Honeycomb Socks

If I were out in the wild hunting some deer or game, then these socks would totally complete the outfit.

Unfortunately, I have no intention of taking up hunting.

Needles: US2 dpns
Pattern: honeycomb stitch
Yarn: Sorry, I threw out the label! 50/50 acrylic wool

What do you think? You can't really tell that the colours are much more mottled than the picture shows, but they're a blend of gray-brown-cream. When I bought this yarn, I was hoping it would give me more of a subtle striping effect, but instead it gave me this hunter's camouflage effect. I can't say I love them, but they're least the yarn is really soft.

Hmm, come to think of it, they match Gatsby's fur surprisingly well. Maybe I can get them on his little paws.

Gatsby's Outdoor Adventure

Happy Monday!

I haven't done any cat-blogging in a while, so here's a little homemade video to amuse you. Also my very first youtube attempt. We stopped by the pet store today and got him a little harness so he can prowl about and enjoy the lovely weather. Notice the excellent job he does of ripping out the dead grass. The birds were sounding with alarm calls. Now if he would only stop pulling the cord too far and strangling himself...

Good boy!
