I am so impressed with your cat spinning.  I just looked at my cat (long haired/Siamese cross) and she had some unrepeatable things to say to that idea.  She's such a trashy beast, but I did name her Donkey.

Anyway, I love this, this is fantastic.  As to what to make, the headband idea is a good one if he's that sort of guy.  Maybe a cozie for coffee cups?  Fingerless short gloves?  Slippers?

Oooh, your Mirage yarn looks lovely.  I also love the photo you put up of her, she looks like she's heard you talking about picking her up and spinning her.

Well done! Enjoy your soft kitty accessory. Mirage resembles my Scarlet, a super soft black kitty.

Maybe the rest of us black cat people should take up a collection for you so you can have two mittens from kittens.

Did anyone else's mom say "What fur? Cat's fur to make kitten's britches!" whenever asked "What for?". Random thought. Don't let it sidetrack the kudos you're getting.

Beware the Platypirates and their tri-corner hats.

Oh my gosh, I laughed SO many times reading your guys comments!

I'm thinking about using it for the brim of a hat and maybe spinning up some woolen bulky for the top part. Now I just gotta learn to spin woolen... Sadly, our Northern Ontario weather cycle doesn't accommodate headbands and earmuffs too well, with a really short window of opportunity. Well, at least for human chihuahuas like me Tongue
