Do As I Say

I am fully aware that I said I wouldn't do any Christmas knitting. It appears I'm a liar. I've been knitting up a storm. I can't show it all to you, but my buddy here has seen it.

This was Mr. Mocha Latte looking all non-chalant, just prior to him pouncing on my yarn, biting it and simultaneously digging his claws into my pajama clad legs. Yeouch. As cozy as he was, he was asked to leave after he started mixing it up with my yarn.


Here we have some not so stealthy winter knitting. Somebody is going to receive an awesome Michigan hat--double knit in the round--that is reversible.

This should give solace to the recipient who won't be watching Michigan play in a bowl game this year. Or not.

There's still time to knit a Spartan hat...

Hat is looking good! I think Mr. Mocha Latte would like a sweater for Christmas.

I think the difference is that you're choosing to knit, rather than feeling pressured. At least that's the way I feel. Relaxed Christmas knitting, cause these are all extra gifts; if they don't get done, no worries. The hat looks great! As does the cat. Isn't that the visiting cat?

i adore mr ml! and i'm so glad he can come inside and be a sweet cuddly visitor! (regardless his irresistable urge to get into your yarn :))

And they always look so innocent! I came down yesterday morning to find one of my skeins of embroidery thread had been given the cat treatment, they are worse than kids

What pretty blanket Mr. ML is wrapped in. If your getting your gifts done now, that will be one last thing to think about on your mini vacation.

Mr. Mocha Latte is adorable! And way to go on the knitting, Rudee. I have an old friend in Ohio who always sends me something she knit or crochet, for Christmas, and I love it.

The cat is freeloader! Shows up with empty handed with only one mission - to eat our food and sleep.

He needs to spend more time at his own home.

Cats love yarn...and quilts. Mr Mocha Latte seems to be right at home with you and your yarn.
Like that reversible hat - it looks toasty warm.

I think most of us lie about Christmas knitting. :o)
