Success!

I hear horror stories of finicky kittens who don't like the things that their owners lovingly knit for them. My last cat, Dumars, was definitely this way. I just finished my retro-colored Kitty Pi, which is really more of a Kitty Spot. With the way I added increases, I just cannot get the sides to stand up, even with vigorous blocking!

Thank goodness that they don't care:



Orangecat and Blackcat both investigated and then immediately plopped down on their new bed! Yay!

Now hopefully they weren't just being polite and will continue to sit on it. As far as the pattern goes, because of my increases I basically used five skeins of lamb's pride bulky, although my leftovers suggest I could have gotten it out of four with a solid-colored version. The fuzz is my mom's free skein of Bernat Disco. A while back they ran a promo where they would send you a skein of this yarn - too bad it's metallic and glittery and furry and just overall not very nice. The kittens don't mind.

They both look very pleased with their new sleep spot! My cat is very fickle - she changes her sleep spot every 3 nights. So much for the basket I bought her and lovely crocheted cat blankie. Sigh!
