Danger! UFO!

Last week I mentioned that the knitting guild program for this month was bringing in your oldest "UFO" (unfinished object). I dug mine out and though I never made it to guild that night, though I'd post it.

In short -- What was I thinking?!!! Love all the colors; they're my favorites. But I am a woman who should never wear horizontal stripes, particularly on a tunic (theoretically hip-length) and certainly not stripes that are anything but muted! It looked so cute on the model on the pattern. That must be it.

So, this was to be a turtleneck tunic. I found the completed front, back and sleeves. Basically, just had to finish the t-neck and sew it together, so I was pretty close. Not sure why I put it down, but I did!

After conferring with friends Suzanne and Kate, it was determined that this should never be a tunic sweater. I think I'll probably felt it and make placemats or coasters, maybe a tea-mat or a purse... of maybe, just maybe...

Yes! A cat bed! My orange boy seems to like it! And heaven knows, orange cats and navy sofas require something in-between!

Any ideas?

Ha ha! UFO or unfinished objects! I could never wear horizontal stripes either. Looks like your cat finds it quite appealing! :) xo

Hi Jeanie! Thanks for visiting Bookstack :) It's always nice to see a fellow Michigander stop by. We're about 30 minutes from Ann Arbor (yes, we're Michigan grads - don't shoot me!) but I've spent a fair amount of time in Lansing too.

I think you've found the perfect use for your horizontal stripes!
He looks very much at home there.
If he's anything like my two dogs, once he settles in on a "blannie" it's his for keeps.

The colors are great! And it seems kitty has decided that it will be the new cat bed - how cute!
