Ancien Chat Tricotin



Vintage Cat Spoolknitter

I wonder how many catlovers there are who are
also collectors of knitting spools?
I wonder if any of you have one of these in your
I would love to know more about them, so if anyone
has some information about these charming knitters,
I would love to hear from you!

What I do know is, I believe they are quite rare.
In my 10 years of collecting, I have only seen another
four cats and they originate from France.
There is also a bird and a duck version. They (cats)
are usually found missing their ears, at least
those that I have seen. I have added these
little felt ears to the inset above his eyes.
I think he looks wonderful!
