This *possibly may be* the only gift I plan on knitting for the holidays this year. I started with a Louisa Harding pattern, a very simple pattern indeed, thinking for a first-time toy knitting, I couldn’t go wrong. Ah, but I couldn’t help myself from changing it all around… so this is a very modified version. I used up some left over pima cotton boucle yarn from her baby blanket I made almost 3 years ago, and stuffed it with a bit of wool fleece I had in my loft closet…not bad for a first toy , eh? Kitty is purring and ready to go to Nora for Christmas!
I was up against a decision just before Nora’s kitty was finished: 1. Spend from now until xmas knitting gifts, or 2. Design fun new things! Though in recent years not my first choice, but gifts can always be bought , so I am choosing to work on new ideas through the holidays instead. ::sigh of relief:: ((however, this doesn’t prevent me from giving away my prototypes…lol)
Coming up: Another something to add to the ” Vineyard Rows” ensemble, as well as another thing from a ways back… in blue !
