Halloween TBT + Cat Hats

Henry's Halloween tree.
Halloween Tree by Henry, May 2011

Much like Henry’s Halloween tree from May 2011 (yes, of all the trees he could have drawn for this spring assignment, he chose a Halloween tree), which has “bin here sense the last Second,” I give you Jeff and Eevee in their Halloween hats. These only count as throwbacks for throwback Thursday in the way that any photograph is a throwback to a few seconds (or minutes, hours, days, years) ago. Happy Thursday!


Jeff's mostly ready for Halloween - we just need a rainbow somewhere.

I think I broke Eevee (though she wriggled out of this a few seconds later). It's supposed to be a shark fin but looks more like a 3rd ear (and an elf ear, at that) - I may rip it out & try again. But for now, cue the Jaws music anyway.
Eevee, shark (or extra special cat with a third ear that looks borrowed from an elf – I may re-knit the shark fin)

  1. You’re lucky the kitties let you put on their hats. Mine would NOT be happy. lol And I am so sentimental about my kids’ artwork – I kept all the pages like this from when they started school and I can’t bear to get rid of it, even though it’s really starting to mount up and take alot of space.

    1. Well, I survived the night so the cats forgave me. I’m working on hats for the dogs now; they will probably keep the hats on longer than the cats. I love the kids artwork too; I’ve kept some of the extra special pieces, like this one, and have taken pictures of others along with some of their big school projects.

    I NEED one of these!!! Proper, proper laughing so I can barely type. Brilliant. You are an official genius.

    1. Incentive to knit! And they were both relatively easy to make!

        I am about to see if I can find a pattern to match my skill level!

        1. I used this free (after registering) pattern and improvised the shark fin/elf ear and Jeff’s horn. The spikes could easily be adapted to be one big spike/fin, which is maybe what I should’ve done instead of getting all fancy and making one that could be stuffed. It’s all garter stitch so if you can knit and increase & decrease, you can make it. 🙂

            I can!! Will go check it out. Thanks so much.

  3. The shark fins are adorable. And yes, elf ear or not, I am always surprised to see (somewhat) compliant cats 🙂

  4. Hahaha!
    This is so great. We don’t have cats at the moment but I remember putting my childhood cat on a special cat leash- it didn’t end well.
    Your cats must be very tolerant.

    1. They’re not tolerant at all; both hats were on for less than a minute, I just had the camera ready & took lots of shots! 😀

      1. Hahaha!! Geez I wish I could see footage of that.

  5. The cat hats are unbelievably cute! ♥♥♥

    1. Thank you! I had fun with them!
