The Cat’s Meow

Yes. I knit a cat sweater for my cat…and, she absolutely loves it! The entire time I was knitting up that Manos afghan, Kali just wouldn’t stay away. She’s the kind of cat that likes the attention knitting brings, and so I decided to give it a whirl. I exchanged the one unused ball of Manos for a new Kali-friendly color; a muted celery green #73. I just measured her a bunch and started going crazy. A few hours later, voila, my own little Kali sweater.

“Mom, I’m really done with these pictures… for now. Look at my cute white fluffy chest!”

So, you ask, how is it going?! Well, I put it on her every so often, and she loves to just lay and sleep in it. She can take it off herself, so I don’t feel bad sticking her in it.. She really doesn’t seem to mind, and until that changes, I would call it a success. My Soma, I know, would despise a little kitty sweater, so I’m not knitting one for her.
