Strayin'

Are you looking for a fun and interesting shawl to knit? Want to win a gift certificate for the shop? Have I got a KAL for you!

A few months back, I mentioned the Stray Cat KAL over at the Anima Knitting Club. The KAL is for Kristina Vilimaite's beautiful Stray Cat shawl pattern. The deadline to complete the shawl has been extended to April 21!
But it's not an ordinary KAL - it's got a bit of a twist! To win a prize, you have to manipulate your finished shawl into the shape of a cat and take pictures! Sound crazy? It's not - check this out!

How cool is that? Take a look at the completed cat shawls for more ideas.

All the details are in the group, but there are two $35 Wandering Cat Yarn gift certificates up for grabs!

I'm knitting my version in Slinky Cat  - using Aqua and Peacock. And so far I'm loving it. I've never knit a shawl with this construction. The increases are so cleverly hidden. It's not a hard pattern either - it's something a fairly newbie lace knitter could tackle.

So why not join us? I'd be making good progress...
 ... if it wasn't for a certain someone. Excuse me while I go attempt an extraction.

This is a very clever little contest. I'm quite interested in seeing all the finished "cat" pictures. I hope you'll post a link to that at the end :)

Ooooh, I like the aqua and peacock combination!

That KAL looks like tons of fun. But darn that yarn diet!
