A Cat and a Hat

In January (or was it February?) I knitted a hat. It was supposed to be a gift for an adult, but when I tried it on and realized how small it was, I busted out with a laugh. I think it's supposed to be more like a beanie, which I suppose an adult could wear. I personally like knitted hats that go over my ears, but beanies are cute, too. This hat had something unique to it because I had to knit a patch. It was pretty simple.

I finally sewed up the seams on my sweater I started last year! I was checking everything out before I headed to the local yarn shop to get some help with my sweater. I had it laying on the floor and what do you know, Mr. Tig had to come over and check it out. I had a sneaky suspicion that he would enjoy laying on it, and that's exactly what he did. It's super soft, so I can't blame him. He's hilarious!

Right now I'm working on knitting a handbag/purse for myself. I'm hoping to finish it before I leave for Michigan next week so I can get help from my sister and step-mom Kelly with how to line it with fabric.
