Hello............. I have some news to share with you all today.

and it's not only that I've started a new blanket................

it's because I'm introducing you all to the Summerhouse's new crafting assistants, this is Monty

and here's our Alfie, they are both eight weeks old today.

For the last few weeks I've been working on this mini blanket for them, I'm using left over  Lana Gatto merino, it's so lovely and soft, (just like them)

I'm using Lucy's Hydrangea pattern from over at Attic24, as it's perfect as the weave is quite tight so little kitties can't snag they're claws in the holes. (hopefully)

 I'm not quite finished yet as little kittens can be quite distracting

who am I kidding, these little cuties mean that all crocheting and crafts have stuttered to a halt, they are completely bonkers and no yarn or crochet hook would be safe around them at the moment, I need to train them up a bit.

I'll get there though and lets face it they are a wonderful distraction, it's been a long time since we had kittens at the summerhouse and we've never had two at the same time before.... yay for double trouble, I love to see them charging about and playing, so so sweet.

Even when they are conspiring about the best was to get into the craft basket.

Aww so lovely to have some little kitties

here again.

Happy Crafting

  1. Aaaaaw they are soooo cute! I can now crochet without too much hassle from the dog but can't leave wool out anywhere still!
    Your blanket is gorgeous, love the colours

  2. I a in love with your kitties. They are so darling! And I think it's good to adopt siblings. That seems to make for happy cats.

  3. They are just darling. I've been enjoying the photos on IG of their fun times and play. Lots of love to go around.

  4. They are adorable, what a wonderful distraction.

  5. Sooooo cute! Watch that yarn though.... Jo x

  6. Oh Claire they are so adorable. Enjoy!

  7. Thanks for sharing your new assistants with us :) We currently do not have any cats but I have fond memories of the ones that were with us and it will be fun to watch you enjoy yours. I love the pretty blanket you made for them! xx
