Felted

May 23, 2007 at 10:41 am 8 comments

I found a pattern for a felted kitty. I knit it in one weekend. I felted it. N said it was ugly. I was going to send it to my mom for her birthday.

Before:
yarn 026

Now:

yarn 027

and the fish just looks mangled. Oh well. I don’t think felting is my thing. If it were, however, I would definitely make another, because it was a fun, quick knit. I used Garnstudio Alaska. I have another ball, and I think I’ll make mittens out of it. It’s soft and heavy.

It wouldn’t be my blog without talking about my kids, so…Girly had an appointment today. She’s 25 inches tall (long?). She’s going to outgrow her carseat soon. Goozle freaked out, though, because he’s scared of the scale and shots. Girly handled both like a pro.

That’s a Tylenol nap.

    What did the fish look like? Wonder why it didn’t work?

    Oh, I love the kitty, almost as cute as the girly! Send it to your Mom, she will love it. I checked out the link for the pattern and I saw the Asian coins hanging around the neck on the ribbon. I have some of those coins,,,would you like a few? I could send them to you, if you want. just let me know.

    I think the kitty is cute and a bit querky, I could put it in my car, it will match!
    K has a box of goods for girlie, maybe I can get the needles and put it in the same box. Where’s Goozle’s picture? Don’t miss dragging you 4 toddlers to appointments, always have vivid memories of the swimsuit I tried on with you
    all in the tiny fitting room, actually that is why I kept the suit! ha ha, love,mom

    Although I have never felted anything, I think it looks very cute
