Yarn Along with the Owl and the Pussycat.

The Owl and the PussycatJoining Ginny and friends for Yarn Along is my diorama of The Owl and The Pussycat. No it isn’t a “setup” just for the post, I really was making this and reading that.  It is being made for a friend of mine for reasons I am not allowed to go into. Let me say it is a celebratory gift. Congratulations Debra!

Both critters are my own designs. The Owl being inspired by a broach I purchased from WinterOwls and is knitted with buttons added to help it see. The Pussycat is an amigurumi critter who is mainly crochet and looks a bit like she is thinking “are we there yet?”  According to the poem ” they sailed away for a year and a day”  My goodness! Together in a small boat for 366 days!! I guess they would have ironed all their issues out in that time and no doubt their marriage, which was performed  by a Turkey on a hill, would have been “smooth sailing”.  Pussycat’s eyes were inspired by my favorite cat Mr Bowie and I know the cat is a girl because I reread the poem to make sure. I have ATTD which is “attention to tiny detail” so you can be sure there will be both money and honey when I finish and present the diorama to my friend. A footnote: my son made the “beautiful pea green boat” because he loves Debra almost as much as me.

I am having a lot of fun with these Wednesday posts and don’t forget to check out the other links that accompany this. Click on the Yarn Along logo on my side bar and you can join in any Wednesday your self  if you like.  Don’t forget to let me know if you do. Keep on creating!

  1. That’s a fine work of art! I’m very honored that Mr. Bowie is your favorite cat…
    PS: Bowie says “Meow!”


  2. Thank you evilsquirrel they were such fun to make. I really am keen to make an amigurumi squirrel when I can get some time. I thought those squirrel picnic ones were very clever you re blogged.


  3. Thank you psquirrel, now how can I work a squirrel into the story? Or perhaps a Kangaroo or two. Whoops the boat will become an Ark if I don’t restrain myself!


  4. Your owl and your pussy cat are SO DIVINE. I completely adore their expressions – serious and yet giggle-worthy in exactly the same moment (which is somehow just as I feel a creature ought to look when setting out with a friend in a pea green boat…). Just beautiful.


  5. Q – I love this! Will be visiting the grandkids next month and think I need to make this and buy the book for the youngest!


talk to me people!
