Knitting patterns

First take one dog with long hair, then clip dog.



Take dog hair and spin using a drop spindle into a ball of hair and then knit.....under a fading moon.......




..until you have a puppy.







Introduce puppy to gingers...... and get Kiffer to teach her.....




...to sleep.

Oh yes! Puppies! Luv 'em! Thought of you today while in the pet store. There were two ginger cats up for adoption. One looked like Kiffer and the other was SO beautiful, looked
like...well...Elmo or Maurice. Can't tell the difference. They were both boys. Ooh! I wish I could have adopted them both, but Bailey is a one cat per household, cat. We had two for a while. Finally had to replace all carpeting and curtains!! They both had to be indoor cats because we have too many coyotes where we live. So one got to go back. Very sad, but he was soon adopted again.

Awwwww! How cute!
My mum used to knit things with our cat's fur, but we never had kittens, we must have done something wrong!

He/she really does sleep like Kiffer!

Very nice of Kiffer to be so charitable. I love your buildup. I was thinking how ingenious to knit with dog hair!

Ex-Shammickite said...

So that's where puppies come from! I often wondered....

HotMBC said...

Wow! All mommy can knit is scarfs and ugly hats!
