cat, originally uploaded by planeta hilda.

Knit, knit, knit. It is sooooooo easy and it looks great on a baby's head. I took some lovely orange cotton yarn leftover (about 50 grs) and knitted a very simple shape in stockinette, alternating knit and purl rows. Then, and it was so great doing this, I sewed the felt shapes just as I was drawing and painting but stitching it with thick cotton thread, large irregular stitches. Eyes are glass beads. Really pleasant work to do. Ears and cheeks are stuffed. It stretches and fits babies' heads from 4 to 12 months. One of a kind, still available, a wonderful gift made of love and pleasure, costs only 25 Euros plus shipping, delivered in the most lovely gift wrap ever, from planet hilda. Cat head hat was lucky enough to be knitted in a mediterranean beach where the sea is so blue. The finishing was made in a terrace facing south Atlantic Ocean. The orange yarn versus blue sky and blue sea was good to experience too.

I think *this* should be in the Carnival of the Cats! If you want to, send it to me at blogdiva[at]gmail[dot]com and I will put it on this week's list.
