Had More fun working on this. Absolutely delightful. A puzzle, much fun, lots of comments from random strangers watching me work on the loom. A typical conversation went something like this:
“Knitting a sweater for a hairless cat in Scotland – he’s a friend of my Newt.”
“You aren’t knitting, you don’t have needles. And why would a cat have no hair? And your newt has a cat friend? Why would anyone have a pet newt anyway? I’m so confused.”
Hey, you gets your giggles where you can!
So it was an experiment. No actual pattern, I’ve never seen the cat in person, converting measurements from metric, flying blind. It was great. The first attempt was waaay too small. The second effort more reasonable. More of a cat cape than a cat sweater, but a good starting point. Can’t wait to try the next one and hoping that third time’s the charm!
|Me: Pookie, when did you get so FAT?!?!
Newt: I am soooooooooooooo going to pee in your shoes for this indignity!
Cat Daddy: My wife is weird. Really, really weird.
|2nd version a better fit. Prefer the copper colour, though. Newt prefers to be sans sweater, period.||Rib band a bit snug, but worked okay as a pullover style capelet. S’okay, he’s a supercat, so he should have a super hero cape.|
