At the end of the post, I will show you my progress on my Cloud Illusions shawl, but really, how can that compare to KITTENS?????
|NATASHA (the sweetest of the sweet!)|
|LOKI (Emma has him spoiled rotten already!)|
|HULK AND THOR (two big boy twins who love to play!)|
|You can see how tiny they are by the size of this one next to my hand!|
|Did I mention how sweet Natasha is?|
|Who can resist watching kittens play?|
|And I love how they all fall asleep together suddenly, as if a bell rings to tell them "Time Out!"|
They all kind of fall down in a pile and sleep however they fall :*D
|How do they manage to fall asleep in these positions???|
|There were kittens everywhere you looked! |
We had to be so careful to watch where we were sitting and walking!
|Mama Addie is doing a really fine job for her first (and last!) litter! |
She's such a sweetheart!!!
While my daughter and the kittens were sleeping, I managed to get quite a lot done on my Cloud Illusions shawl! I finished the beginning section - the Garter Stitch Body, and have completed 17 rows of the lace section.
I stopped by the Knaughty Knitter on my way out of town to compare the size of mine with the shop sample (you can see the sample in a previous post by clicking HERE). Meredith knitted hers using a cotton yarn and following the small size pattern, but my yarn is more of a lace yarn which makes it work up much smaller than her sample, so I wasn't sure whether to stop at the small version like she did or go on with the extended size. After comparing the two, I decided to go for the larger size in order to get it closer to the size I liked. Fortunately, I had purchased two skeins of this gorgeous yarn just in case, because she didn't have any more.
So far, I think the lace pattern is working out well....this is really fun seeing the design come to life!!!
You can see other yarn projects over at Judy's Patchwork Times today.
Hugs & Blessings!
