Maybe it's my Halloween mood... but I've started knitting a "rat race" scarf! Here are the first three rats:This came in a kit from Morehouse Farm (the same folks who sell the alligator scarf kit that I made for my niece last year). There will be 8 rats with beady red eyes when it's done. n This one might go to my brother... Morehouse has some seriously cute patterns but I wish the yarn was a little bit softer for wearing around the neck.
And, look! There are cats to go with the rats. This is the quilt I finished up for the East Bay Humane Society's annual cat art auction or sale. I don't know whether this will go in the auction yet, or whether I need to set a price for it. I always have trouble with that. I call it "Patient Cats Waiting for Dinner" -- sort of a lesson for Bucky, who is anything but patient when it comes to mealtime!
I tried a variety of quilting patterns in this, spurred on by Leah's 365 days of filler patterns. This one was really fun to do -- it's roughly based on her "radio static" but a little sloppier than hers!
