WIP Weds: Poor Jack and Small favours

Good morning all!

Poor Jack is now 9 months old, and is on an overnight visit to the vets to be remodeled. He will return this morning. I always feel guilty about being a good cat parent, but in the long-term everyone is happier. Willow has totally enjoyed his absents as she finds him an awful pest.

The guys sleeping

Working on projects for the next Craft Sale at the Church, December 8. We are still raising money to build a wheelchair ramp into the church hall.

Frill Seeker scarf # 1

Ruffle Scarf

Ok, you’re not seeing things. I swore up and down I would never do one of these things! Well there is an older couple at church and she was very taken with a similar scarf at the church Bazaar. Her husband a very kind man asked me if I knew anyone that would knit her a red one for Christmas… what could I say?

This pattern was designed by and available at Soper Creek Yarns.

“Bombur’s Travelling Socks”.

Bombur’s Travelling Socks, just about finished

 Toe-up, spiral toe, with after thought spiral heel. Knit 2” to 3” past the waste yarn insertion for the after thought heel. I worked the heel from the other end of the ball of yarn. Then continued to knit the leg to desired length or run out of yarn. Working from a 50gm ball, this assures that there is enough to finish the leg of the sock.

Purchased Picot edged baby blanket pattern from Churchmouse Yarns at Soper Creek Yarns last week.

    “Remodeled” – I just had a really good laugh over that. I’ve never heard it put that way before!

    I hope Jack fairs well at the vet, and comes home with only his pride hurt. You have a lot of projects going, and they all look great.

    Well Jack is finally home and very cuddly. He is very tired and really happy to be home.
