kitty pi

Last weekend I whipped up a bed for the cats, so they will quit taking over our bed. I used Wendy’s pattern and Lion Brand Landscapes yarn. I read somewhere that it was great for felting. Well, I don’t know that it felted so much as shrunk up and got fuzzy, which is close, but not quite the same. I washed it twice, and that’s the best I could do. So it’s a little floppier than I had hoped, and the colors aren’t as pretty as they were in the ball, they got kind of muddy and the bright yellow flecks stand out more than I would like. Gigi is quite happy about the whole thing, but Dune isn’t too sure yet.

It was fun and easy and quick, so I may try again with some different yarn. You can’t have too many cat beds, can you?


  1. I can’t believe what wonderful models your cats are and that they don’t run away while you’re taking pictures. the cat bed looks nice, too.:-)

  2. Lovely kitty and bed. I’ve made that bed and had a lot more floppiness than you’ve managed. I have a flat round kitty pancake ๐Ÿ™‚ and I used a yarn she’d used before. Go figure ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I wish I knit! This is adorable. And it looks sooooo soft!! Awwwww.

say something nice...
