Mummy decided that she wanted to make cat beds, because buying them can be so pricey and they can also sometimes be not very pretty.
So from Monday evening, Mummy started working on the project like a crazy human. In the very first attempt, she had to unravel and start again because it turned out too small for any of us. Daddy was wearing it like a hat! mawhawhaw! In the second attempt, she had to expand the size of the entire thing. Mummy also learned how to bind.
Mummy is a complete beginner knitter and sewer. But she has an ambition to become very good at both! She wants to buy a proper sewing machine when we move to Malaysia, but for now, she just bought a ultra-cheapo one for $25 (that's AU$!). She said the warranty lasts 3 months, and that is longer than we'll be here. So she said it's okay if it breaks many times. mawhawhaw! So far, it hasn't broken.
Mummy spent a long time doing the binding bit, because she's never done it before. She just looked up the internet to learn all that stuff.
Anymeow, she finished her first cat bed last night!!! It is SO comfy!
And furrry pretty!!
Mummy says she is going to make improvements to this pattern and also test another pattern. There are four of us, so we need AT LEAST four! Test away, Mummy! purrr
Mummy also made little mats with the same fabric!
Here is Miss Pricilla. She still loves Mummy's special blankie! Pricilla has a scratch on her nose now (we suspect Yuji) so she's in a bad mood. We hope it heals very soon, but she keeps licking the scab off!
In other news, Cat Daddy was given a digital camera as a going away present from one of his violin students. Mummy and Daddy were completely amazed! They didn't expect such a thing! That is very generous of his student. Wow! We are grateful.
Mummy has been trying to learn the new camera. She currently uses a Panasonic and the new one is a Sony. Mummy basically has no idea how photography works, so the more intuitive the camera, the better! mawahawhaw! These were the best pictures she took with the new camera, but they are not very good.
Cameras are confusing. We hope it still brings out our beauty! purrrr
Hope you're having a great week!
