Thanks for all your kind words about my cape! I am working on finalizing the pattern and will let you know when it is available
There were a number of questions in my last blog post, so I will attempt to answer them here.
A couple of you asked about sleeves — the cape does not have sleeves. One question was about lengthening the sleeves. As I said, no sleeves, but the pattern will have notes on adding/subtracting length to/from the cape.
Mickey asked if I was going to do a matching hat. I had no plans to do so, but that is not a bad idea! Hmmmmmm . . .
A question about Hitofude — Jamie asked how long it is.
I took a look at the schematic and it looks like the back length ranges from 18.75 to 22″ for XS to XXL. This design would be very easy to add length to, however. I bought an extra skein of yarn for mine because I plan to do so.
I’ve made a little progress on my Hitofude, but still have a way to go on the top/sleeve piece. It is an easy knit — the lace pattern is easy to memorize so it is pleasant mindless knitting. The yarn is a pleasure to work with too.
Dorothy in Kentucky asked if Loki gets mats in his coat. I am happy to report that he does not. He has that soft Ragdoll “bunny fur” that does not mat. I brush him once or twice a week and that’s it.
Leslie asked what I feed Loki. Loki eats Life’s Abundance food — that is what he ate before I adopted him, so I’ve continued him on it and he seems perfectly happy with it.
MichelleinMaine thinks we need before and after pix of Loki for floof comparison.
Here is Loki one day after he came to live with me:
And here is a recent photo of His Royal Floofiness!
He is not fat, he’s floofy! Take a look at this photo — you can see that he has developed his “mane” in the few months since that first photo was taken.
He has recently discovered the joys of sitting in my lap, but there is a lot of Loki overhang when he gets in my lap. So I am required to hold on to him with both hands. Otherwise, he slowly slides out of my lap like unbaked bread dough being turned out of a bowl. He did this the other day, executing a slow-motion somersault as he slid down onto the couch, landing upside down in a pile of purring floofy kitty happiness, never once opening his eyes.
It must be nice to be that relaxed.
