Out of the blue, a giant wool cat basket order on Etsy. This was a returning customer who first ordered a hand-felted wool basket 4 years ago, now ordering an upgrade for a new kitten, in white merino. An excellent choice!

This was the first time I'd worked with giant merino, and my goodness it was soooo soft, it was a joy. 

My cats were desperate to sniff it and lick it and sit on it, so they were banished from the room whilst I knitted this customer order. I used my 20mm double pins, made for me by my Uncle David. 

All finished and ready to send. Turns out the customer's new kitten is a Maine Coon - just like my cats. But mine don't have a merino wool cat bed, just several well-used texel fleece versions. I might have to make a merino wool cat bed for my new kitten....coming soon!

Many thanks to World of Wool for beautiful quality merino and quick delivery.
