I Made My Own KnitKitten!

Well, it’s just a kitten with a ball of yarn, but I can pretend it has the ball of yarn because it’s a knittin’ kitten, not just because cats love to attack yarn.

This is my first ever completed cross stitch project, although it’s not the first one I’d ever started. I never had the patience to actually finish one before. It’s a Dimensions kit for kids, but I’d tried easy designs before and given up on them. I did most of this last night and finished the backstitching today. I definitely want to try some more cross stitch in the future. The best kitty cross stitch design ever is Hello Cthulhu, which I learned about here.

Speaking of crafts other than knitting, I’m also getting into beading lately. I made a bracelet recently, and of course it is blue-green. I did take photos of it, but they look horrible because the lighting was all wrong. I’ll have to try again and post them another time (even though the only person who reads this blog regularly, Ria, has seen the bracelet in real life). I still don’t have any more scarf or yarn pics to share. I’ll have to get around to that, as well.

    The bracelet you showed me way very cool. Beading and bracelet-making is something I’ve wanted to get into for a while now, but haven’t had the materials or money to start. (Unless I get cheap supplies at Value Village or something, that is. :p)

    The knittin’ kitten is very cute. I learned how to do cross-stitch from my mom . . . in junior high, I think, or late elementary school, and I really enjoy it. I don’t do it as much as I used to, though, since knitting has taken over my life. :p

    Yeah, it’s expensive to start beading seriously, which is why I made a point of going to Michaels when they had a free make-your-own-bracelet afternoon. It wouldn’t be quite as expensive to make more bracelets like the one I did using elastic bead cord, though, because then you don’t have to buy pliers and findings.
