Weekend Summed Up

The winner of my review copy of The Knitted Hat Book: 20 Knitted Beanies, Tams, Cloches, and More by Interweave Editors is Rosemary, who has been notified via email.

Here in the U.S. we are on Day Two of a three-day weekend, and I can sum up my weekend with one photo:

I am knitting the bands on my colorwork coat. All bands al the time.

Meanwhile, the awesome responsibility for picking a winner in my book giveaway has been too much for Loki. He has collapsed under the pressure.

Being a cat is hard work!


  1. Gorgeous sweater!

  2. People do not understand how hard it is to be a cat.

  3. What a beauty!

    My cats must constantly struggle to ensure they nap at least 20 hours out of every 24. Why, it must be *exhausting* to have to sleep 5/6ths of the day! Especially when a kitty must supervise his momma making knitting as beautiful as yours!

  5. The coat is a work of art! I’ve got the three day when’d too- making good progress on my seven arrows shawl.

  6. How does he ever find himself inside all that fur and cuteness.

  7. Being a that adorable is wearing poor Loki out! Being a famous cat can be hard work!
    Your colorwork is gorgeous, but I am missing the lace days.
