Cat Toy

Well, I guess I should put a disclaimer in here that a lot of this stuff is going to be animal related...mostly because as a student it's difficult to find time (and money!) to do large projects like sweaters and blankets and the like.  Thus the good thing about knitting for animals is that you can use inexpensive yarn (they're probably just going to chew through it anyway) and for most projects you can use whatever leftover yarn you have lying around!  They make the perfect projects!

Here's my latest knit though!  Made today.  If you don't know about it already, the site Ravelry (click on the link to go there) has a whole bunch of knitting ideas for every stage of knitter, and you can search patterns based on what kind of yarn and needles you have!  Pretty cool.

I found a Cat Ball Toy and made it in about an hour, and my cat can't get enough of it!  It's a really simple idea, and easy to make.  The only things you need to know are knit, pearl, slipping stitches and picking them up.

Here's the link to the page where you can download the PDF file free! Out Of Yarn!

Here are some pictures of the finished product.  Sorry about how blurry they are...I literally could not get him to sit still for more than a second to take the photos he loves it so much!
