Kitty Pi Finished!
Look who got a present. G'nam, our lucky 11yr old kitty just got a comfy new kitty bed, my knitting project for the past week. Using Wendy's popular kitty pi pattern, I knit this up in less than a week, threw it in the washing machine twice, and it felted into a perfect-sized bed for our older and chubbier kitty. Although I really made the kitty pi for the two of them to sleep in together, the younger kitty, Mui Mui hasn't been too interested in it at all.
See, G'nam loves her new prezzie and sleeps in it all the time.
Here is the kitty pi fresh off the needles pre-felting. It was knit from about four skeins of Paton's UpCountry Yarn which I scored for only $2 a ball after Michaels stopped carrying it.
And here is D asking me to make him a bed too after trying it out before felting/fulling.
Last, but not least, here's how I blocked the kitty pi using a stool that we had around the house. Quick projects can be so gratifying! This was the perfect "quick fix" project.
