Kittyville

I decided that I really needed a hat. So, I made myself a kittyville hat! I finished it in two days.

The main color is Bernat Denim Style color sweatshirt and the contrasting color (in ears and pompoms) is Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran. It's sort of a waste of Cashmerino, but it is the only pink worsted weight yarn that I have and I don't have much anyway. Just the leftovers from Wavy that I made for Laura Z.

I wasn't thrilled with the fiber content of the Denim Style (acrylic and cotton), but the yarn is soft and I really liked the color. I thought the gray and white would make me look like my two tabby cats. So you decide! Do I look more like Scout or Elly?
Here I am:

Here is Scout:

Here is Elly:

My other cat, Cleo, is not a tabby but she deserves make an appearance in my blog, too.

Such pretty kitties! But after comparing them all... I would have to say you look most like Elly. Although I recline more like Scout does when I'm on the couch. LOL!

Great photos! (I'm from the Knitty Coffeeshop) And your cats are adorable.

Definitely an Elly look-alike.. Love the hat! I saw the Bernat Denim Style yarn for the first time yesterday, but didn't look at the content. Would be interested in how it goes through the washer & dryer as cottons tend to shrink.
