Oscar's Continental Blue Malabrigo Socks

I finished the first of a pair of bed socks for Oscar. I used Malabrigo (kettle-dyed) merino wool in Continental Blue. I knit them using #6 DPNs with Lynn's Colorjoy First Time Toe-Up Sock pattern. I've used this pattern so many times for so many different feet, and yarns and gauges. I like it because its so adaptable and easy. :-} The wool I used is butter-soft... With luck I can get his second sock out of the rest of this skein (with maybe a bit from the second skein) and have enough yarn for me to have a pair of footies to match :-}

That would be a perfect rat sleeping bag.

So what do you think about cat worship as a religon?

My old rat Winifred would have loved it.
I think worshiping cats is a good thing, taken in moderation.
of course our cats know they are gods already.
