You still have time to put so much on your blog??????!!!!!! The cat is gorgeous - but I'd try to get him in hand luggage - they treat those suitacases with contempt!!!!!

The socks and beanie are adorable - and so good of you to include the pattern - just need to find someone who's expecting now. . . . .
