Tuxedo bite update...

Tux is feeling sooooo much better. He is back into his, (kind of annoying to me), "hobby", of opening doors and drawers. He loves to climb into the yarn drawers and just sit in there and watch.....


Wishing you a long-lasting, bright and sparkling future.

Health update on Tuxedo ....

He ate, used the litter box and started to walk a little around. He now is resting comfortable on his blanket in the corner. While Tux was sleeping I finished one beanie, and crochet another one for my little great niece Johanna. — feeling good.

Tuxedo was bitten by another cat....

... and needed to be seen by the Vet. Poor thing is all traumatised, so are we. He was bleeding a lot but the doctor said the wound is although deep, but clean. This picture was made at the vet office. Tux on the vet's "table"

... now resting at home. I had to wrap him into the blanket and "topple" him over because he was just sitting and put his head down and we could clearly see that he was very uncomfortable. Tux resting at his favorite spot, next to my knitting machine.

Pleats and Bows....

I found this on Ravelry and I like it very much. The pattern is from Subline. I am now looking if I am having this particular pattern in one of the Subline books I have, and when yes this will be my next project. If I can't find it, I guess I have to knit by "picture".

The longest sock ever....

I love the idea of this socks construction in theory - you knit 1 super long tube with ribbing on both ends. Then you fold the sock in half and cut it apart. You then knit an afterthought toe. After you have determined  where the heel should go place a marker and cut the heel portion open and knit an afterthought heel. Pretty neat isn't it? ....
