All Finished!

I finished up my Katama Tank the other night and yesterday I got all the ends woven in!  I started this on April Fools’ Day and got a big portion of it finished pretty quickly, but then we had a cold snap and I put it away for a bit.  Now that we’re warming up again, I’ll be able to wear it.

I made the high front version with the racer back. There’s another version also included in the pattern with a more traditional tank shape.  There are also directions for using a second color for the yoke portion.  All the variations can be seen on the Katama Tank pattern page, just scroll down through the pictures.  The pattern was well written and easy to knit and I could see myself doing this one again.  Here’s my project page on Ravelry.

On a completely different topic, Max continues to sleep in his trick bed during the day, and fall off the table every few hours.  He is mostly rolling off the table top, not sliding, which is why I haven’t attempted drawer liner or some other no slip material between him and the bed.  I think I need to tie the bed to the top of the table, but I’m partially afraid that if I take away the element of danger, he might not like the bed anymore.  Cats look for different things in their beds than humans do.  The only thing in his landing zone is a small pile of Vera Bradley bags, and they’re quilted, so he’s got a nice place to land when he does fall.  I figure if he’s that disturbed by the falling bed issue, he would stop sleeping in it.
I got a picture of him last night, sitting in the bed, not falling off.

Mac actually looks happier in this photo than most any other I've ever seen. His expression is usually one of disgust, irritation, or impatience - maybe at whoever is disturbing him and taking his photo. I'm glad he likes his movable bed.

Love from his Grandmom
