Cat Bed Anyone?


Weeeellll, I should've known better. Having used this yarn before (my size 15 mens slippers), I knew that this particular yarn doesn't shrink alot into itself, as opposed to straight, untweeded worsted or bulky yarns. That said, my bowl is not stiff enough to be a bowl, but it is an awesome (and large) cat bed. Does anyone need one? My cats have them already, so I'll happily give and/or mail this to anyone who could use one.

The felted slippers went much better and I like them a lot. They're not as fuzzy as Lamb's Pride, but just a stiff & formed. I'll definitely use Plymouth Galway again.

Can the 'bowl' be run through the washer again?....

Oh Dana...the slippers are breath-taking..That's a 'mighty' 'purty'cat bed...but mine would destroy it..I wonder if it can't be 're-felted'..as Marianne is suggesting..too nice to just let fall by the wayside..get on that thinking cap..Merry Christmas Dana..hugs

Merry Christmas!! The slippers are adorable, and that is a smokin' cat bed. Actually, if you can't re-felt it and no-one else wants it, my soon-to-be roomies and I are going to get a cat as soon as we (hopefully) get this house we've found. I'd be honored to use your bowl..er.. cat bed!

So, Dana, I'm still not 'ready' to knit your socks but...I am putting them in the 'list' so....what colour? or colours? would you like plain? or some Pretty Petals?(it's a nice pretty patterned cuff/leg) let me know :)
