This is a kitty bed I made from some orange yarn I got with a giant throw from Anthropologie; the throw came wrapped in this yarn that was so thick, it's practically roving.  I knit that in a plain stockinette and sewed it to a backing of grey felt from a recycled sweater (with a little sachet of catnip in it, of course) and then made three blind mice to go with it.  These ones have their tails though.

That color is one of my favorites! It's so awesome that you were able to reuse this yarn from packaging materials!! Your kitty looks very pleased Smiley.
