good golly miss molly

okay, i've been holding off a new post forever to be able to introduce her properly, but forget it. i can't wait any longer. meet molly:

isn't she unbelievably adorable? we decided a few months back that it would be good to find maeve a friend; she becomes so bored during the day, and can't quite figure out how to interact with the rabbits. and then a few weeks ago, my yoga teacher mentioned that she fosters for the city shelter and had five kittens just about ready for adoption. fate? absolutely. we went over to her house and molly promptly settled in my lap. now we're just waiting for her to hit the 2 lb mark so she can be spayed and come home with us. (thanks to keri for the photos to help tide us over!)

in the meantime, we've been preparing for her arrival:

maeve and the bunnies both thoroughly approve of this awesome 70s-inspired hut/scratching post/feather toy amazingness. it was kind of a pain to put together but totally worth it!

inspired by some felt cat toys i saw at the modern dog, i also picked up organic catnip, recycled felt, and jingle bells. there really is a dearth of stylish cat toys out there, so i took matters into my own hands. and if you might remember, a few years back i decided i'd attempt embroidery? that didn't last long, but at least now i'm starting to use up some of the floss!

Oh my goodness WHERE did you find that amazing space cat bed?? My cats would flip for that!

Also, I think you should have a gander at the Alexandria Cardigan. Gorgeous yet simple. :)

wheeee!! Fun!

I won't be ready for another KAL for a couple of months, probably, it's a time of upheaval, but I look forward to seeing what you're up to - and glad that you have knitting time these days!
