Knitting with cat fur?

If you recall my entries about my kitty helper(s), you’ll know I have cats. Three of them. And do they ever shed. There are days I wonder how they still have fur, what with how much comes off when we pet or brush them.

Naturally, being who I am, I decided to see if you can use that fur to make yarn out of. Sure enough, I’ve found examples of people who do.

It’s actually kind of a cool idea, when you look at it from the perspective of using whatever you make from the yarn as a keep sake of a departed pet.
…and I just plain like this promo. It really shows the dilemma of cat owners everywhere in a nicely dramatic fashion. I’m tempted to look that book up!
