Another cat sweater. Are you surprised?

Yeah. This exists.

My grandma found this for me at an estate sale last week, and I loooooove it. The tough look on the kitties faces makes me giggle. It's completely handmade, and in such perfect condition I have to wonder if maybe someone's granny made of for them and they hated it and never wore it :D

Either way I think it's awesome, and colored in an intarsia chart for all you kitty knitters out there. Ok, it kind of looks like a five year old colored it in, but you get the general idea :)

I love the grumpy kitties! :D I bought one of Cassie's kitty belts after seeing your post the other day, but now I must scour the local thrift shops to find the perfect old cat lady chique sweater!

My favorite part of this whole outfit is definately the pale pink oversized bow. It is just fabulous! You always look so vintage chic.

There is something very 'Log Lady' about this outfit! And I mean that as a compliment as I think she's awesome :-)

I love that you made an intarsia chart! I had saved the pictures of your last kitty sweater because I thought it's intarsia use was just perfect.

This morning you're competing with Cute Overload blog (part of my morning read) and I believe you won for cuteness! Even against the kleptomaniac cat! ;>)

Love your hair bow! It reminds me of the peach ice cream-flavored Cherry Merry Muffin doll I had!

Oh, and the grumpy kitties are too cute.

Sweater Cats are Annoyed with you. LOL

I wish I was talented enough to do intarsia!

Get the hell out of here! Too cute with your latest cat items. I've knit sweaters with stags, reindeer, elephants and gnomes (okay, the gnomes sweater hasn't ever been finished), but not cats yet. I'm seriously inspired!
