So I though I'd knit an itty bitty version of my kitty. And WHAT fun that was... maybe not so much, cuz I had to find the yarn that would felt and was already tiny... and then it dawned on me, like mistakes do, cause I was working on another kitty and the yarn came unraveled. Hmmm... so I pulled it apart - but the second time I got it right because I didn't use so much pressure and just pull it apart into fibers... ugh, and then I realized I needed about size 3 needles, which I didn't have, which meant a trip to the store. Mind you, this was late Friday night and I had two days to whip, um, knit, this up and not ruin my social life.

While waiting for the wash to finish last night, I knit up the body - which takes longer because A. those pesky fibers. B. Itty Bitty knitting Needles. C. The lightbulb in the living room went out, and I didn't have any more multi watt bulbs, so knitting in the dim light was I, the dim whit who just had to knit in that place that I sit... lol...dr suess moment...

And here's what I got done last night:

I embroidered eyes, nose and mouth, and ran out of pink embroidery floss, so I glued the pink on the ears.

How did you get it so fuzzy (I'm kind of ... not very knowledgable when it comes to knitting)?

they are adorable, by the way.

Happiness can be found in the darkest of times...if one only remembers to turn on the lights.

You can lead a heart to love, but you can't make it fall.
