Mulligan

I’m going to take a mulligan on the original pumpkin hat. My friend Beverly came to knitting with her own lovely pumpkin hat knit for her grandson who is about the same age as my cousin. Let’s just say it now appears the first hat I knit was grossly miscalculated for the size head it needs to be. I don’t know – I knit to gauge – seemed to be right everything, but my hat just seemed small and not nearly as hefty for cold fall weather as Bev’s lovely hat would be. Well I fretted of course, so Beverly, who was going to make another one, gifted me the yarn she used and sent me off with a blessing to make a new one. Thanks Beverly!!!

To not disappoint, I ran right home and casted on. All right baby!!! Now we’re cooking with gas.

Emma, who was a shy, nervous, wallflower of a kitten has become quite a little funny lady. I caught her doing some play on their screened in porch. This tree is going to be cleaned and moved back in – well before the cold weather comes our way, but she was having a time of it today. I swear those are the most perfect pale green eyes.

You know when things are meant to be, well we knew we were going to bring Emma home, but when her sweet brother Jack was seemingly left behind, we knew we couldn’t leave him – actually we talked about bringing two home that day, so we actually never planned on leaving him. Jack was just what she needed to come out of her shell and help her adjust into a happy kitty today. I love her perfect little black nose and lovely pink little mouth.

  • Be sure and check out the candy corn hat that’s going around on Ravelry, too darn cute! Unfortunately the babies I’m knitting for are arriving a bit too late for that. *Love* the Emma pictures, she’s adorable!
