A Place to Sleep: Jumper 15

Snuffles has a blanket in the kitchen.
Snuffles has a box in the hall.
Snuffles can sleep on the sagging old sofa,
tightly curled up like a ball.

No Cats allowed in the knitting.
No cats sleeping on the bed.
Take Snuffles out of the laundry bag
and put him somewhere else instead.

The blanket is too cold and soggy
from the morning’s shower of rain
The sofa’s too full of teenager
The box is far too plain.

Snuffles finds himself a quiet corner
Snuffles seeks a smell he loves the best:
Snuffles takes his owner’s favourite jumper
to make himself a comfy nest.

What will she say if she sees him?
Perhaps it’s better not to tell.
I didn’t know, it’s not the knitting or the bed.
Is a jumper out of bounds as well?

This jumper was brought to you by Hannah Sanguinetti, working with: Malabrigo Worsted yarn in ‘Sealing Wax’, 4mm double-pointed needles, paper collage, ink and pencil.

I am lucky enough to have a fantastic yarn shop on my road, Be Inspired Fibres, and this acts as my extended yarn stash. All of my yarn for this project is sourced from this beautiful shop. For those of you who don’t have a yarn shop near by, why don’t you come to the Edinburgh Yarn Festival this March? There is more yarn than you can possibly imagine, and you could pop in to Red Box and take a look at my red jumpers too.

You can go and see these jumpers as of TODAY on display as table-number bottles in Red Box Coffee, 2-6 Spottiswoode Rd, Edinburgh EH9 1BQ.
