A sweater for a cat
I've been kinda in a knitting slump so I decided to do something fast and cute. Why not a cat's sweater?

Of course Gideon was not happy with my choice...he is a pretty large cat so it took more time than I thought and then when I did finish it tonight he was not happy with it. He wouldn't even look at me or have anything to do with me.

I used Caron Simply Soft Eco and size 8 needles...along with this pattern.

Pictures: Him trying it on half asleep...not looking at me...finally looking at me but not happy (he is still pouting at me )

How in the world did you get that on him!? He looks very handsome in his sweater!
I'm trying to picture my fat cat Dobby in a sweater, and I don't think that'll ever happen!
