Totally Toasty Textiles Thursday

You have got to see this to believe it, Loyal Readers. Just look at this little jumper for Seppo. It is hand knitted by a most talented friend and colleague of Äiti's. Boy does she know some smart people. This genius did this just from making her own pattern from Seppo's favourite fleecy top and then knitting it.
But that's not the best of it. Not only did she make the pattern, she made the wool. Here is some of the raw material:
Yes, that is what you think it is! It is a pile of fur from myself and Stran. Yes, this jumper is made from OUR FUR. The darker yarn is from Ruska and Lewis. The fur was blended with lambswool and knitted. 
 Seppo has a real cat fur jacket!  It is perfect for him - and so warm.
We all had a sniff of it, and we approve! Even Aila-sisko.
And Seppo is very proudly at the centre of everything here, eating up the dry food that fell from the skies.
We want to thank Äiti's colleague most sincerely, and I am so proud of our wonderful Finnish handicrafts and skills. Äiti is in awe of them too!

We are in awe, also! It's splendid! Seppo looks great in it, too.

We just knew Mommy should have been keeping all that extra cat hair for something. MOL!

Happy Thursday!

That is the sweetest little coat ever! He looks adorable in it! Even I, the King of Snark, can think of nuffing snarky to say today. And THAT'S a miracle!

Loistavaa! Nyt Seppo kantaa mukanaan teidän tuoksuanne ja om samalla mukavan lämpöinen uudessa takissaan.

OMC, I can't think of ANYTHING more awesome than a cat fur jacket for Seppo made from the fur of some of his family! That is the coolest thing ever - and Äiti's colleague is so very talented!

That is such a lovely idea, and Seppo looks so cosy in it. Aiti's friend is very talented.

What a great sweater for Seppo! A perfect fit and coordinating color! We think using the kitty fur in it is really sweet, too :)
