Category: Felting(or is it Fulling)


My wonderful, sweet, adoring, cuddle bug of a cat has snubbed my Kitty Pi. The little witch won’t come near it. I have yet to try catnip or treats as I ran out of those last week. As soon as I can get some I will try rubbing the catnip(or maybe get the catnip spray) all over Kitty Pi. Oh I forgot to show you the pictures after felting.

I really like it though. It is much softer than I thought it would be. I kinda expected it to be a little scratchy. I have a good bit of the green wool left. I might make felted slippers with it. Who knows.

Kitty Pi is DONE folks! I just bound off and wove in the ends a little about 15 minutes ago. I actually got a couple of pictures. Not good pictures mind you. It’s 5:30 here and the sun is setting and I have crap for light in this house. And I am NOT going outside. (sick dragonfly here. No voice. Achey. The crud. Fun)

Kitty Pi
The colors are a chocolate brown and forest green of an unknown brand. 100% wool is all I know. I used size 13 circs(KnitPicks) and Patons Divine leftover from Jeffs Cowardly lion costume in place of eyelash yarn on the rim.

I decided that I would try felting(is it fulling or felting? I will use felting until someone corrects me.) it in the bathtub with my bare hands. I didn’t want to wait for the washer to be freed up from the 5 million loads of laundry I have yet to finish. Anyways. My point is that this stuff STINKS worse than wet dog! Now don’t get me wrong. I may not be a dog lover. I actually kinda like dogs. But WET DOG?! Makes me really appreciate my stuck up Mocha Kitty. I may get scratched up a bit when I give her a bath but at least she doesn’t smell funky.

So I squeezed most of the water out. Got all of our jeans from the dirty hamper. And threw it all in the washer on Hot/Warm on the Super Heavy Wash setting. I will check it soon. I just hope my jeans don’t stink. Gotta go and spray the bathroom. The stench is not only lingering, It’s eeking around through the hallway. Catch it while I can.
