Mini-ManCat Monday

When she walked ... she stretched out long and thin like a little tiger, and held her head high to look over the grass as if she were threading the jungle. - Sarah Orne Jewett 

It has been a quiet week around here. Mum was mostly home, working on her hats, yes hats. Reading and otherwise not doing much. 

Me with hat number one. Below hat number one on mum's head outside in the sun.  This one is knitted

Hat number two on mum, this is a crow-shay hat. This took her all of three hours to make. Hat number one took three days. She was all squinty since the sun was out! Plus the sun is far enuf north it is starting to come inside our back windows.

Checking out mum's pile of books. Plus the mag from the book place about new books. 

Feetsball Report

I don't have one. The big game is next weekend. We did not watch the flag football game.  

Have a good week everyone!


  1. The hats are nice. I like the crochet one better, but I think the knitted one would be warmer.

  2. It's nice to see your Moms new endeavours. We are totally ignorant about knitting and crochet and wonder what the pros and cons are, other than the time it takes.

    Looking good, Ducky!

  3. As a child, my mother knit or crocheted most of our winter hats, scarves, and mittens.
    The memories of her pulling her three-needle knitting onto my head, to make sure she had the right size, are ones that I'll never forget!
    She always matched the yarn colors with our coats.

  4. Nice hats!!! You're doing a good job checking out those books.


Don't be shy, we loves to hear your meows and mews.
