Today is kitty bed day. I am planning to start knitting my kitty bed for the Kitty Beds for Petfinder.com project today.
Here ‘s what I’m using:
That’s Noro Big Kureyon. The very same Noro Big Kureyon I fished out of the SSRP box at the beginning of the month. Well, half of it anyway. I sent the other half to a knitter in Singapore who will also use it to make a kitty bed.
Just for fun (and because I am insane) I decided to add another strand of something to the Big Kureyon as I knit the bed. To make it extra plush and snuggly. Hence the Heilo in coordinating (?) colors.
I am a little concerned, however, that I’ll need to send a pair of sunglasses along with the bed for the poor kitty who becomes the end-user. Hey, are cats colorblind? I hope?
(Is it obvious to all that I am a geek when I refer to a cat as an end-user?)
We’ve gotten a lot of response to the Kitty Bed Project. If you are interested in joining and can knit a kittybed for Petfinder.com by the beginning of November (see my blog entries of last week for explanation of the project), please feel free to join the Yahoo Group for the project.
I spent the weekend knitting on Fern. I finished the right front, and the first sleeve. Here is the selfsame sleeve, quickly pinned out for its photo op:
I got my kitty bed right here!
