Mistakes are the portals of discovery. ~ James Joyce (1882 – 1941)

Before the last month, I had successfully felted five items.

In the past month, it’s felting: 2. Me: 0.

Kitty Pi

What: Kitty Pi

Yarn: Lion Wool in Rose, Ebony, Winter White and Cadet Blue; Festive Fur in White
Needles: size 10

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:
