sew sew, knit knit, cat cat

I'm making this:
knitting work in progress

Patterson does not approve:

He says humans are not to knit or sew. They are to hold and cuddle Pattersons, always.

The sewing project is Simplicity 3788. It was extremely easy, and quite adjustable. The top is a drawstring that slides through and ties. I did use elastic in the casing for the waist instead of a drawstring, but that was the only change from the pattern.

The knitting WIP will be a tank top (eventually). Knitting takes f-o-r-e-v-e-r. Hmmm, impatient much? I tried to work off of a pattern, but my knitting fingers got antsy and my mind wandered, so it will be create-as-you-go like most of my knitting projects. It's just stockinette in the round, two color stripe, with waist shaping so far, in plain ol' cotton.
