I’m participating in the 3rd Annual Knitting and Crochet Blog Week. Today is photography challenge day. The idea is to share an interesting photo about something related to knitting or crochet.
I thought long and hard about the best way to honor my craft in photography. Perhaps a dignified still life with balls of wool sitting in for the fruit. An photo of myself eating shrimp fried rice with knitting needles for chopsticks. The photo of my grandpa laughing and holding up my first dishcloth, which I gave him for Christmas in 1989 (it was full of holes).
In the end, I decided to rub a ball of yarn with catnip and give it to my cat to play with. Enjoy.

Oh my goodness! That is adorable, though I hope it isn’t wool you planned to knit with.
Also, our cats look almost the same! Must be a knitter’s thing?
No, definitely not yarn I planned to knit with. It was a ball of scrap cotton. 🙂
I seem to know a lot of doppelgangers for my cat. Do you have any photos of your little guy/gal posted?
Oh yes, Ganymede (a girl) is fairly photogenic, or at least she seems to think she is.
I posted photos of my attempts at cat walking here: http://pansneedles.wordpress.com/2012/04/05/cat-walking/

I may have to try your catnip trick in the future, if for no other reason than total hilarity.
Nice photos. We can’t get our black and white to wear a leash. He’s terrified of it and spends the whole time he’s wearing it slinking around with his belly low to the ground. Our long hair doesn’t mind it though. He associates harness wearing with going outside, which is the essence of awesome.
You had lots of good ideas there, love the idea of you eating with knitting needles. Now for a stupid question, how will you get the smell of catnip of your yummy yarn? Does it come off, wash out? Years ago used real catnip when I had a cat, she loved it; but it made her pretty crazy. Later I heard it was they were on speed and it was bad for them. So, why do they put it in cat toys?
