real socks and a felted cat bowl
Hi all,

I can't remember if I posted these FOs yet, but I recently finished (finally!) my first-ever Two Toe-Up socks on one circular needle, and felted a cat bowl using my first-ever attempt at Fair Isle, all the while weaving in the loops in the back of the work.

Let me know what you think!

I got the instructions on how to weave in as you go fair isle from a video on youtube.com HERE. I hope this helps someone else as much as it did me.

Beautiful! What do you use the cat bowl for? Is it big enough for kitty to lay in or..?

Love the cat bowl! It's clear from the avatars on this forum that there are a lot of cat lovers around here.

I imagine, though, if I made something like that for my cats, they would still prefer an old cardboard box...

Cool. The felting/fulling gives the fair isle on the bowl a homey rustic look. And the socks look like the fit very well.
