Hooray for Kates! These two cool kids were my first "piquant" projects from Knitty, though I can't say I'm a piquant knitter since I skipped the legs ;-)

Here they are, one for me and one for a friend. I named them Tommy and Gina, a la Bon Jovi:

And from the back (for the tails):

Good job, everyone!

heres my kate- only its a boy and i can't think of a good name for him-

he's a little odd looking- his arms are very uneven- but thats what i get when i try to get things done at four in the morning - and i kinda like him that way - especially since i'm too lazy to fix it
name suggestions are welcome- unnamed animals make me sad
and just in case you were wondering - the cleavage in the background is elizabeth bennet's
oh- and i just want to say how much love all the other kates- i love how different they all are!

Everyone's Kate is so cute.  I am definitely knitting one up soon.

I looked at the crscrafts.com site to see about ordering some eyes, but I couldn't find them. I found the animal eyes, but not the plain black ones. I looked all over...am I blind or are they possibly out of stock?

Does anyone know if they carry the eyes at Michael's or Joann? I'd prefer instant gratification over ordering online anyway.  Grin

Kate needs a face!

maybe you could make eyes? perhaps colouring in the coloured eyes with a black permanent marker would help, or what i did for mine was i covered a split pin/paper fastener (whatever its called) with a little piece of black material by glueing it on and then i attached they eye by sticking the paper fastener though where you want kates eye to be and spread the arm things of the split pin Wink hope that helps!

In my area, Michael's doesn't carry safety eyes. They have them at JoAnn's, but not the exact size used in the pattern - I think you have a choice between 6 mm and 12 mm, if I recall correctly.

If it won't be given to a child, you can always use buttons for eyes. On my version of Kate, I used some 9 mm black sphere-shaped buttons I bought at WalMart. I posted a photo in the Jess Hutch booklet thread, but here it is again, just so you have an idea of how the button eyes look:

Also, if you do use buttons, I recommend using a small piece of felt as a backing.

ps - LuoLiu, I love the shot of your Kate on the flamingo.

Here's my version of Kate.  She's a tuxedo cat.
