WIP; gratuitous pictures of The Kitten for no reason in particular

The Kitten came into our lives about a year and a half ago now, and if you'd asked me then if I would love her as much as I do now, I'd have told you not to be silly, it's just a pet.

But The Kitten is so adorable, it's now hard to imagine what life would be like without her.  She waits for you at the door when you get home.  She answers you when you talk to her.  She wriggles under the blankets in the bed of a night time.  She has more than a hundred facial expressions, many of them full of insolence.  She goes bonkers sometimes and runs up and down the house in an indescribably hilarious fashion.  She loves her blue mousey, and carries it around everywhere.

I really do need to stop talking about her sometimes when around people who just don't understand...

Now onto the promised gratuitous photos!  I probably take too many photos of her, but she's so cute!! The Kitten montage is totally inspired *coughrippedfromcough* by Alice from Crochet with Raymond.

Now onto the WIP.  I'm still working on the silky sunshine and fairy floss shawl, but you don't need to see that again.  My other main project at the moment is a wrap for my mum.  I mentioned this was on my to do list a while ago.  The pattern is the Aran Toggle Wrap.  I've made a few modifications to the pattern to make it bigger, which I'll try to note down at another stage.

It's hard to photograph, because it's so big!  At the moment I'm about half way and it's 134cm long and 52cm wide.
