life with a chronic disease and a really big yarn stash
Cats, Mitts, and Baby Booties
The weather continues to be cold here. It is too cold (and snowy) for the cats to go outside so they have been hanging out upstairs on my bed. OK, the truth is that these two boys aren’t really the best of friends. Yellow Boy (AKA the PuffMuffin) steals all of MacKenzie’s kitty treats and hogs the toys. MacKenzie beats up Yellow Boy when he’s feeling grumpy. When he is cold and can’t go outside he is grumpy a lot. Life is tough for Yellow Boy on snowy days… And yet, here they are huddled together on the bed looking miserable together…
Happy (and warm) cats means that I got lots of knitting done without them trying to get warm laying on my legs and shedding clouds of fur. Here’s the week’s accomplishments:
I think that I have worked my way through the immediate urge to make mitts. I sent a RSVP for the Scleroderma Holiday Party today and it dawned on me that perhaps I should finish up on the Christmas presents. I have knitting (a shawl and a hat) and some quilting to get finished.
And cookies to bake…
And the decorations to put out…
And I will never hear the end of it if those cats don’t get a Christmas tree to play in…
Good thing I bought them a nice cuddly blanket for the bed. 🙂
I weave, knit and read in Aurora, Colorado where my garden lives. I have 2 sons, a knitting daughter-in-law, a grandson and two exceptionally spoiled kittens. In 2014 I was diagnosed with a serious rare autoimmune disease called systemic sclerosis along with Sjogren's Disease and fibromyalgia.

winter is all about keeping warm…especially for the cats!
That’s what the boys keep telling me!
miserably and grumpy as they might be…they sure found a good spot to keep warm ;0) Great knitwork!! xo Johanna
It is a huge hit with them. I may give some of these throws as Christmas presents. 🙂
I love the way you have gone out and got the cats a warmer blanket, I think we all feel the need to snuggle sometimes in the winter! An especially great purchase as it has freed you up to more knitting. I have fallen in love with the cable pair of mitts, the booties are rather cute too 🙂 x
