One down...two to go - Kitty Bed

I've been wanting to make a crocheted kitty bed for awhile now. Finally found some directions that suited me: http://www.freepatterns.com/search.html?criteria=pet+bed&mode=list.

The first one is FAR from perfect, but it was a learning process. I think the girls will like them this winter when the family room gets cold.
Now I only have 2, maybe 3 more to go!! This one was done with yarn I had on hand from an afghan project that never materialized!! Yeah, I know.....but we have a new house now and a new color scheme!! :::smiles::: I'll probably end of making 3 new ones in better colors and with a bit better technique on my part.
It's a great travel project.....I take it in the car and to the beach. Once you get going, you don't even need the pattern, just your hook and 3 skeins of yarn. I discovered (imagine that) it's MUCH easier to work on AWAY from home!! I have 3 too many helpers here. Anywho, here's Miss Jinx checking it out. Shelly

Oh Shelly....I do love that kitty bed!!! I was just thinking yesterday I need to make Princess a little spot in my ART Studio as she feels she MUST be in whatever room I'm in!!! You did a super job on this!!!! Seems to me she's claimed that one!!
