We got Barney as a Winter Solstice surprise for Edie when she was just wee. Look at how cute and little he used to be! I feel kind of bad I was slow to bond with him I think due to my heartbreak of losing my soul cat a few years prior (Miss Kitty! at almost 19) but he squeezed his super poofy self into my heart over the years. He really is the coolest cat around.
Sigh. Look how cute and little he use to be! Now look at him...
HONK! He's the epitomy of the gentle giant though ~ a sweet big boy. He's one of those dog/cats. He let's the kids awkwardly lug him from their bed to his special pink chair, follows us around wherever we go outside, asks to be let out to go pee (no litter box - yay!) and knows that I'm the alpha alpha around these parts (just takes a raise of my right eyebrow (I call it my "Rock" look) and he jumps off the couch. Pronto. Good boy.).
So when Sally Feller approached me about taking part in her Knit Your Own Cat book blog tour the first thought that entered my head was whoa, Barney would take up a lot of skeins. Lucky for me, Sally gifted me a copy of her book that helps fund the Barney yarn and was also kind enough to include a copy of the book to give to one of my readers. That could be you! Just leave a comment below saying what critter you wish you could knit up if you could. For example, I wish I could knit a Dexter cow due to my love for all things Miss Daisy. See? Easy! By the way, Sally also wrote a book called Knit Your Own Dog that may be of some of fun to those of you who wish you could knit up your pooch and/or are obssessed with weiner dogs like me.
Leave a comment and I'll draw a name on Sunday. Good luck!
I drew a random number from Random Number Generator and the winner is number 6 - Lisa! I'll email you pronto to get you your mailing address. Have fun with this! :)
