Cat *nearly* on a knit!

I haven’t posted a cat-on-a-knit picture in a long time!

This one is a super old throwback to when my cat was a teeny little kitten. I made the shawl pictured, Multnomah by Kate Ray, in the summer of 2010 when my cat was only a few months old! That’s why she looks extra tiny. In the photos she can’t be more than 5 months… she’s three years old, now! Whoa.

And, I guess she’s only almost on the knit. How respectful of her! :)

Baby cat! Nearly on a shawl!

She was SO TINY!


Cat on a Knit!

Look! A cat on a knit!

These photos are of the lovely Thorn shawl, designed by Kitman Figueroa and knit in Baah! La Jolla yarn in the Blue Sapphire colourway. I knit the shawl in August of 2011!

The shawl definitely gained feline approval, as you can see :)

Now she's on it!!

Today, before-and-after cat on a knit photos.

Knits laid out to be packed for a trip:

I offer a cat on a knit!

Today, I’m in the middle of managing some deadlines (because I’m dumb and didn’t manage them when I should have…)

And I’ve been doing some secret knitting for a gift project, so I can’t even show you that.

Instead, I offer you a photo of my cat on a knit :)


(I looked through my stash photos the other day, and realized I have kind of a lot of photos of my cat on knits or near stash. So I’ll be posting them now and then!)

The knit above is the Hooray Cardigan (pattern by Veera Valimaki), which I knit in Juniper Moon Farm’s share yarn in the (limited edition) Ojai colourway. I wrote a series of blog posts over at the Juniper Moon blog as I knit the sweater! My cat approved.
