I am going to make this (http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter05/PATTkate.html) kitty from knitty just because I think it's cute. If anyone wants to join in, feel free to! I'm using yarns out of my stash, so it will also be a great project for the stash buster KAL. :thumbsup: You can do whatever colors you want, not just what's pictured! Be creative!!

Oh that is cuuuuuuuuuuuute! I was about to post something about the way it struts in the picture, but then I noticed they addressed it: "Another thing
Kate won't be able to stand on her own; special effects were used for the photo."

:roflhard:

i LOVE that pattern!

i think it might be too advanced for me though.

what yarn are you using?

Danielle

It is just Caron Simply Soft, nothing fancy. I am using grape and soft orchid for the body colors.

I don't think it would be too advanced, you just need to know how to use dpn's and increase/decrease. :D

Jenelle,
Have you started yours yet? I'm almost finished with the main body of mine. I'm trying to sew the nose on, and I can't get it to look right. I'm terrible at sewing! :oops: I'll get it done eventually.

No, I havn't started mine yet. I have to wait to get to Michaels this weekend to get more DPN's or I'll have to find some chopsticks and make more dpn's.

Mine is coming along well, the body is finished and I *finally* got the nose, mouth, and eyes sewed on, and the ears made....Just need to make the arms and legs. She's really cute so far!

*bump*

Here is my progress on Kate...I still haven't sewn the ears on, or made the arms or legs yet...I put the eyes closer together than the eyes on the knitty one...They are actually art glass beads, but look like eyes! :thumbsup:

Has anyone started theirs yet??
