A gift for the cat.

I picked up Nicky Epstein Knitting A Kiss In Every Stitch a few weeks ago. This book has some adorable knitting projects that would make great gifts for family and friends. There are many darling hats for all ages from infants to teen and beyond. I want to try the Pampering Spa Cloths. They have a beautiful organic look to them. The sweet sock have a cute lace cuff that I would love to try. I love making socks but I get all happy making the first one and never get the second one finished. I have several sock projects in progress around this house I supose I should finish those before starting on another.

Well I spotted a project that would be quick to finish and I already had everything I needed in my stash. The Knitty Kitty Play Mat was something I knew my cat would love. Well my cat is kind of lazy and mostly sleeps so a play mat is not something she would play with. However I knew she would love to sleep on it. This mat is easy to knit and then it is felted in the washing machine to make it nice and thick. And Chloe my large cat does enjoy sleeping on it.

I thought she need something for this basket that she took over. I had used this basket for holding crafts at Bible School and had emptied it out and sat it on the floor. Chloe imediately decided to take a nap in it. Now it was covered in cat hair so it now belonged to her. I didn't really mind because it was an old stained basket not much use to me anymore. As you can see Chloe like her new mat.
