Year of Projects Week 14 & 15

So this is all the knitting (or crafting in general) I've done for the last 2 weeks (except a very small and secret project). It's the start of my socks, which I am making from the Joy of Sox book. It's these: Make-up Socks. I love the leafy vine pattern, and I thought that the autumnal colours of my yarn went with the pattern perfectly.

In other news, we seem to have gained a fur baby
She's adorable, and so fluffy! We have no idea who she belongs to, but we let her in the house for a bit last night, and after we went to bed, we could hear her crying outside the door! And now she's asleep on our spare bed... She'll be out again tonight, but I hope she has a house to go to! She has a collar on, but it's very old and battered, so I'm not sure if she has an owner or not. I know that we feed her, and next door to us feed her, and I've never seen her go to any other houses. She could go when we're not there, but I always see her outside on the street if she's not at ours or next doors'. Also, she's not spayed, and my friend thinks she might be pregnant. Having only experience of a male cat, I have no idea if that's true or not... What do you think?


  1. If she's begging to come in, she very well could be pregnant.

    I would consider posting signs, if possible, in the neighborhood to see if someone claims her (or knows where she goes). If not, perhaps take her to the vet to see if she is, indeed, pregnant.

  2. She's super cute (and could be pregnant).

  3. When we had a potential stray coming around, we put a message on a collar saying "if you are the owner of this cat please can you call XX number" and we got to speak to his owners and find out his story. didn't stop us feeding him though!

    if you don't think she leaves the area of your house/next door, posters or going round knocking might be a better alternative.

  4. That's a great sock pattern! Very pretty.

    I have no idea on the cat, except I fear fleas and probably wouldn't have let an unknown outdoor cat in anyway. Fleas love me. (Plus we already have a cat. We tried adding another once; it didn't work out too well for the first cat.)
