Not yet....I've been SO BAD!!!

I worked on getting all 3 packages together today. I want to add a little treat for everyone's pets, and I'm finishing those up tonight.

So, all three packages should be sent out by Monday at the latest.
Thanks for checking, Mulderknitter!

That is so sweet of you! Just wanted to make sure the postman didn't run away with a blankie!
My DH likes to lock the front porch where the postman leaves my packages, so I like to let him know approx what days not to lock it, so just send me a pm if convenient so I know to leave that unlocked. I sure would appreciate it!
Thanks again for starting this lovely project, I can't wait to raid the stash!

Yay! I made all the little treats for the pets!

All three of you have cats, so I've made a catnip toy for each of them!

This morning, I got out the patterns I had found online, and gathered together everything I would need to make them: fiberfill, catnip, bits of yarns, some jingle bells, and knitting needles. (I went out to Walmart last night to get the catnip.)

After getting everything together, I went to the kitchen to make 2 cups of hot tea to get me through my knitting session.


Before long, my first catnip toy was ready to be stuffed!


I put in a jingle bell, then some fiberfill, then some catnip, then more fiberfill, then I stitched it closed. Easy-peasy!


But, I wasn't thrilled with the look of the garter stitch, and didn't really enjoy knitting it with two needles. So I made the next one in the round with dpns. MUCH better!


Here's my third toy, which looks even better than the second!


After making 4 of those little toys, I decided to try a different pattern, but I changed it a LOT, and didn't like the way it turned out. It took up a lot more yarn, a lot more time, and a lot more seaming and stuffing and catnip. So I only made one of that design.


Before the day was through, I had completed ELEVEN catnip toys!

These will be going to Mulderknitter, jdee, and Spikey, to give to their kitties:
Abby, Annie, Merlin, Morty, Mabel, Max, Mulder, Itchy, Mikey, Spikey, and Luke

Those almost make me wish I was a cat person

But.....I've always been a dog lover. I'll post my best friend's picture soon. Can't wait till it's my turn!

Oh my!

What wonderful gifts for our boys! They will LOVE them!

I made one very similar to the blue one (but just used up scraps of yarn) and they love it, especially Spikey.

You are too sweet! Thank you.

I got my part today! Thanks Sandy! The candle smells wonderful And the kitties dove right into those toys!
Here's a pic of Mulder. Remember past posts where he drowns his mousy toys in his water bowl? Well, the first thing he did was claim one of those little toys as his own!

Thank you!

I guess Mulder was a mob hit man in a past life. That is just too cute.
