What a lovely idea with Biko's paw print.

Awww, Biko! That's the same sort of urn my Simba is in, same shape, but his is white ceramic with two little paw prints on top.

That paw print is lovely (the socks are nice too, but the paw breaks my heart a little).

I love the paw print but I would have to put it away for awhile before I could hold it and keep it close by.
The sock stripes are gorgeous, what yarn is that?

Oh the paw print is such a lovely thing. Harki came home yesterday too. It does make me feel a little less sad to share the journey with you.
Gorgeous stripes!!!

Still sending you lots of virtual hugs.

I'm entranced by your stripes too! It looks like wonderful yarn.

I love the paw print momento of Biko..... but it's too hard to see our beloved pets reduced to a jar. I can't bear to have Mr. Puffy's out and have stuck it in a drawer.

Love the stripes, forgive my ignorance, are you stripping them or is it the yarn? I'm loving it either way.

And I will have to say that the pawprint is the nicest rememberence...thank you for sharing.
