Hi. I’m Yellow Boy.
I’ve been really helping the Mother of Cats out with her knitting. It’s a lot of work, but someone (ahem… me!) needs to keep their eye on things while she’s working. MacKenzie told me to chomp her yarn to keep her on her toes, but I’m a good boy. I like to be right in the action without actually sitting on the yarn.
It’s important that I take a good look at her work from time to time to make sure she’s staying on task. I figure that if I check things over every half hour that’s good enough.
The Mother of Cats made really good progress on the sweater and got it finished this morning. It is so cute! She took it right outside and grabbed some pictures of it before the afternoon thunderstorms started.
Before the Mother of Cats had finished this sweater she had already started fussing over the yarn for the next one. “So many sweaters, so many choices”, she keeps mumbling as she digs around in the yarns. I think that she has finally made up her mind and has settled on some blue yarn for the next sweater. But first, she is going to make some socks this weekend. Oh. Socks. I don’t do socks. MacKenzie kind of specializes in socks. I like the sweaters. And bugs. I’m a pretty big fan of chasing garter snakes, too. Why can’t the Mother of Cats let me chase garter snakes in the house?
Notes from the Mother of Cats:
The sweater is Tegna by Caitlin Hunter. This is my second Tegna sweater, this time in cotton/linen blend yarn. Here are the project notes for this one. I was so proud of my work that wore it this afternoon to go grocery shopping; there was a horrible accident at the check out lane that involved a dropped bottle of soy sauce and a carton of fresh strawberries: my beautiful Tegna is now soaking in the sink… Such is life.
Yellow Boy is the indoor bug hunter extraordinaire… anything that moves in the house gets caught and eaten. When he is short of entertaining wildlife he pulls out his toys which usually get abandoned at his food bowl. On the morning of the picture he had pulled out all three of his toy mice.

Your new sweater is beautiful! I love the color and the lace really makes it:) Sorry about the grocery incident. That’s always the way things go in my life too.
Yellow Boy: Good for you taking care of any bugs that make it into the house.
Thanks! The sweater is well and truly broken in now. 🙂
My neighbors all complain about bugs in their houses, but they are never an issue for me thanks to Yellow Boy. A neighbor with a mouse problem once asked to borrow him…
Your toy mice are cute
They are a big hit with the cats! They have little pouches for cat nip that I fill up again every couple of weeks.
Not seen those in the U.K.
The company is in California, USA. I just checked the tag, and there’s a web site. http://www.petlinkssystem.com
Thank you! I shall check them out more closely. 🙂
The sweater is beautiful!!! Oh and I hope the soy sauce comes out!!!!!
Thanks! It looks like everything came out okay. Whew! Close call.
Glad to hear all turned out;)
The camera on my cell phone is really nice. 🙂 Of course, you can’t see the other 9 shots for every good one. The breeze came up just as I was taking the sweater picture giving me that shot of sun and leaves. I’m happy with it!
well your pictures are so clear and colorful and look so beautiful!
Awesome job Yellow Boy! It must be hard work keeping the Mother of Cats on task! 😉 But thanks to you, her Tegna sweater came out AMAZING!
Thanks! It’s a tough job, but someone needs to do it…
