Evolution of a Knitty Kitty

Remember Lilly? She's the knitty kitty who never met a ball of yarn she didn't like. Among her other interests are history and anthropology and she discovered that Wikipedia says:

"The earliest known examples of knitting have been found in Egypt and cover a range of items, including complex colorful wool fragments and indigo blue and white cotton stockings, which have been dated between the 11th and 14th centuries CE." What they don't point out is that the Egyptians revered felines, and it's an obvious conclusion to Lilly that the first knitters were cats.


She thought you might enjoy seeing the evolution of a knitty kitty:
Start with a basic cat...



Add some knitting needles and the idea for a sweater...




Let her pick out a ball of yarn in a favorite color...


Then set her free to knit away to her heart's content.


(Just don't set her free in a yarn shop. Whatever you do.)



Need an extra-large tote for all of that yummy yarn you've acquired? This LILLY KNITTING TOTE is now available in my Cafepress online shop. Roomy, it features side panels for extra support and an inside lining for water resistance and simple cleaning. With durable straps (and pockets on the outside and inside), it's a great bag for all your knitting needs.

You make it look so easy. I think that has something to do with a lot of talent.
