Knitted City-Kitty

In 2009 I made a City-Kitty out of old T-shirts. I didn't want to just yarnbomb him somewhere in the city, but waited to find him a special destiny.

Thanks to the involvement of the artist Simone van Olst he is now on display this weekend for the Kunst Route (an art weekend in Leiden, the Netherlands).

Later this year he will go into auction for the national annual Red Cross benefit "3fm Serious Request". The cause for this year is women and than particular mothers in war and conflict zones. A cause that is close to my heart, for the years I have been involved with the womens movement.

It looks great, Ama! That must have taken you a while! And what a perfect cause for the auction!! Hope the cat will make lots of cash for it! :)
