Knit Anti Cat Towel

The kittehs are onto me…this one took a few what with working on my neckwarmer (pattern can be found at http://weerobin.wordpress.com/2010/09/18/pomona-neckwarmer/) and chasing kittehs away from yarn, needles, my hands, my feet….yeah. They are tricksy! And far too smart 😛

So here is Anti Cat Towel #2-the knit version.

Beware! Knitting around kitties can be hazardous to a towel’s health.
