Cables for Cat

When a friend needed to be hospitalized last August, I met her in the ER around 9:30 PM and stayed with until she finally got a bed at 4 AM. Over the next couple of days, I spent time with her in her room and traipsing along when they took her for some of her tests. I spent the time not traipsing knitting, working on a pair of socks for me, and a scarf for her for Christmas.

This weekend I realized that the scarf has been long done and needed to get shipped out this week to make it to her on time. I thought I'd make a little prezzie for her cat, Cary. Cary's been a little miffed at humans lately because he objects to having his ear mites treated, so I made him a little sock to be stuffed with catnip. Needless to say, the fuschia and teal (really, it's fuschia and teal!) scarf is for Sue, the sock for Cary.

I would like to point out that I have yet to make myself a pair of socks with cables on it, but for a cat, I do cables. Go figure.

Cat Sock Update: My friend reports that Cary has been enjoying the heck out of his catnip-filled sock, surprising my friend, since he has never shown as much interest or spent as much time with a cat toy or catnip filled anything as he has my sock. Good kitty!
