The challenge for today was to make a cat out of yarn. Hmm, I have no idea how to knit a cat and that would probably take hours. So I wanted to make a jumping cat today and the best silhouette I could find was of a tiger – RAWR! But in blue yarn, he doesn’t look so scary.Then I made a second cat of yarn wound around loose on my counter… and forgot to photograph it. So just imagine it, very cute, loose loops and spirals of yarn forming a cat.
Which led me to the third cat (with too short a face – oops), where I put glue on cardboard first and then pressed the yarn into it. (Sketch the cat out first? That’s crazy talk!)PS For a sci-fi story featuring an appearance (however brief) of a nano-enhanced tiger (RAWR!), go to the Escape Pod episode here!
