Melba Gets a Sweater

14 Mar

Melba is so little and we are so cold that she was still struggling to stay warm when she came out from under the heat lamp.  I found the coat I had for Uno.

I think this was his second or third coat. (with mom, Maisie)

But the smallest was about twice as big as it needed to be.

Melba lost the coat when she tried walking around.

So I spent an afternoon knitting one.  This one is an XXS.

It was even a free pattern HERE with a link to a video tutorial.

Hmmm…I wonder what size the cats would wear.

The sweater is happy to do its job.

And it fit perfectly!

So now I’m going to make the next size up and a couple more.

Because it’s still cold. And maybe just because it’s cute.  I’m thinking pink…

Everyone Else

10 Mar

As I move into spring break kidding, everyone else is probably going to be neglected. Not really, but they won’t get the attention of my girls who are kidding, old, and ill.  So here’s a bunch of pictures of everyone else.

My littles: Ostara, Zora, Pretzel, and Heidi.

Chiffon, Bubbles, and Heidi–I think I’ve decided Bubbles is open.

The herd

And a peak from what’s happening with knitting.

I finished my second raglan pullover sweater.

Now I’m working on a cardigan.

Come on babies because I’m now on spring break!

Getting Round

8 Feb

It’s hard to believe that spring break is just a little over a month away.  And Easter weekend is only about seven weeks away.  That means, I’m starting to pay attention to who is looking round.











Soon, I’ll do some udder checks (much to their annoyance) to try and confirm who is due.
