My Crazy membership is paid for the YEAR!

Here's the Porch Princess sweater, y'all, modeled by Fee herself:

Looking a bit silly, yet warm

She seems to like wearing it. On my next incarnation I'll make the neck a bit longer and bigger around (I knitted the ribbing flat and then didn't seam it up, hence the edging. It makes her look a little Vegas because she's so fluffy.) The light wasn't very good outside so the photos are blurry. (Sorry. But it's a cat sweater!) It's very easy to get on her, and absurdly easy to get off - just pull the back over her head and she walks right out of it.

So cute! Too bad my cats would attack me if I tried to put them in one of those.

Honestly - easy to get on her? I can just imagine if I tried to put one on Gracie...it would be ripped to shreds before it ever had a chance (anything that dangles in front of her face, especially yarn related, is a toy to her). Very cute though. Cool dye job too!

My late cat, Buttercup (seems she'd be a gentle soul with a name like that, eh? NOT! :)) would have destroyed me and the sweater before she would have ever let it be put on her! But, hey, it looks great and your cat apparently doesn't mind wearing it... and that's cool!

OH MY Goodness! Well, normally I don't appreciate pet clothing too much, but this is different as I know she needs it. Just adorable. Make her a black one too. Somehow I think that girl would look awesome in black or olive green. Those EYES, you know. :-)
