Forgetful, Part 2 (or: Gift #2)

I have been quite scatterbrained lately. I handed in a recent design project last Friday and now have more time to catch up on this blog. However, I completely forgot to take additional photos of the below FO before mailing it, so you’ll have to do with incomplete shots.


This is a gift for the second of my recommendation letter writers. Since the recipient is a guy, I wanted to make a hat and I had the perfect color in stash, a deep chocolate brown.


In the last photo, it looks like I’m scolding Munchkin. When she was a kitten, Mom created a bad (in my opinion) habit by allowing her to play with and bite people’s fingers. So she’s actually about to pounce.

    The hat looks black to me!

    That is a bad habit. Bad Mom. No biscuit. Good thing Munchkin’s so cute!

    The hat looks very dark brown. And guys in my opinioin are hard to give a gift to. Especially colors. I kind of like the pattern where the spiral is very defined.

    Ha…Munchkin was cute! All kittens were cute when they were little.

    one of my cats bites when he’s had too much petting time. he also bites if you don’t feed him quickly enough. it’s been a real battle getting him to stop. any tips?
