FOs: Kitty Pi Beds


Kitty Pi Beds, originally uploaded by Buxtrosion.

Pattern- Kitty Pi (free online)
Yarn- Rowan Colourscape Chunky and Lamb's Pride (blue) or Rowan Cocoon (green)

We were supposed to pick up our new 10 month old kittens on Saturday, but we've had a plumbing "situation". Now everything is fixed, but we're still sleeping in the dining room until the carpet can be put back down and cleaned (probably Tuesday).
Anyway, we'll be bringing home the cats by next Saturday if not sooner. The blue bed is for Rocky/Rocket, a seal-point boy. The green one is for his sister Ziva, who is solid black with green eyes. You can see them if you go to this site and scroll down.
They are so awesome! I miss them already.

Here's a link to the blog where I got instructions on modifying Mermaid to do the collar all in one piece. I also used her tip for keeping the other color from showing through on the i-cord bind off. I highly recommend it! I've started the sleeve, but I think I need to rip it out and cast on 10 fewer stitches. The sleeves on this design are notoriously long. When I tried on the trunk show sample, I cuffed the sleeves, but I think I would prefer not to have to do that.
