There's Something About Baggy

I don't have much knitting to show ~ yeah, yeah, what's new?

A Bib O' Love from Mason-Dixon.

And a receiving blanket trimmed in crochet for the girl who is having a baby at work. i hope she doesn't have the baby AT work This is why I work here and she's invested some time showing me the ropes.

I'll also get her diapers. She's going to need them. A lot of them. For a long time. For all my friends over 40, this is why we have biological clocks. There are other reasons too, but let's not go there right now.

This is the Bag Boy as I now call him. Linus is 12 and never quite got what the catnip thing was all about. I wasted more money on catnip toys that went unused for years. ok, so it takes time to train humans We found this "bag" in our local PetCo wherein we ALMOST came home with a conure. I swear, he is only 3 months old and he already plays peek-a-boo and plays dead! I flipped for the little guy, but back to the Bag Boy. The bag is all fabric with a furry rim that bends to hold it open and it's very crispy. It also, unbeknown st to me is laced with catnip.

Linus always loved bags that's THE reason I bought it.

Hello bagggg.

I like this... what's tha....

It crunches and there's something about this bag nomnomnomnomnomnom
This bag makes me tired.

4 Days later...

After I knitted his little a$$ a Kitty Pi Bed, that he doesn't use. Should have washed it in catnip.
Tomorrow, toys!

Oh my goodness, the cat pics are too cute.

Robin said...

Such cute pictures! I especially love the 2nd to last one!

Kim in Oregon said...

Trying to think of a way to embed catnip in felted kitty bed.

Funny, it doesn't affect our little kitties one bit.

I love the bib and blanket, they are so pretty. Your work place sounds like a sweet environment. I am amazed at all the kitty/bag gymnastics. My Chanel hated her handknit sweater, little may they appreciate our labors of love.

Opal said...

Did you know they make catnip spray? You might want to try using that on the Pi Bed. It can't hurt to try. :)

Sonya said...

Awwww, bag + kitty = love affair. Pretty bib and blankey!

Jenni said...

My cat never got the catnip thing either

Debi said...

I bought the same bag for Pumpkin -- he ignored it completely, catnip and all :(

Lynn said...

cute bib! I've never made one but they are adorable!

and cats, never try to figure them out!! LOL

She sure is strange! said...

Oh now that cracks me up!! My kitties love valerian root so you might try rubbing the kitty pi with a broken capsule of that. I'll warn you that it smells like nasty gym socks though.

Love the baby love, too sweet!
