Unintentional Felting

Fat Kittykate is always well behaved around my knitting but she showed an unusual fondness for the Alpaca/Wool mix that I got from Bendigo. I think it was the furry smell. She would walk in the sitting room door and her nose would go "sniff" and she would aim straight for it. So in the end I knitted her a blanket from the left-overs from fave niece's poncho.
She sort of ignored it like cats do. Then on a trip home from the cattery she had an "accident" on it so it had to go in the wash.
DH is really great about doing the washing and hanging it out so he did it.
As you can see she now has a very small felted head-rest on the 1930s "modern brick" fireplace.
She seems to like it better than before it was accidently felted.
Moral of the story is... Cats do seem to like felted stuff and alpaca seems to felt really well.
Cheers for now Gillian


  • Fat Kitty is very cute with the felted blankie. Must remember that about Alpaca. :)

  • I had to laugh this looks so much like the pic of Patches in front of the fire! Even Patches is looking plumper at the moment. Not much excerise going on.

    We open the door, she heads outside then dashes back in with a "you must be joking" look on her face!! At least it is sunny today altho more rain is coming!! sigh!

    She has got very playful inside and will chase anything that moves.

    I will have to knit her a blankie as well, hmm have some Alpaca in the spinning stash, yes that's right I have a rather large spinning stash as well.

    Knit on >^..^<

  • Kitty philosphy, aka the Tao of Miow, "He who naps longest naps best." Does that count as an adverb? Hee hee. I mentioned your contest over at my blog and I hope you get lots of entries.

  • Oh Kitty is such a well loved cat isnt she. It seems as though she does like that blankie the best. Your competition seems to be starting to take off too!
