It sometimes seems that there are a disproportionate number of knitters who are also cat owners. I’m not quite sure why this is, but I’ve recently joined their ranks. Two gorgeous Abyssinian kittens have come to live with us and, in a very short period of time, they have completely enchanted us all.
While I was knitting on a recent bitterly cold night, Zahra crawled into my dressing gown, curled up into a ball with her little head on my knitting, and went to sleep. Isn’t she sweet?
There’s something rather special about having a tiny ball of fur cuddled up to you while you’re knitting. Maybe that’s the reason…
(Officially, the kittens belong to the children, but I’m allowed kitty cuddles too…)
