I have a girlfriend who loves kitties. She is going to be a first time grandmother come December and I wanted to make something for her. My aunt gave me this crazy yarn to play around with. I started to make a scarf with it, but I didn’t like how it was turning out. Then I tried to make a hat with it, again, I didn’t like how it was turning out. Then I thought … ‘hmmm… This yarn would be great for an amigurumi project. Maybe a bear, or a puppy?…I know, a kitty!!!’ I came up with this pattern one night while fooling around with the yarn. I’ll be honest, it is creepy yarn to work with! But it’s soft and adds great texture to the kitty.
