Where my cat again gets me to do what she wants, even when I'm sleeping.

I woke up early the other morning and noticed this little cube-y shaped blob at the end of the hall.

I am blind as a bat without my glasses, but even lens-less and from across the house I could tell that it was staring at me, imploring me to rise.

It was a little cat, sitting in a nest of messed-up 'ghan squares, looking (typically) concerned that things had stalled out.

She is probably right to be concerned. I have a history of leaving broke-down cars on the side of the road.

She does look sad, doesn't she?

Don't worry so much, Bridget! I have nine squares I haven't even blocked yet. They're all downstairs on the coffee table. I've been making one a night, after I'm done with my other stuff. It's granny-square dessert. No-calorie, and you even burn six or seven cals while making one, I bet. I'll show you tomorrow, when there's more than dawn-light to photograph them by, ahem.

I am more and more in love with B. At least the sweet girl didn't carry them all to your bed. The other morning I rolled over onto DPNs(ouch)and a couple of balls of cat-spit enhanced Koigu.

pweh-shish B. sha-weet shuga-shang of a pumpkin liver.

(a typical mushy cat name around these parts...)

sweet partner in the crochet work progress!!!

So lovely!

B sure does look lazy sitting cozily on those squares, but have you counted them? Maybe she whipped up a couple for you during the night. (I assume you've taught her to crochet, or maybe she's just been watching you closely enough to get the hang of it).

Never underestimate a cat:

I LOVE that last action shot!!! I can never get my guys (2 cats & 2 dogs!) to sit still long enough for photoshoots, so I love dropping by to check out sweet B! Cute as always!

Aww so cute. And I love what looks like black or navy in that one square, I love how black really sparks things up. xo

Oh - Your cute kitty pictures are some of my very favorites!! She really does seem to be imploring you you to get more of them done, doesn't she?! Just so she'll have more fun messing with them when you aren't around! Gosh, I love the kitties!!

Thats hysterical. Even close up I couldn't tell what it was in the first shot, I'm as blind as a bat also. That comment about the black or blue is sooo true isn't it. I usually add black to anything that I crochet that has a lot of colors it just seems to make the other colors pop!

Ha! I love picture #2, leading to picture #3. Such a sweet little cube-let.

Your sweet Bridget is so adorable. I love your idea of making a square a night... instead of a snack. Tonight, I shall have a cup of decaf and crochet a delectable granny.

Thanks for your inspiration.

That is so cute! And thankfully you didn't wake to find her inches from you on the bed, staring at you. That would be a little freaky.

Love your house...and noticed you have an icon! I have many, from my Russian Orthodox grandma. I love them all.

she really specifies the ghans, doesn't she? or does she nest in other soft/woolly places?
in any case, go puddytat.

Goodness....that is funny!

And isn't it typical that a cat will lay on things you really don't want them laying on? Mine like to lay on freshly ironed clothes =^..^=

"Let's don't get off track here, OK?" she seems to be saying. Glad you were able to reassure her!!

She is so impatient! Can you blame her? She wants her blanket, and is probably worried that you won't finish it for her.

The squares are looking lovely, BTW. I love the colours!

Your sweet cat is willing you on - i can see it in her eyes!!
She is looking as lovely as ever x

Kitty is an early riser!

From the perspective of a fellow cat-owner, it looks like they were waiting for breakfast, patiently and quite comfortably, but alert to signs of human movement!

LOL What a sweet picture!!!! I'd say she looks more annoyed than sad, personally.

Haha she is saying "See what I have to lay on since you haven't finished MY blanket! "

What a cute sweet kitty, and typical cat behavior, lol!

Boy the squares (and Bridget) look beautiful!

My heavens, do you sleep with the camera at your bedside so you can whip it out and get shots like these early in the morning? Not that I'm complaining about your photographs...love 'em, it's half the reason I visit every day!

How cutie! Your kitty is so sweet. I love when my cat wants to help finish projects, special.
