Cat Lady No. 75...Vintage Purls

Cat Lady Jillie and her helper, Spinner, are maniacs for yarn and knitting. It could be hereditary: Jillie's grandmother knitted 74 pairs of woolen socks during World War II to send to the troops overseas; and Spinner's great-grandmother was sitting on Jillie's lap on the day that Jillie learned how to knit when she was nine years old...

Jillie is currently working on a pair of socks from a vintage pattern that she found on a wonderful website called Vintage Purls.

As much fun as she's having, she can't imagine knitting another 73 pairs...

Just listed in my Etsy shop: This original hand-painted miniature watercolor painting of Jillie and Spinner! Take a look at: It is in ACEO format and these very affordable mini watercolor paintings are adorable when framed and arranged in a grouping!

This design is also available on t-shirts and giftware at
