I’ve been trying to be good about finishing up long-lingering projects this year. I tend to get distracted by new patterns and yarns that come across my desk, so I constantly have a pile of projects with unwoven ends or half-knitted sleeves.
I found this little guy in a plastic shoebox, just missing his ears:
I was about to look for stash yarn to finish him up, but then I found two little knitted ears in the bottom of the box. I was so close! I have no idea what kept me from the finish line with this project, but I’m thoroughly embarrassed. He even had his face and tiny black button eyes all finished – shame on me!
Looking at my Ravelry notes (where I also found out that I started this project in 2008), I used Swish DK and the free Kate pattern from Knitty.com and had decided to make him a fat pet without arms or legs for maximum squishability.
Welcome to the world, squishable kitty! I promise to let you see the light of day and not bury you in any more plastic shoeboxes!
