Do you think it's an odd coincidence that I am knitting with yarn that matches my cats?

I started the "Multidirectional Comfort" sweater from the March 2008 Creative Knitting, but have made so many adjustments to the pattern that I feel that I can re-name it at this point. Besides, what kind of name is "Multidirectional Comfort"?

Henceforth, the sweater shall be named Agouti. Why? Cats with the agouti gene show tabby markings. As it turns out, my little house kitties share this gene with their wild and distant cousins. I think it's the perfect name for this sweater.



Freaky, eh? It's kitty camo!

It would be a real coincidence/ odd if you started to get a similar striping on your body. I can't wait to see what changes you've made to the sweater!

I think that it is most important to coordinate with ones pets. It hide the hair!!!

BTW I love the colorways>

Kitty has obviously recognized it as a relative. Now, when you wear it you really will look like your pet. Cool colors though, I heart brown.
