A while ago, one of my doctors asked me knit her cat Kashmir, a seal point Siamese, a sweater. I finally found the time to knit said cat sweater. It looks sort of sad and pathetic here, but I hope that kitty gets to strut around in his new duds.
The neck may seem skinny, but it's in ribbing as a mock turtleneck. It has two holes for the front legs, and a nice, rounded out area for the chest. I understand Kashmir is long and skinny, but I'm afraid this is going to look like a boat on him.
I wish I had had my doctor take more measurements of said cat. There are actually some pretty nice patterns out there for custom sweaters for cats, but they involved math.....eh.
So, I settled on a lovely chihuahua sweater pattern that can be found here. It also looks stretched out because it's in garter stitch.
When I dropped off the sweater this morning, the receptionist had to take it out of the bag and got a kick out of it. It was the same gal that when I was getting ready to knit the sweater I called the office and said, "I have a strange request for the doctor. I need her to measure he cat."
The receptionist thought this was very funny. I would have, too, truthfully.
Still, the doctor had what I asked fore when I saw her next. And now Kashmir has a sweater that I hope fits him. I guess I'll know when I see my doctor next.
