"I wish I had a hamster"

Six little words and a thought... never spoken or even imagined until today.

I'd want to give him right back!

But today, I have a finished Hamster Cozy and no model. I tried it on a TP tube, but... No. I went in search and came up with bookend -- a mouse holding the books up -- but he's a mouse. Mice are much smaller than hamsters, and he was drowning in the little sweater. I don't have many figurine-type things.

One day, at a price too low to resist, and because it might come in handy as a gift for a certain pig-lover, I bought this:


A wooden pig-shaped toothpick holder. I think. It could be used for serving hors d'oeuvres -- li'l porkies? -- but there aren't that many holes and it would require constant refilling.

Today, it works fabulously as a hamster sweater model.

Mack is very lucky to have someone as creative (and crazy) as you are for his Aunt! DARLING!

That is so cute and hilarious at the same time.

That is one warm pig. Cute sweater! Li'l Mr. Hamster will be sooo pleased :-)


I really want to see the hamster in it too. Very cute!


Who's going to put it on the real live hamster.
I want a video of that!


Seriously, this hamster sweater is awesome. I really hope you get to photograph your nephew's hamster wearing it. Please.


What a lucky hamster! I knew you could do it in style. Love it.
