Old FO: Cat toy

Several years ago, my SIL and her husband adopted a kitten. For Christmas that year, I knit him a cat toy, and The Sweetie made the "fishing pole", complete with a rope-covered handle. (Sorry, sweetie, I forgot the fancy name for it.) We stuffed it with catnip. (We had to keep it in the fridge to keep OUR cat from playing with it!)

I recently dug through some old email and found photos that they sent of the toy, and it in use.

Pattern: Catnip Mouse by Wendy Johnson
Needles: Not sure anymore.
Yarn: Brunswick Germantown, leftover from Eric's Scarf.

It seemed like a lot of work to do cables for a cat toy, but it was small and fast and cute.

Here's an action shot:

Oh, that's very cute! Love the action shot- it's not just every recipient of a knitted gift who is so wildly enthusiastic about it. *g*

Nice to see you back in the blogosphere :).
