Kay asked me to whip her up another cowl as the one which I crocheted her last year and has been worn nearly every day since then :)
Of course I obliged and sat down to crochet her a new one in slightly different colours.
Less than 2 hours down the line - Violà a finished cowl!
Don't you just love Instant gratification!
Over the past couple of weeks I have been using up all of my stashed rests of felting wool to create a warm, fluffy cat bed.
I did have to order another ball of yarn to give it the final layer at the top of the sides but I finally got this finished on Monday.
This is the bed pre-felting, measuring in at 84cm
After the first wash it measured in at a might 54cm, and resembled a cool Rastafarian hat :)
I decided it was too big and threw it back into the machine.
After the second wash (please excuse the blurry photo) Measuring in at just under 51cm it seems perfect. Our cat jumped right in even though it wasn't yet dry!
A day later and the cats understand that it is totally their property and are actually bickering about who gets to get inside it first!
I so love work that is this appreciated ;)
I have been dying to make some coffee soap, with coffee grounds and caffeine.
I made this bar over the weekend and love the way it turned out.
I can't wait to see how it feels to bath with :)
