I have much to report

It's been almost two weeks since my last real post, and as my two weeks of vacation draws to a close I suppose it's time to post something before falling into the depths of despair that is a-return-to-work-in-two-measly-days. yargh. I am already counting down the days to my next week off in the fall. How sad is that?

A few things surpringly did get completed in the last couple weeks though. I'm not much of a knitter when travelling, so it's all the more surprising still.

Felting project number two, Archie's bed is done. Here's the before and after:

My feet are there deliberately so you can note uh, "shrinkage". It wasn't one of my Nana's inadvertent yet patented "thumb in photo" shots.
yarn: Noro Big Kureyon (sorry not sure of the colourway #(it was a teal & black combo)
needles: Denise interchangeables size 13 U.S
pattern: Pi Kitty bed

Does Archie love it? Well, I guess we'll see in the winter, since it's already packed away. Shockingly he's not so keen on hangin' out in felted wool in the 42 degree humidex. I can't imagine it will replace his favourite bed, but we can hope. At least he indulged me in a few pictures.

If you're looking for something to use up all of that old lopi you've got hanging around give this baby a whirl. Then you can donate all the beds you make to your local humane society and make all the puppies and kitties a little bit happier.

So, has everyone Simpsonized themselves yet?

I Simpsonized myself, but it's lame.

Archie looks very comfortable in his bed!

Well looks like you gotta get back to things as usual! :o)

Very cute bed, Archie is a lucky cat - mine have to make do with fleece blankets from Ikea - no Noro for them

I Simpsonized myself and it turned out pretty good - except the clothes. C'mon, no separate shoe option?

Hmm, and a use for my Lopi...

Oh - if you go to the Ravelry website you can check how far down the list yer on - how cool is that?

cool, though there are still 3 THOUSAND people ahead of me. Guess it's my own stupid fault for resisting for so long. The one plus is that there are 12,000 people in line behind me. take that suckers.
