Pondering new projects

Here's my Jayne Cobb hat - finished at last. As it was a mixture of yarn that I already had, it's not quite the original colours, but I think that Ma Cobb would have approved of the stash busting principle! I think I'm gonna tackle the Kittyville hat next, a mini KAL with Vinny (from Craftermath, and also the Sci-Fi Kal group). I don't really have the circular or the double pointed needles for this project though, so before I rushed out and bought some, I thought I'd knit a swatch first as I have a tendancy to knit a little tightly. I dunno, you leave your needle roll on the bed for 2 seconds and when you come back, some cat is using it for a pillow! *lol* Rankin is my oldest girl though, so I guess she deserves to take it easy! It looks like Keilo is using her for a pillow too, but I think that's the camera angle :-) Pippin (the youngest) is downstairs in her hammock - I think shes had a brawl with her nemesis, the cat next door, coz she's sporting a scratch above her eye! Teenagers, eh?

Cute kitties! One's a bit of a scrapper, eh?

Congratulations again on the Jayne hat :) If you are signed up on flickr, you should definitely add it to the Jayne Group! (at

Not necessarily a scrapper, but she's tiny (litter runt) and precoscious! She's grown up with a giant german shepherd and therefore has no fear! *lol* The other two (pictured) are alot older and can't be bothered so much! The black and white one (Rankin) is probably about 17 (not completely sure as she's a rescue cat,) and she like's sleeping, eating (she likes that alot!) and trotting around the neighbourhood for little walks! The fluffy tortoiseshell (keilo) is about 7, and she's the nighthunter. We have no mice anymore, anywhere in the vicinity, and Pippin's black (I'll get a piccy of her sometime!) and is about a year old. She's just discovered frogs :-/
I'll have a look at the flickr group - thanks for the link :-)
