We're thinking that a lot of our customers must love cats because everyone seems to want a copy of the new Knit Your Own Cat book! It's got 16 different cats to knit.
Emily has a British Blue Short Hair at home named Phineas, and when we received the Knit Your Own Cat book, Emily dove right in and picked out some yarns that would look just like Phineas. Here's the real Phineas:
|"You know you love me, mom."|
|"Beef jerky. Pleeeaaase!"|
And here's our shop Phineas:
|"Treats? Treats? Did I hear someone say 'treats'?"|
To make our shop Phineas kitties, Emily used BrownSheep Nature Spun Sport yarn and Rowan Kidsilk Haze yarn held double stranded and some of her favorite double pointed needles. I love the curled up sleeping pose! Knitted cats are the best - you don't ever have to chase them out of your knitting or crocheting because they are perfectly behaved.
Don't worry, if you are a knitter who prefers dogs over cats you can see we have another book just for you! Knit Your Own Dog is also available featuring 25 different breeds that you can knit.
