I'm Looking For A Knitting Project.
I would make this but I don't have a cat. Any suggestions?→[More:]
I currently have 880yards Lopi - 2 each earthy toned yellow, red, charcoal and, green at 110yards each.
You make a good point. And Christmas is coming. Of course a blanket would be nice too although I would have to buy more yarn to get the right amount of each color. BTW, did you see the rest of the International Cat Hats?
i'm considering figuring out this felting business once i figure out what a perl is. i really gotta get on that.
Otherwise, a hat. i have cool knitting cards i have never used with eared hats and babby clothes, etc. Maybe i should scan them.
And once you get your purl down, you're gonna like felting. I've done slippers and am thinking of doing a small rug/mat for the kitchen.
As for the cards, I think I want to make something just for me this time. I just finished a felted womb - I felted the one on Knitty.com for a friend. It came out great! I put chocolates in it and a little music box playing "over the rainbow." My friend LOVED it.
Hey MonkeyButter - are you on Ravelry yet? Their pattern/yarn search is hecka robust - you can search by a combination of yardage, type of fiber/weight of yarn, category, whether you want felt projects or not, etc. etc.
Alternately, you can search by yarn and look at what other people made with 880 yards of Lopi.
