By the pricking of my thumbs
something wicked this way comes.

And guess what? It's YOU, elegantly wrapped in our lacey black ruffle scarf.
A cascade of dark lace announces your entrance and proclaims that you're no one to be trifled with. Wear it to the theater, the finest restaurant in town, or on that all important third date. After all, if you're going to be a drama queen, shouldn't you look the part?


The Black Ruffled Scarf is hand knit by me in my smoke free, pet friendly studio from imported mesh yarn. As always, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to a no kill animal shelter or Heifer International in honor of the Late, Great Fat Joey.

Do you drink Cosmopolitans instead of beer? Prefer pedicures to mountain biking? Never leave the house without at least 3 lipsticks? Me too - and that's why I just had to knit this gorgeous, girly scarf. It's all of our favorite things - soft, ruffly, pink and frothy....dive right in and snuggle up to proclaim "I enjoy being a girl!"

This sweet accessory is handknit in my smoke free, pet friendly studio from 100% imported mesh yarn. Hand wash cold and lay flat to dry. But be careful! If you wear this scarf, men might start opening doors, sending you drinks and kissing your hand - just be prepared!

As always, a portion of the proceeds from the ruffly pink scarf will go to a no kill animal shelter or Heifer International, in honor of the Late, Great Fat Joey.

Irresistable

Need a snuggle bunny? Sweet Winnie needs YOU!
Meet Winnie!
Winnie is a 3-4 month old, 2 pound kitten with multiple talents:

1. A Companion:
Winnie is super affectionate and will gladly nap in your lap. She also enjoys being carried around like a baby, perching on your shoulder like a ...parrot, and giving kisses.

2. An Alarm Clock:
Winnie has a very unique meow which draws attention from all of her adoring fans. She uses her voice when she is hungry or wants some attention.

3. A Dog-Occupier:
Winnie LOVES dogs (at least those who also love her)! She acts like one of the gang when her doggie foster siblings are around, chases them around and enjoys bath time.

4. *Most Importantly* A Fun, Adorable, Young Kitten
Winnie is guaranteed to provide you hours of laughter and affection. She will grow into a great companion cat and family member. Like all young kittens, Winnie will need daily exercise and some training to know that she shouldn't use her claws and teeth to play (nothing a little spray bottle of water can't correct).

Read more about Winnie here:

Winnie was surrendered to the ACCT Philly shelter along with her brother and sister because their owner couldn't care for them any longer. Her brother and sister were lucky enough to be adopted, but because Winnie was the runt she had to be placed in foster care until she was big enough to be spayed. Winnie is still quite small for her age, but is healthy and happy! She likely won't ever be a large cat but will make a great family pet. Winnie currently lives with 2 other adult cats and 3 dogs. She gets along great with everyone! She is a social girl who is currently learning how to play appropriately. Winnie is already spayed, microchipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. Winnie is also FeLV & FiV negative. Her adoption fee is just $75! Interested in adopting her? Contact her foster mom by emailing erin.acctpenpals@gmail.com for more information!

Wanna help these lovable innocents? Me too. You can "like" the Philly Urgents page on Facebook and repost p...hotos and bios of their babies. I figure that it's a numbers game - the more people that hear their stories, the better chance they have of getting out. And it only takes a few clicks of your mouse to spread the word and maybe save a life. Thanks guys. Love and doggie kisses to one and all.

Shameless Self Promotion

Well, really now, folks, what is the purpose of a blog if you can't shamelessly promote your own enterprises? So here we go...I know all ten of my readers have been waiting for this: here are the latest additions to my Etsy shop - avaliable in time for Mother's Day. Hooray! All modesty aside, I'm really pleased with the way they've turned out. And really, can you ever have too many scarves? Of COURSE not!





Feminine, girly, sophisticated and luscious, this hand knit beauty is the perfect way to spoil a loved one. The soft ruffles feel positively decadent when you put it on and it can turn an ordinary coat into a "WOW" outfit. Because I believe in decadence, this ruffled scarf is extra long and frilly. I mean, if a little of something is good, why not a lot? This imported Italian yarn is what you would get if you could knit with giggles, the laughter of babies or an old, dear friend. Are you an animal lover? Because, as always, a portion of the proceeds from the ruffled scarf goes to Heifer International, or a no kill animal shelter, in honor of the Late, Great Fat Joey.

All of my items are made in a smoke free, pet friendly studio.

As always, a portion of the proceeds from the sale will go to a no-kill animal shelter in Philadelphia, in honor of the Late, Great Fat Joey. You can look fabulous and help your furry friends. Everybody wins!

Light Yellow Banana Silk Scarf







The best of fashion and Spring combine in this hand knit, light weight accessory. The Daffodil Scarf is made from 100% banana silk, hand spun in Peru and hand knit by me in exotic Newark Delaware, which make it a truly global treasure.

The Daffodil Scarf makes a thoughtful present for a favorite Aunt, girlfriend or bridesmaid and is light enough to wear in the Spring. (you can always say that you made it yourself - we'll never tell!) All Fat Joey Knitwear scarves are made in my smoke free, pet friendly studio.

Save This Dog!

PRINGLES A15622714 Why hello everyone! I’m so glad I have your attention! I am Pringles (A15622714) your favorite potato chip! Oh, excuse me, I mean dog! I am your favorite dog! I am a sweet sassy 1-2 year old girl currently living at ACCT waiting for my forever family. I was found as a stray by a great lady who runs a kittie rescue. She really wanted to take me home because I was so sweet, but unfortunately I probably shouldn’t live with cats. I am a serious wiggle-butt. I love everyone! When I see someone coming towards me I wiggle wiggle wiggle! I love getting pets! I am a pretty energetic young lady and I need someone ready to be energetic with me! I am really really smart! Like super-smart! I learned to roll over in about 10 minutes. I know sit, down, and touch too. I would be an awesome agility dog because I am really smart and really eager to please! I have done great in all my dog meets here at the shelter. I have kind of a silly play style. I play sort of like a boxer, using my front paws a lot. I would need to live with a dog who either had my same play style or was pretty tolerant of me playing that way. As I said, cats are way too interesting for them to like living with me! Since I’m such a playful girl, I probably shouldn’t live with infants or toddlers, but older kids who don’t mind my playfulness would probably love me! If you are interested in adopting or fostering me, please contact my pen pal at ashearin@vet.upenn.edu. Thanks so much for reading about me! http://farm7.staticflickr.com/​6098/​6856721670_eec614c188_z.jpg http://farm7.staticflickr.com/​6102/​7002836497_47519beb60_z.jpg http://farm8.staticflickr.com/​7236/​6856721776_af350cc013_z.jpg This is just one of the many wonderful dogs in urgent need of adoption, foster care, or rescue at Philadelphia's animal control shelter, ACCT. You can stop down and meet them, and after filling out an application with shelter staff, interact with them 365 days a year at the shelter- 111 W. Hunting Park Avenue in Philadelphia. Please checkwww.acctphilly.org for hours. Come in and take home a forever friend today! To check the status of an animal, call 267-385-3800, email acctpetfinder@gmail.com, or send us a message!

Urgent Dogs M-Z at the shelter NOW PRINGLES A15622714 Hi I’m Pringles, no, not those tasty potato chips, I’m a dog, I’m a dog, silly. I’m an adult terrier/pit mix who weighs about 47 lbs. I have a shiny black and white coat and a really cute face with semi erect ears and a white patch on my nose. I’m sort of a high energy gal and I love to play and jump around. Now, I know this is silly behavior and I need to stop jumping up, so the nice people here are working with me on that. I know I can do better and get the hang of it. I did pretty good on my evaluations, handling, dog meets and cat meets. I did show a little interest in cats, so if you have any at home, I should be re-tested to make sure that we are okay together. I did well on food test despite the fact that I was pretty hungry being a stray from the streets of Philadelphia. Due to my energy level, I probably shouldn't live with small children and I should meet all of your children under 12 years of age, as well as your resident dogs when you come to meet me. Did I tell you that I love toys, well I do, so this is a great tool to train me with. I’m not spayed yet, but I will be before I leave the shelter. Come out and meet me today, please!!... ​​ ​​ ​​ Here are just a few of the many wonderful dogs in urgent need of adoption, foster care, or rescue at Philadelphia's animal control shelter, ACCT.
