Pets, knitting and FNSI

I am happily wearing my new cardy today, thanks to size 9mm needles it was a super quick project.  It is not perfect but, considering the yarn was only $20 total, it is okay.  In the pattern (Jo Sharp Yoke Cardigan) it is worn with a shawl pin, which I don't have, so I am wearing it with my liberty brooch that I bought from Fiona Marie.  I attempted blocking it a little to stop it curling up at the edges.  Then I put it out in the sun to dry so of course both cats investigated and Holly spent the afternoon sleeping on it, I'm not sure if that helped with the blocking!  Holly loves to be near us but prefers that we don't pick her up or put her on our knee which is why she looks reluctant in my cuddle.  My husband thinks I look like Wilson from Home Improvement.  And I had to include this photo of Josh and the chickens, too cute!  And, lastly, I have signed up for FNSI at Handmade by Heidi, I already have my project organised.  Now I better get on with tidying as we have people coming over tonight, Wendy xx

  16. Wendy perhaps the cats think you are taking their good cosy blanket from them LOL... beautiful cardy, such a versatile colour... We are expecting a very nasty weather front tonight, so I will be happily cross stitching on the sofa, protected on my slippers!

  18. Love your cardi. Looks like it could be a fight as to who gets it in the winter... you or the cats. My money is on the cat!
    Great photos of both you and Josh and the chook is a bit of a looker too ;o)
