Since making Kitty Poufs for my SIL in commemoration of the March on Washington I have had an idea. I have had this bulkyish yarn that I thought could easily make some poufs and use up yarn from my stash. A win-win! I finished these poufs last weekend and they are off in the mail to my great nieces and nephew.
The specifics: the Mini Kitty Pouf pattern, 4 skeins of Plymouth Yarn Haciendo, two in #109 purple and two in #110 a light turquoise blue. These photos are rubbish due to the late afternoon sun. Each pouf took one skein of yarn about 110 yards. I cast on 60 stitches rather than the suggested 44 due to my yarn being only bulkyish not bulky. I used size 11 needles. They were a breeze to make and hopefully will make four little ones smile this week when they arrive. These are for my brother's children's, children. I have only met one of them and they need a reminder they have a Great Aunt Meredith who cares about them. I am making two more for when my new family members arrive later this spring and summer. Their older siblings will deserve a treat and this will be fun to already have completed.
Little Buddy informed me yesterday it would be fun to paint. So being the fun mom that I am I agreed. Usually I am too tired after work to get much of a mess going, thus the fun mom sarcastic comment. But we did paint, and guess who had fun?
