Handspun Kitschy Kat

Yesterday I whipped up my first toy made from my own handspun yarn, and I could not be happier with the outcome!

This kitty pattern is called Kitschy Kat and is authored by Susan Claudino. (Yup, one and the same author of Figaro, which I just finished a couple of weeks ago.) You can purchase and download the Kitschy Kat pattern from Ravelry here.

This merino wool fiber is from Hey Lady Hey in the colorway “Moon Boots.”ย There is nothing better than that teal and orange with pink, purple lime and blue nuances. It’s HEAVENLY. Being a newby spinner, I can’t yet get my plied singlesย any finer than a thick-and-thin worsted weight, so that’s exactly how this handspun turned out. Even so, this type of yarn has its uses and frankly seemed destined for a project like Kitschy Kat.

Since I was working with handspunย I had to make a couple of adjustments to the pattern. To see my notes visit my Ravelry Kitschy Kat project page here.
