The Poll/SP idea - Comment!

This is where I thought we could comment on the poll over in yonder sidebar. Seeing as I went for the "Something else which I should comment on" option, I figured I should put together a place for those comments.

Here's the thing, I have yet to make a Kitty Pi from Stitch 'n Bitch. In fact, I have yet to make anything from one of the dozens (yes, dozens) of knitting books I own. I'm trying to fix that. So, rather than make something from online, or a book I don't own (the Cat Bordhi book - which I do plan on getting!) I think I'll go the route of the first knitting book I bought. So yeah. I vote Kitty Pi. Which kinda goes with the felted Cat Bordhi thing. So um, yeah. What do y'all think?

Also - in the thread in "knittyfolk in blogland" forum on knitty, we mentioned the idea of an SP sort of event for our loverly kitties. I love this idea, and would definitely want to keep it to small things. (kitty treats, knitted toys, etc.) I don't want this costing too much in postage for anyone. I'll start putting together a questionnaire of sorts, and when it's ready, I'll post it here for y'all to fill out and e-mail to me. Sound good? Suggestions on the sp thing? Comment here too please.

Hi there!

I've made two kitty pi beds from this pattern:

and loved it. I promised to make one for my sister about, oh, 9 months ago and a Pi KAL would kill two birds with one stone (excuse the pun) because I'm also in the Stashalong!

P.S. I love the Kitty SP idea. It would truly cement our CCL status. Let me know if you need any help on the Questionaire!

Love both ideas. Funny, I just bookmarked Kitty Pi from Wendy Knits a couple days back! Meant to be, I guess. Which first? The pi or the sp?

I may have to pass on both of these really cool ideas. Please see my post today and I'm sure you'll understand.

I hate to be such a downer...

Sad to hear that buttercup. It's always so hard to lose a pet.

If anyone else's cats are like mine, we could pop some elastic bands and beer caps into envelopes!

I'm for knitting anything for my cats, although I'm sure they would appreciate another cat bed.

I agree with keeping the SC (secret cat) small, too. If you really wanted to send something larger, it's up to you, but I can esily see how that would make your SC feel obligated to send larger gifts back.

Buttercup, I'm really sorry.

I love the idea of a KAL and SP. :) Count me in.

Hee hee! I'm down for a kitty SP...ha ha what a great idea! And as for a KAL, I'd be I a bad kitty mommy? I've yet to knit those furry little fleshbags anything yet!?
