A little something for kitty

First, I want to thank everyone for all their nice comments about my Norwegian Stocking. Keep your fingers crossed that I stay motivated to finish its pair:)

I know I've got like three projects going on, but I really needed to rest my brain and just knit some plain ol' stockinette. I keep trying to add a new technique in all my projects, but sometimes it's exhausting. (UPDATE: This is my first time felting, so I guess I am trying something new!) When thinking what to knit next, I couldn't help but feel obligated to knit something for my little fiber fan, Zoe. Everytime I take off a sweater, she grabs for it and kneads it with her paws and chews on it.

Like this....

(The Kitty Pi is about halfway done at this point. The striped blue & white blanket was a wedding gift hand crocheted by my awesome Aunt Bev).

At first I thought Zoe's little fetish was cute (she purrs so loud, you know she's enjoying it), but when I started putting on my sweaters and finding little wet spots from where she chews on them, I got a little grossed out. Not only that, but she drags them (by her mouth, of course) all over the house. I find my sweaters on the bathroom floor, on the couch, everywhere.

What else to make a cute cat, but a Kitty Pi? It was a fast knit, on size 11 needles and with bulky yarn. All thats left to be done if a few runs through the washer. That's easy enough. It's hauling my ass to the laundromat that takes the real motivation. Me and my sweaters just hope she sleeps on / plays with it.

A photo of its current state (random hand for size comparison):

As for the mutliple other projects I'm working on, I'm into the main pattern motif of my second Norwegian Stocking, I cast on for Backyard Leaves (thought I'd slip that one in), and I'm super close to finishing my first Jaywalker (T projects always take me forever).

I finally got my Rowan 39 today. Yeah, I know, like 6 weeks after the rest of America. I think I'm going to make that super cute fair isle cardigan first, but I've fallen in love with the KSH dress and cami. Decisions, Decisions!

I *heart* Zoe! So cute!

I've had horrible luck with felting and have temporarily given up on it. I've tried everything to no avail. I hope your Kitty Pi comes out better, I'm sure it will. I think you have an inborn knitting gene!

If you are looking at the "Jewel" fair isle cardigan in Rowan, we should do a mini-KAL. I love that pattern too. Oh yeah, I guess the baseball draft is going to be on a Sunday so I won't be down for it. Boo, hiss!
