wait to see what your new project will be. The yarn sure is pretty!
