Ok, well I wanted to share with all of you "Ginger". She is the cat Nerm knitted for me. I know you probably can't experience her in all her glory through these pictures but let me tell you, she really is wonderful.
I found and bought the pattern and begged mom to make her for me. I can knit but only in a straight line, haha. My mom is obviously a very skilled knitter. I have since then found other projects I wanted her to knit but Ginger was not so easy, even for the most experienced knitter so I don't think she is very anxious. Nerm said that there would be no more projects as complicated as Ginger. We laugh about it all the time though and how tricky Ginger turned out to be. She is super soft and feels almost like a baby blanket, which makes it great to love her but not so great when you have to use that kind of fine yarn. No one can believe that she is knitted and handmade because she really does look like an animal you would buy at a store.
Anyway, she is my very favorite and I keep her on top of the bed in my guest bedroom so she stays put. I can't wait to pass her on to my own kids, whenever I should have some. Thanks Nerm! --Kitty
