Hats For The Piggies

21 Oct

It rained today (maybe because I didn’t hang my Teru Teru Bozu up last night) so I had some free time on my hands. I wasn’t really sure what to make, but came across this adorable pattern for a guinea pig Santa hat, and I couldn’t resist!

I’m not sure the pigs, Jojo and Twix, will have much of an opinion on it, but I think it’ll still make a good present for them.

I’ll put some pictures up of our pets with their presents on Christmas.

See you soon,

Paws: A Christmas Cat’s Best Friend

20 Oct

65 days remain until Christmas, but I like to get ahead of the game and start early with present organisation. Today, I made my cat, Tuesday, his gift – a knitted Christmas mouse toy.

It’s going to be for when he’s calm only (hence the name Paws) – it’s meant to be his mousey version of a teddy bear. I’m hoping that he won’t destroy it, but he can be pretty lethal with his claws at times!

It’s his birthday on the 30th of October too, so for that, I will knit him Paws’ heavy-duty brother, Claws from string instead of wool, and maybe stuff him with a little bit of catnip too.

Thanks very much to Wilderness Witch Knits for this fantastic pattern which created Paws (and will be used to create Claws too):
