Jasmine's Cat

After completing the Margaret Sherry cat Purr-Pendicular for my friend, he asked if I could do 2 for his 2 nieces, different designs. So I hunted ebay and got 2 of her Calendar cats, September for Jasmine and January for Freyja. Here is the September Cat for Jasmine, it took me approximately 2 weeks to complete from start to finish. We will be giving them to his Nieces when we go to visit them for New year! The only editing I did to the design was to add on Jasmine's Name and Date of Birth, I just used some of the left over threads from the kit so it contrasted well with the design. Next to do is January's cat for Freyja!

First Cables!

I'm so pleased with how these are coming out! They are Evangeline long gloves, I'm using some wool I got from Krafty Koala (see links!), It'a aran weight and colour is called Midnight Lightening. I'm really thrilled with the effect the wool has, the white flash is so far spiralling round the glove! These will be fingerless gloves that go from hand to just before the elbow! I was dubious about making them as I have never knitted anything cabled but as you can see so far so good!
