Hi. I’m MacKenzie.
A few week ago the Mother of Cats lost control of her stash and cast on project after project. There was an explosion of WIPs. The project bags and plastic containers were everywhere. I was constantly in trouble for knocking things off the table. So excitable, the Mother of Cats. I don’t think that she has her priorities aligned correctly. Cats are first, always. Everyone knows this!
This week she pulled herself together and got things done. Look at this!
Wow. Suddenly the Mother of Cats needs to clean up the coffee table by her knitting chair. There are empty needles, knitting patterns, project bags, and yarn scraps everywhere. I can hardly get to my bed with all of this chaos around it. Why does the Mother of Cats lack balance? She should learn from me. It is best to spend the day sleeping, eating, chomping cookies, causing trouble (umm… I might have eaten part of a baby rose bush…), and chasing yarn.
Tomorrow she plans to clean up and to get her last two WIPs finished off so she can WIND MORE YARN!! Oh, I really like to wind yarn. That is about my favorite thing in the world. The Mother of Cats would struggle to get things done without me.
I’m such a good boy.
Can I have cookies now?
Notes from the Mother of Cats:
- The sweater is the Daelyn Pullover and will be a great cold weather sweater for me. My project notes are here.
- The Cowl is the Dissent Cowl; I knit it with MCN in a DK weight from Western Sky Knits. It is very soft, sturdy and warm. Another cold weather star. My project notes are here.
- The socks are my own pattern to match my new Clinkerbell Cowl by Casapinka. Project notes are here.
- I have to get a pair of mitts and my thrummed mittens finished. Next week! Tomorrow I am going to wind the yarn for a new sweater!! Sturgill, here I come!!

MacKenzie: You ran out of the house! In the winter! You’re crazy! Your sweater is gorgeous! I love that red:) The cowl and socks are fantastic. I can’t wait to see what you finish next!
MacKenzie: Hey, there wasn’t that much snow at the front of the house… I wonder why the Mother of Cats was grumpy about chasing me down?
Thanks! I’m really rocking the knitting since the weather has been so cold. Every time I head out somewhere I have a new wooly item to rock. 🙂
