Friday Cats (and a little yarn pr0n too)

How did the boys know that I would need a darling picture of them for a Friday Cat post?

The shredder is barely big enough for one cat, let alone two, especially when one is the size of Hi-Hi.
Who is not fat. He's just fluffy.

Uh huh.

Yes, they are both full-grown cats. Simon is just a little guy and Hi-Hi is a big guy. It's that Maine Coon thing, I'm sure. He also has a teeny tiny voice. A broken meow-er, as it were.

The Knit Happens order came. Right after the Black Sheep spree. Oh, my. The Silk Garden is lovely and soft (yes, those are the same color and dye lot!), the Bullfrogs and Butterflies is a lovely color--Black Purl, mmm--mmm--good! The lone ball of KSH is soft and yummy too. The Silk Rhapsody? Well, I didn't remember ordering it in Glow-in-the-Dark brights! So hmmm, this one is going to have to marinate a bit. However, there are granddaughters, and they might like a nice jazzy scarf, vest, or something wonderfully soft and lush...that glows in the dark.
Elann's April newsletter came today. I have not opened the email. I may send it directly to my trash folder. Then empty the trash. I DO NOT NEED MORE YARN!!!
Yeah, I've said it before. Sigh.

My two fluffbottoms can barely stand to be in the same room together, let alone share shredder space. How sweet to see two happy kitties living in harmony!

Fluff! Fluff! Fluff!

Lovely yarn goodies, too - I love the black purl colorway.

And the yarns look even more beautiful in person. I really like the glow-in-the-dark silk rhapsody!

Madge said...

Awww, look at those boys. They're handsome devils, that's for sure!

My goodness, the fluff! So that's where the Matisse's fluff goes... he's a ragdoll, but yep, all that fluff too!

Knit Happens! Me too. Mmmmm. I like the glowing yarn too.

Ooohhh, I want to come and give scritches and hear mini-purrs. Lovely photos!

Elann will have yet another lovely shawl pattern available on Tuesday. It features a new Elann house-brand yarn, but will be lovely in many types of yarn. I subscribed to the Elann mini-skeins before I vowed to KFTS - Knit From The Stash. I didn't *mean* to tempt myself so much....

This reminds me of Obleix's cry that he's "not Fat , just well covered" - as your delightful moggy is.

Your Simon is a smaller twin to my Einstein (I had a dog (miss him still) named Darwin, too ~ I'm a scientist junky, I guess). These guys have the sweetest faces! Especially when they're up to something!

I made an entire sweater out of Silk Garden, and it's gorgeous. You do have to fiddle with the color runs a bit, and don't get discouraged at having to pick out bits of hay? dried grass? small twigs? from the yarn. The results are worth it!
