Naughty Pumpkin

Here it is! 
 Not exactly beautiful, but the knot is now doable!
Next time, I will tat a longer chain as this one was just too short.
#4, 100 Motif Challenge

I had to borrow Gian's cord to practice the knot. 
 I was so deep in concentration that I was not aware 
that he was sitting about a foot away from me... glaring!

Suddenly, I felt his steely gaze; 
I was forced to go and cut a length of my own cord...


  1. cute little pumpkin! (pun intended) LOL

  2. That is beautiful, a cute little pumpkin. Perhaps I ought to give Celtic tatting another go.

  3. This pumpkin is so sweet and cute! And Gian's gaze is so hard :)
    I love the way into which cats sometimes are watching...

  4. I'm impressed Fox (even if Gian wasn't!). You are a better woman than me!

  5. I don't think that pumpkin looks bad especially since no real ones are perfect! But, if it had been done in brown it would be a perfect acorn. :)

  6. Gian's a l'air effectivement très concentré sur votre travail....Je lui fait une énorme caresse.. Elle est pas facile à faire cettre citrouille, je vais essayer....

  7. yay! I actually took my three rejects out last night, unpicked my hidden threads and rewove them. Now I have a 5 good ones!
    I'm glad that Gian is a sharing sort of guy!

  8. I love the steely gaze! Congrats on figuring out the pumpkin. It's on my to-do list!

  9. Just tell him he got to watch a genuius in action and to take note!

  10. You did a great job on your pumpkin, especially under fierce feline pressure. Gian is so very, very handsome!

  11. That is such a cute little pumpkin. Gian looks so handsome even when he is glaring.

  12. Wonderful comments greeted me this morning! I was so surprised with all your responses - thank you!

    I think Monsieur Gian has forgiven me - I think!

    GK - I ALMOST tatted it in brown! I had that thought as well...

    Let's see if I can tat this again!

  13. I like this cute little pumkin very much. I think Gian only wanted to have it for himself.

  14. LOL!! Gian is adorable even when glaring!! Your little pumpkin is so cute!! You did a wonderful job. I have this pattern on my "to tat list" and I hope mine comes out as nice as yours!

  15. good for you, I know you could do it. Tell Gian that sharing is a good thing.

  16. Gian:

    I hope you got a LONG cord. Otherwise, you need to run off with Her thread and hide it in the litter box.

    The glare is good, though. Excellent technique.

    Your buddy

    PS For some reason, that stupid Sophie wants to be remembered to you.

  17. Yay! I knew if anyone could do it, you could :)

    Is Gian thinking about taking up Celtic knotting?

  18. You've really figured out the weaving thing - just in time for Halloween!

    I think the card companies or cat magazines would LOVE to have that photo! Gian could be thinking SO MANY different things! I can't believe he sits still like that! And those eyes!

  19. I love that pic of Gian!
    Neat little pumpkin, Fox.

  20. Gian, I must congratulate you on your staring skills. My silly servant never feels my gaze, so I am always forced to attack.

  21. Squijum, Incisors to the upper ankle works wonders,
    Your Pal,
