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?
