Some fab new colours have arrived from Hoooked Zpagetti.
So far I’ve made a purple basket
Till next time
How about a shocking pink knitted cat basket? I think so!
The basket is normal-cat-sized. It’s just that Herbie is BIG. Still, he’s happy to model for me.
The pink basket is going to be part of my new range of cat beds in all the colours of the rainbow. I’m using upcycled t-shirt yarn, and it has many little quirks. One of them is that each cone of yarn is a slightly different thickness. Which means that every time I start a new basket, I have to assess the thickness of the yarn and decide whether to use a double strand or not.
On the plus side, the range of colours is glorious and never-ending, so inspiration is never far away!
Oh, and Monty likes the pink basket too. But he kind of flattens it.
More yarn, bigger baskets!
Till next time,
