Ideas, Inspiration and Hints!

One of the problems with this challenge is that I am going to end up with too many ideas for what to make, some of which are bound to be beyond my skill level!  Recently I have seen a few things on the internet that I would LOVE to make, but am not sure I can…

1. My cat, as with cats everywhere, likes to hide inside things.  Recently she has favoured my husband’s panniers for his touring bike.  This has made me think she would really love a cat cave… You can make them out of felt but it would use a LOT of wool and a LOT of arm muscle power (totally lacking in that!).  Still it’s pretty tempting, how cool are these?

2. I saw this whale shared on a friend’s facebook page and tracked down the tutorial to a Finnish blog.  I really doubt I could manage to make this well, seeing as my sewing is dreadful but I may try… We have plenty of old jeans around the house as my husband wears them out incredibly quickly.

3. Hints.  I have had a hint that R would like gloves.  I quite fancy trying to knit some anyway, but now I’ve got a pattern they actually look tricky. I just hope they turn out ok, and that people will understand if they get gifts that aren’t quite shop bought standards of perfection…
