Yay! Knitting in my future again

Sometime yesterday during one of our discussions about Scooter, Keith asked if I thought I could make Scoots some cotton knitted bandage thingies. Hell yeah I can! So I've going to rummage through my stash of Sugar & Cream and Peaches & Creme to see what I can find. I figured just a simple garter stitch strip long enough for a velcro closure so he can't pull if off.

Honestly, except for the dripping wound, he seems to feel okay. In fact, I need to defrost his liver and ply him with more moist food. I'm pretty sure that what that sweet, cute look he gave me meant.

At the risk of sounding creepy and lugubrious, you could use the instructions for the leprosy bandages: http://leprosybandages.blogspot.com/2008/06/updated-instructions-for-making-leprosy.html
Condensed version: No. 10 mercerized crochet cotton (South Maid, Aunt Lydia's, etc.), size 2 or 3 (US) needles. CO 24-28 sts, knit in garter st till it's as long as you want.

The crochet cotton is finer, and may be better for cat. And of course you can throw it in hot, hot water for washing.
