Nanny Knits a Nest

Thing is. She doesn't even like cats. Well, it's not so much that she doesn't like them as much as she's afraid of them. She's always afraid they'll jump up on her. It's a justified fear considering she's usually knitting. Cats are fascinated by knitting. Nanny has been knitting for 50 years and knits so fast it makes the yarn bounce. That is a cat's dream toy if there ever was one.

I think she knit her this bed to try to keep her in one spot. Far, far away from her. It needs another run through the washer to complete the felting process, but Ethel doesn't want to give it up. I think she likes it.


For those interested you can purchase the pattern at Sheep Street, just ask for the felted pet bed pattern.

What a cute idea! I looked for a link on their site, but I guess I just need to call them. Their store has such a great name that I've been wanting to run up there... :-).

Wow - my Emma would love that! She's a short hair version of Ethel. I haven't knitted in over 35 years and have been thinking of trying it again, since my first grandchild is due very soon.
