Family Tree - Clues 3 & 4

I am a week behind on this shawl. I started Clue 5 a full week after I received the clue. I know who to blame, too.

Pete is a cuddly teddy bear of a kitten, who just makes you want to pick him up and hug him. He has also figured out how to get the door open between the family room and the rest of the house, if the door isn't fully latched. So, I am spending time trying to catch him and put him back.

Claire just discovered how wonderful hands are for giving tummy rubs and pats. If I sit down with my knitting, around her, she climbs into my lap and bats at my hand to get me to use it on her tummy instead of my knitting.

Tummy Rub, Please

Humphrey got off to a slow start, and needed a couple of trips to the vet,  which used up 1 1/2  to 2 hours, each trip. The good news is that he is doing much better now, although he has acquired a taste for sitting on people to have his naps.

However, I am slowing making progress. Here is a picture of my finished Clue 3 and 4.

Since I am running out of the Main Colour, I am going to switch the Main and Contrast for the final clue.


  1. Hi, Kate: You are such a tease. Your knitting is beautiful but your kittens steal the show I don't know how you give them back, if this were me doing what you do I would have 400 cats by now. For sure, Humphrey would be staying. Great knitting, SPECTACULAR kitties :)

  2. I am glad Humphrey is feeling better. Those kitties are so lucky they have you to take care of them. Your shawl's coming along nicely!
