He is so cute, hopefully he'll get rid of your blues. Love the sweater.

Gorgeous Wallaby. Sweaters scare me!

We all have blue times, just be glad yours isn't spent in a room where a dead rat is slowly decomposing. You'd be reaching for that whiskey bottle, toot sweet!

The Feminist Mafia

What a wonderful wallaby (pun intended)! After seeing these 'round the internets, I'm feeling the pull. And the pull of that smoky club, whiskey, 12-string image is pretty strong too.

futuregirl

You lucky girl! Sad Cat looks perfect on your window sill. :)

Miss T

You have excellent taste in poetry. Langston Hughes is a marvel, and one of my favorites--I chose one of his very short poems for the silent poetry reading the other day.

Haley

love the wallaby. love the moss-stitch edging. make sure you post any hints for your mods on the wonderful wallaby flickr post. thanks!

I know the poem is a little tragic, but I couldn't help but chuckle at "I wonder if
One bullet would do?
Hard as my head is,
It would probably take two."

Can't wait to hear about this mysterious figure!

I loved teaching Langston Hughes to my students. I always used "Madam and Rent Man" to teach correct use of quotation marks.

Hope the blues don't keep you down for long.

Robin

I don't think those are sad eyes. They look like bedroom eyes to me!

Carol

Wow! Yours is, a Wonderful Wallaby! What a cute kitty! Looks like another fun place to read. Glad you're feeling better, sometimes, the letting go does good.

Hillary

When I saw your last Wallaby, I had to get the pattern immediately! Too cute! Of course, had to get yarn for my 2 boys and my niece, so I think I'll be spending February a-Wallabying!

Nora

Doesn't the Biscuit want to play with Sad Cat?

Oh, and I love his blue hoodie - such a cool kid you have there J. x

Kristy

I'm happy things are looking up. I've always found that a cat (real or stuffed) is quite useful for needed cheer.

Sarah

Sad Cat is precious.

Also, where would one find this Wallaby pattern? Looks like just the thing for one of my nieces.

Belinda

Another great wallaby. I finally bit the bullet and order a copy. Hopefully, it doesn't take too long to reach down under.

Cathi

Lurve Peace Fleece.

Fine, I'll buy the goddamned pattern. :)

Carrie

I meant to tell you that I totally went and bought the Wonderful Wallaby pattern after seeing your Flickr photos of the red one. It's such a great pattern! It'll be my first sweater for my nephew. You're such a good (bad?) influence.

amisha

i love that wallaby... when i get off this knitting-from-stash thing sometime in the next decade... oh peace fleece.
i love your poem choice too :)

mandy

There's nothing like a droopy eyed sad cat to lift the spirits!

Wallabeeeee! Nice. Very nice. I was at the LYS today and my Jerry helped me pick out some navy blue and lime green wool. There is talk of a dinosaur Wallaby. Not sure how it will all come together, but I'm optimistic!

Lola

I started my Wallaby. After a rocky start (my own issues), I'm almost to the grafting of the pocket to the sweater.

Next one with the moss stitch edge and Peace Fleece. You had me at "bloom". At bloom...

Awwww...Sad Cat. Love him. Love the Wallaby too. And Langston Hughes.

So much love, so little time.

diana

Love the Wallaby for the Biscuit!

nova

It's good when something sad makes you happy, I lurv Sad Cat as well! I really like your newest iteration of the Wallaby, I will definitely be knitting one for LS. Thanks for the poem too. I don't really spend much time reading poetry of late and it's nice to have the reminder of its significance.
