Sara Thomas likes cats a lot.
A self-proclaimed cat lady who studied fashion design in London, Sara, 30, of Nashville, Tennessee started Scooter Knits, an Etsy shop featuring handknit hats for cats in 2009.
The hats were a hit and six years later, Sara is still knitting like the wind for feline friends and their owners around the globe. This week is an exciting one for Sara, whose first book, “Cats in Hats: 30 Knit and Crochet Hat Patterns for Your Kitty” will be hitting local bookstores.
Tune in to this episode of the CraftSanity Podcast, to hear the story of how Sara got inspired to create knitted and crocheted hats for cats and how her book inspired me to awkwardly embrace my inner cat lady and knit hats for my cat, Justine, while interviewing fellow airline passengers on the way back from my recent trip to New York.
If you’re a cat lady who knits, this show is definitely for you. And if you happen to think cat ladies who knit are ridiculous, this show will likely entertain you even more.
So grab a project and some tea and settle in for an unconventional episode of the CraftSanity Podcast. And be sure to stop back on Tuesday to view a photo gallery of more cats with hats – including Justine the CraftSanity cat and her friend Fern. There will also be a chance to win a copy of Sara’s book and some other fun stuff, so please stop back to have a look.
I discovered ACS when I was looking for a local source for flour sack tea towels to use for my printmaking and embroidery projects. I’m happy to be supporting a West Michigan-based company with my business and ACS is graciously sponsoring the CraftSanity Podcast.
Local West Michigan listeners can shop ACS products at the Red Door, 6837 Lake Michigan Dr, in Allendale Charter Township. It’s the ACS outlet and also a pickup location for locals who want to order flour sack tea towels and other goods and skip the shipping costs. Visit Red door for a variety of tea towels and other home goods.
