So, I got two gorgeous black kittens at the weekend. They were rescued from Dalston market just over a month ago and were being fostered by an ex-colleague who is connected to the Feline Friends charity that rescues cats and finds fostering and adoptive homes.
I live in a flat, so they're going to be kept inside. To make sure they have things to keep them busy, I've been building a cat tree style activity centre up the wall!
Yesterday I knitted the first of two hammocks - I fear they might grow out of them quite quickly (and neither has been brave enough to hop up and in yet), but I thought I'd share the details.
All you'll need is:
15mm Knitting Needles
Half a bobbin of Hoooked Zpagetti
2 Wall Shelf Brackets (I got mine from B&Q)
And the knit was as simple as they come.
Cast on 25 stitches.
Knit 30 rows
Add tassels at your leisure and preference - then sew onto the wall brackets.
The great thing about Zpagetti is that it's recycled cotton tshirts and therefore can by thrown into the washing machine very easily. For the second hammock, I'm going to try and be a bit smarter about how the knitted section attaches to the brackets, for a quicker release when it needs a clean - any suggestions?
