Hi. I’m Hannah.
I’ve taken on a huge adventure! I heard last week from Sharon from Security that there has been a huge crisis… the Priceless Golden Bag of Cat Treats has been stolen by Chad the Mongolian Death Worm from the Museum of Gyptian Civilization in Cairo. Sharon from Security needed me to head right over to Cairo to help out with the investigation.
I immediately dusted off my passport and booked a flight to Cairo on Sharon Air so I could join Sharon in the investigation. Sharon made the arrangements for me to fly Cardboard Box Class (instead of Squeakin Mouse Class or Litter Class) which was just fabulous because…
Anyway, my flight left last Friday, and I was off to help the best I could. That Chad is a sneaky one and I think that he probably already slithered (slimed?) his way out of Cairo and before you know it, I will be back in the air heading to a new location.
Okay, if you haven’t figured it all out yet, I am doing the Sharon Air MKAL with the Mother of Cats and we started with the first clue last Friday. The Mother of Cats worried about the colors of yarns a lot and kept digging around in the yarn stash for a couple of weeks looking for nice yarns to use. She finally settled on these:
I’m not really, really in Cairo, but is sure is fun to pretend that I am. I bet there are great bugs there for me to chase. Did you see that my job on the passport is “Flycatcher”? I am such a great flycatcher that I knocked over a lamp and tore down some curtains this week. The Mother of Cats was pretty cool about all the commotion, but I think that I had better take it easy for a couple of days. There was also a problem with an orchid plant hitting the ground, but the CoalBear did that one… did I mention that there was a fly?
I’ve been taking my job as knitting helper really seriously and the Mother of Cats only make a few mistakes (Sharon Snax) and hasn’t done any whining or done anything to earn a citation from Sharon. That Sharon, she doesn’t put up with any whining or questions from humans who stupidly failed to read the directions which is absolutely reasonable, right? I love Sharon! Did I mention that the cardboard box on the plane had a little hole in it so I could poke my neighbor? Yay!
Sharon is really busy and won’t have time to send us more clues until Friday so I’m going to just keep myself busy for a couple of days while the Mother of Cats knits on boring stuff like socks and hats and who knows what else. Maybe she will knit me another toy mouse. I hope that she makes me a warm parka because Sharon did drop a clue about having to go to somewhere cold for the next part of the investigation. I don’t like snow very much; nasty stuff, snow. Maybe she can knit pink booties for my feet? Darn it, this investigation stuff is hard work!
This is Hannah, signing off.
Sharon loves sushi, but I am going to go hunt up a fly to chase.
Note from the Mother of Cats: Sharon is Casapinka’s employee/security specialist/cat and this MKAL is run by them. You can check out my Ravelry page here if you are interested in knowing more about my yarns.

Do you really expect us to believe that it was the Coalbear?
I love cats, yarn, and a good mystery. Darn those flies, though. 😉
The cats have really been wreaking havoc this week because of the bugs. Hopefully it will calm down soon. The weather is much cooler this week and I think that helps keep flies outside.
At least your cats are interested in Sharon Air. Mine just turned over and went back to sleep.
I’m pretty grateful that the CoalBear is ignoring the knitting because he has such a huge prey drive there is no stopping him if he wants to play. The baby bunny is hanging out in the backyard by their window which helps a lot!
I love those yarn choices! and the MKAL to date looks really good. Hopefully the cardboard air flight won’t go someplace *too* cold (though it would be a nice change from all this heat).
We’re off to New Zealand!! Unfortunately, Hannah’s boarding pass says… Litter Class.
Oh dear. Litter Class does not sound fun.
Hannah: you have to grip with your claws so you don’t slide around on takeoff!!! Thank heavens my claws are nice and sharp! The Mother of Cats clips the CoalBears because he is annoying and slashes at ankles…
Hannah – be good for Mother of Cats! You are a great knitting helper to her, but maybe take it easy on the house, even if there is a fly 🙂 But enjoy your adventure! How great to travel to Cairo, especially cardboard box class!
Marilyn, your yarn choices are beautiful and the shawl is looking lovely so far. Great pictures of your beautiful girl 🙂
Thank you. I really am looking forward to getting to use the pink in the shawl, but I do like what is happening now. I’m happy to finally be getting good pictures of Hannah. She wouldn’t let me take her picture for months after I brought Mateo home… I think that she was just so stressed out. Now that he is calming down she is out and picture friendly again.
She is such a beautiful girl! What a personality she has 🙂
