But could you resist this tummy? No, I didn't think so.
I wanted to felt it, since the yarn is a thick and thin, and he likes the felted bag. His foster mom, Heather, gave me a pattern for a cute little round cat bed, but it was knitted from the outside in. I wasn't sure if I would have enough yarn for that, so I knit from the inside out.
It's basically based on Elizabeth Zimmerman's Pi Shawl (which can be found in Knitting Workshop) in that I basically followed her instructions for when to increase on the circle. I say basically, because at some point, I wound up with a ripple in the last round.
I figured I would just roll it over and stitch it down after I felted it to make a ridge around the bed. But after the first felting, the ripples looked kind of cute when I stiched them together. It winds up looking a lot like a pie crust, and I will avoid the obvious puns.
His good taste continues though, as the other day he tried to steal my angora sweater. (Look at those claws!)
This look better mean, "I love you, Mom."
It probably just means he loves the sweater. I knit him a little blankie with some leftovers, but he doesn't seem to care about it. At least he likes the cat bed, and I can have my bag back.
