YAY! Today is my turn on Donna Druchuna's Kitty Knits book tour! The whole schedule can be found here Please check out the other ladies' posts as they have put a lot of work into thinking of interview questions, and knitting projects.
Project made: Felted Mice from page 16
Adjustments: I didn't have Plymouth Yarn, but discovered some Patton's Marino I had was about the same guage from what I could tell.
Also, I didn't have but one set of double pointed needles, and wasn't sure what size they were so I used a set of circulars after confirming we'd be knitting it flat and then seweing it up.
Bobble. Never done one before. Also this is just my 2nd icord, though I fell in love with it and couldn't wait to use it more after the first time.
This was also my first time felting!
I inspect my icord tail.
Here's the bobbles!
First mouse off the needles!
Here the mice are post felting, pre stuffing... I swear we took a picture after stuffing but durn if I can find it.
Tripsie lays down to sniff it. She only has 3 legs. While she runs pretty fast, she tends to plop down to rest pretty frequently.
Kitty goes for a closer investigation (its hiding in the shadow of his head).
Unfortunately, it seems the catnip we had has gone bad. Kitty prefers jingly bells to play fetch with, but I think once Tripsie gets over the joys of chasing and tormenting her big brother, that she'll really like these mice :)
