LOVEly assistant

I think I am the slowest knitter on this planet.
It doesn't help, though, to have a knitting buddy that is so cute and soft.

I'm still working away with red wool. I'll be happy to move on to another colour soon.
It's a little gift for my first grandittle, Riley for Valentines Day. A bed-cover and pillow for her dolly bed.

I am so lucky to have such handsome company in my day. And he is such a help!

                                                   WE sat and knit for two hours yesterday.

I do believe he is becoming quite bored with his cat-sitter, though.

I guess it's time to play cat and mouse for awhile.

THIS is why it is taking me forever to finish one project. =^..^=

hugs, Deb


  1. Hi Deb....Thank you so much for visiting me goodness, you do have such a beautiful knitting buddy there...I think I'd be far too distracted too!
    Happy Thursday,
    Susan x

  2. He is very handsome. Love his coloring.
    I sit in the mornings with a cat near or on my lap.
    My dogs go in and out.
    That's when I spend time on the puter.
    Catching up on blogs and the world.

  3. My cats help me with my knitting so much , that I've given up completely.

    PS That guy is HANDSOME!

  4. What a cutie!
    Who could concentrate on knitting :)

  5. You'd have accomplished nothing with Jenna around that yarn!

  6. Your knitting companion is very handsome. I have lots of help when the yarn comes out. They look, watch, get bored and lay down right next to me so that I can't move the needles. !!!

  7. Your helper looks so interested! I bet he made the whole experience a lot more fun. :-)

  8. You certainly do have some darn good looking clients!
    Your knitting looks good....what are you talking about? better get crackin'.....tomorrow's your deadline!
    Enjoy your evening.....
    Linda :o)

  9. So cute! I would think they might grab the yarn and run! It's what Charlie does with ribbon when I'm trying to wrap a present!

  10. I know what you mean with regard to trying to knit with an 'assistant' near by. My foster-cat, Cammie, has discovered my lap, especially while I am trying to write. It's tough trying to write with one hand and rub a cat's head with the other. It's like one of those co-ordination exercises.

  11. I don't believe I'd get much knitting done with such a beauty in my lap either. I actually don't get as much as I could done because I have TWO of them wanting my attention. :-) I open the door to the bird feeders so they'll be content for a few hours while I get some work done. But I love having them nearby just as they love being nearby.

  12. Cutie cat! I have to hide my wooden needles all the time, because the cats loves to chew on them. One bite and that's it for the needle!
