This is my cat, Ernie, enjoying a snooze on his knitted cat blanket.

He likes to wrap his paw round his eyes. 

I knitted the blanket and now it sits on the window ledge in front of my desk where I type at my computer.

Ernie loves to be in whatever room I am in and sit near me.  Before I put his cat blanket on the window ledge, he would lie across my hands on the keyboard, and I would have to try and type with him lolling over my hands.  Even when I typed he refused to budge.  Typing while wearing a fat, cat glove isn't easy. 

So, I made him a cat blanket, hoping he might like it.

Like it?

He hasn't shifted off it in several days.  He gets to watch the birds, watch the computer screen, watch me and then sleep.  All without having to budge. 

Even my cats are loving me being creative! 

I hope your day is as relaxing as Ernie's.

P.S.  There's still time to enter my giveaway.  Go here !   I'll draw the winner on the 28th February.

    Jo xx

  3. Hi Steve, thank you for your kind invitation. Hope you're haivng a great day.

    Hi Susan, Ernie has turned round on his blanket and gone back to sleep. It is a wonderful life! xx

    Hi Jo, thank you! I know I'm a bit biased but I think Ernie has a lovely face too. Em x (I'm glad you like the blanket. )

  4. Ernie is so cute, Em !
    You can see he really loves that blanket you've made !
    Nice weekend,

  5. It's good to know your cat can multi-task! My cat lays on my hands too, when I type, but she is very small. It still gives me cramp in my wrist though!

  6. Ah, he is very cute and certainly looks cosy. Cats have a way of making a bed out of anything, don't they? That blanket looks lovely; I think it is fair to say that Ernie sleeps like a king :)
    P.S. I do wonder about Steve Finnell, does he pick people he thinks need saving or is it totally random?

  7. Adorable! I have a tabby cat who likes to do the same as Ernie on my keyboard. I'm next to a window so may just have to try this trick. I do have 3 cats so hope there aren't any squables over who gets the blanket ;o) x

  8. Ernie is so adorable, he looks rather comfy!

  9. He is a cutie! It does look very comfortable :) x

  10. Ernie looks adorable and very content on his blanket. I need to knit my little Meena a new one since her baby blanket I made her is completely felted since she suckled on it when she was a kitten. It's so haggard looking it's funny ;)
    Ahhhh the life these furry little creatures lead.

  11. Ernie is Very Handsome! I just love it when they wrap their paws over their eyes, its so cute, I will have to get knitting,,
