An overview of my growing collection of Labby the Angry Cat by Ngoc Vu.
Yet another Grumpy Cat? Don’t mind if I do!
I’ve been wanting to knit myself a few cardigans for quite some time as I struggle to get nice clothing in my size.
I’ve decided to make a girlfriend for Labby the Second. I guess I’m still in the mood to experiment! I want to try cutting out some of the stockinette rows in his head to see if he looks better a bit more squat.
I’ve been promising Mowbray his own handmade wardrobe for years and I finally feel comfortable enough to try. Here goes!
I don’t usually repeat patterns: once I’ve made a thing once, I consider it “conquered” and it’s now too boring to do again. However, I’m very interested in figuring out if Labby the Angry Cat can be knit in the round instead of worked flat.
After getting past the heel on both socks (I worked two at a time on different needle sets so I wouldn’t get second-sock-syndrome), I’ve decided I really don’t like these and there’s not much point in making socks for myself anyway. (I barely wear them.)
I’m going to frog these and use the yarn for something else.
I’d been wracking my brain for something to make for my (late) grandparents for Christmas 2018. Everything I’d tried so far, from a double-knit gingerbread house potholder to crocheted leaf-shaped placemats, was now in the frogged section of my projects (or deleted entirely). And then I found the perfect gift!
I had some yarn left over from my nephew’s Dinosaur Blanket set, and what better to do with it than to make some fingerless mitts for my friend who has a January birthday and lives in Boston in the ol’ US of A?
I’ve been trying to knit socks since October 2019, when Emma over at Puddleside Musings sent me some gorgeous Kool-Aid yarn that tickled my obsession with watermelons. I did not get far and decided to use the yarn for something else.
