WOW and Socks

I have had a request to post more kitty pictures on WOW (Hi Nikki!).  Three out of the 4 were cooperative this morning.   Since Taz had to visit Dr. Jimmy this past Saturday he has tried to stay hidden under the coffee table but Beamer just wants attention.

Hershey has ventured out more from the back of the house and I think Beamer's sight and smell aren't quite as sharp as he gets older and he doesn't pay as much attention to Hershey.

The latest pair of socks to be finished were a pattern from Socks from the Toe Up by Wendy Johnson.

Love the kitty pictures - "Wow" back at them from my Meezers.

Those who love Wendy's patterns but knit top down - she once answered my question that you can just reverse many of her patterns.

Thank you Wendy... The boys are so gorgeous and cuddly, hmmmm, Cisco I guess decided to play Hide & Seek... It amazes me the socks you knit, I didn't know that home knitted socks looked like real socks... LOL at me... :) You do some great knitting too, I've checked out some of your pics..

Beautiful kitties!!!!!-----as well as the socks. I was just going to ask when you were going to try the toe-up when I saw that you said it would be soon! The only thing I'm finding difficult is getting the right length of the foot. My toe-ups always seem to be a bit long. I really like not having to do the graft at the toe, but I like the looks of the slip-stitch heel of the cuff-down. I'm going to try the gusset heel next. It looks very nice in the KAL socks that have been completed.

What handsome babies!! I'm not sure how I found your blog, but I'm a knitter who has Tonkinese kitties (sadly, recently down to only two from three but that was down from four). You babies must be Tonkinese, is that right? And you are from the south? My first two came from a lovely woman named Mary Parker in Alabama. You wouldn't know her, would you? Small chance, I imagine, but I had to ask! Have a wonderful day!
