Momcat the Knitwit


Momcat is in a beginners' knitting class. Last night she finished the body of a scarf. I tried to help by making biscuits on the soft yarn, but she didn't seem to appreciate my efforts.  And she had the nerve to shoo Sundance away when Sunny was trying help guide the knitting needle.

Despite this, I'm pleased with Momcat. Amid the occasional dropped stitch, accidental increase or decrease, and tension problem, I think the scarf has turned out very well, especially for a first effort.  Next step is to weave in the ends and add corner tassels.

Maggie's Toys

Maggie has a very nice selection of toys. She really likes the soft ones with squeakers. Some of her favorites are at the toy hospital.


Maggie picked out the giraffe and monkey herself when Momcat took her on a field trip to PetSmart. That was when she was a little puppy. Maggie is now about 9 months old.

Cruelly, Momcat brought home the black cat a couple of weeks before Halloween. She found it funny that there was a squeaker in the cat's bottom. I was not amused.

You can see how forlorn Maggie is as she waits for her favorite toys. She's stuck chewing on a yukky rawhide bone that was found under the sofa covered in dust bunnies. Even I have to feel a little sorry for her.

  Hopefully, Mr. Giraffe, MonkeyBones and Spooky will be discharged from the toy hospital soon.

Have you taken 15 minutes to create something today? Now's your chance!

Pi, if dogs weren't so destructive, their toys wouldn't need to go to the toy hospital. Don't feel sorry for the pup. Our resident canine destroys EVERYTHING, even the supposedly indestructible toys. So, it is rawhide bones for him almost all the time - at least he is supposed to destroy those. Tell Momcat that the scarf is great. I started learning to knit this spring, but got stuck and have stalled out. I'll be picking it up again once my sister visits and gives me another lesson.
