The adventure of Miss P and Aunt V.

Miss P did indeed come home with Dave and I after the wedding.

Poor little Peno cat is firmly ensconced under my bed. I did manage to get her out for a few moments. I closed the bedroom door and an hour later, Miss P was at the top of the stairs petting her.
Of course, as soon as the bedroom door was opened again, Peno found her way back under the bed and won't come out again.

Miss P also manged to lose a toothand swindle Dave and I out of $5 for it. (most the tooth fairy ever gave me was a quarter - that's some serious inflation!)

We've also been playing with sculpeymostly making beads.

There has also been knitting - Miss P did three rows on a cat blanketAnd I made an octopus! This is another of Hansi Singh's patterns. Surprisingly, it was even easier than the Loch Ness Monsters. It could easily be knit in a long afternoon.

This one was knit in leftover Big Cat (colour is Huntsman) and a spare ball of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran for the under side.

I definitely see more octopi in my future.... but maybe after Miss Pee goes home.

Wow, that octopus turned out so beautiful! Colour is perfect for a sea creature!

What a cool octopus! I love how the legs are all twisty just like the real thing!

That's a great octopus! I might have to try that pattern too while I build my octopi army! They're infectious little things, aren't they?

Love the Octupus! And hopefully Peno will receive compensation in full this week for a weekend of obligatory hiding!
