Before the last month, I had successfully felted five items.
In the past month, it’s felting: 2. Me: 0.
What: Kitty Pi
Pattern: Kitty Pi
Date started: 9/1/07
Date finished: 9/3/07
Lesson Learned: I really, really hate knitting with fun fur.
Destination: The kitties
This is the first time I’ve knit with fun fur and I HATED it. But, I think it fits for this project, so it was worth it.
I expected the sides of the bed to start going up at the second repeat of blue. Instead, they started before that, at the pink part. No amount of stretching and blocking could fix this problem. As a result, the bed was much, much too small. I’m not sure where the pattern went wrong, but it went very wrong.
So, I cut the bed up and it’s now a kitty mat. I have more wool in my stash so I may try making a kitty bed of my own design.
Speaking of kitties, here’s Parker, keeping watch on the neighborhood:
