Remember this? I blogged about Kitty Pi on Feb 25, 2014 . I made this cat bed out of all the bits and pieces of my handspun; the practice bits.
Finally sent it to my daughter Darcey for her precious Roxy who adores my hand knits and will climb up in their closet to get one. Results? This review came in this morning from Roxy’s sister Pepper who has never been interested in my hand knits. Photographed by my highly creative s-i-l Todd. Stay tuned!
And, Pepper is an attack cat! My husband has the bragging scars to prove it.
During a long, circuitous search for half-Pi shawls, I happened upon this free Kitty Pi pattern at Wendy Knits. Images of all of my spinning bits and pieces popped into my head. Remember the “fiber sandwich” from spinning class? The first yarn into the Pi. All the horrid first spinning tries, slubs, over-twists, super thin spots – into the Pi. Almost every yucky bit of stuff I spun when first learning is now in the Pi. The final size is 14″ inches diameter by 4″ inches in height. The only non-hand spun yarn is the bit at the top, I used a bit of left-over fancy stuff there. As it was in the washer felting, I thought, “Geeze, I could have made some yarn bowls with it too.”

The Trio of Felted Pentafold Moebius Bowls has been in my Ravelry Library for over a year. I still have some yuck yarn left. It’s all white tones so I will have to dye it. Keep posted.
What other projects have you spinners made with your Ugly Duckling bits of pieces from your first spinning experiences?
