Ms Kitty- leave that loom alone!

Ms Kitty, the feline Queen of the Studio is convinced that anything new in the studio is there for one reason.

To amuse her, of course.

So, last week, when a loom suddenly appeared in the studio, without her fore-knowledge (I forgot to warn Ms Kitty that I had indulged myself and adopted a rather large loom- oops) she assumed that I must have brought it home for her!

She took great delight in using the baby blanket that magically grew on the loom as her personal nest.

Ms Kitty refused to stay off the weaving…. so, I had to cover the baby blanket and the warp with cloths and hope for the best.  Silly old cat!

I think that I will cut cardboard panels to try to protect the warp and the weaving from Ms Kitty’s explorations from now on. We shall see…..

In spite of Ms Kitty’s assistance, I have finished the first project from the new loom… a baby blanket for my niece’s almost here baby:

Old Bears quite like it for their tea parties, so if my niece doesn’t, then Old Bears will happily give it a home…. and perhaps they can convince Ms Kitty to leave the loom and join them in a cup of tea….

    A very lovely blanket Noreen. Your neices new baby will be nice and cozy snuggled in the new blankie.


  4. Thank you so much, Alice! I hope that he will feel the love that went into weaving the blankie for him!

    Noreen, the blanket is wonderfull and seemed to go fast. I love those vintage teddys, try a little milk in the teddy tea that might intrest Ms Kitty.


  6. What lovely soft patterns you have woven into the blanket.

    I don’t think there’s any risk of your niece being other than absolutely delighted by such a beautiful and personal gift 😉


  7. That is so lovely! Makes me want to try out weaving for myself! So many crafts to learn… few hours… 🙂


  8. Hi Carolee
    Thank you so much! Lots of hours went into the baby blanket, and it was pure delight- except when I was constantly trying to shoo Ms Kitty OFF the blanket! Yikes! 🙂


  9. Ms Kitty knows a comfy spot when she sees it…I hope the new baby enjoys the comfort every bit as much!

    I don’t know any other way to contact you, so here goes. I saw your nostie video on youtube and am struggling to use mine. I picked my first one at Hobby Lobby and it is so slim, so I ordered one from ETSY that is much chunkier. My current one is a bit less than a 1/2 inch in dimeter at the end, so it produces Easter egg shaped balls of yarn that have a pencil sized center hole, which isn’t useful for me! I am struggling to get flat bottom balls, so any tips will be appreciated, though I eagerly await my new nostie!
