Intertwined Kitty Parts

Bert really likes his big brother. Chief likes Bert a lot too. Which is good because Bert likes to walk all over Chief, find a comfortable spot and plop down for a nap. This time was Chief's head. So- what did Chief do? Put his arm around Bert and give him a hug. - good kitty!

There's a request for preemie hats from K3tog and I had a major case of "no way I'm going out in that freezing cold weather" this weekend so I knit. I got 4 preemie hats done. Two are in sport weight and two in worsted weight.

I have a major problem with needing to figure out the unknown, problems, challenges. Last week someone mentioned in their blog they were working on the Koolhaas Hat by Jared Flood. Once this person got to the decreases they had problems. Which I could remember whose blog but I can't, sorry. Anyway- I had the magazine this hat is in -Interweave Knits Holiday 2007 so I decided to give it a try. I'm using some red wool I had hanging out around the house from another project. What I can tell you about this project so far it - It's a slow go. You knit in the back of the knit stitches to get the twisted knit and every other row is a 1-1 cable stitch on every 2 of 4 sts. Cables vary between k-p and k-k cables. I'm not up to the decrease yet so I don't know what problems might come but it's an interesting hat to knit so far.

Let's just say my two cats aren't even close to that place yet!!!

It might be a slow knit, but the red hat looks great. Of course the best ones are non-fussy patterns that look great, but sometimes we can't have everything...

Good luck with it!
