My Favorite Sweater

I can finally show you my very favorite sweater (see 6/06, below). I must admit I like my mom's choice of gold over the bright red Miss Coats and Clark's is sporting on the "New Fashion Knits" cover. Have I already told you how much I love this sweater? Two generations and forty years later and still going strong.

Morgan seems too like it too, as cats seem to like most handknit and hand-crocheted things. Why is that, I wonder?

Speaking of which, I finally got my critter package off to Rebekah. Have started another blanket for the Critter Drive (trying to make this one a little larger). Grey Cat continues to sleep in his Snowball Cat Bed, and I actually caught Isis in there with him yesterday. Just goes to show you that if you knit it, they will come.

And once in awhile, they really do sleep.

Cats are extraordinarily cognizant of the magic in the hand made. At least that's what I tell myself when they take my stuff.

Wow now that's a sweater with a history, 40 years. If only it could talk.

Your kittens are always so cute.

It took a minute to read "sweater" and not "cat". Nice history! Sweaters and cats, a natural combo.

I'm still knitting away on my huge (ugly) critter blanket.

Ahhh.. sleeping Isis. I pity the mice in the dreams of a blissfully sleeping cat :o) Very cute pics and nice sweater history!
