But I was a closet-do-it-my-own-way-er already. My cat, like most, loves 'caves'. Under blankets, towels, anything that he can curl up in and watch the world go by. So I decided to knit him a cave. I bought a couple skeins of Cascade wool and messed around till I had this floppy giant hat. Then I knitted a circle (tough to figure out but cool!), attached it to the hat, and felted the heck out of it. Let's just say, Fred doesn't have his cave but I learned a lot and had fun doing it.
We live on a sailboat and sometimes I like just a modicum of privacy so I conceived this portlight cover. I thought about it for a few days, puzzling over just how I would make this work of art. I used a skein of (gasp!) red heart and started knitting. Here's the finished product. Ok, maybe not a work of art but not too bad, right? Riiiiiight? Hubby even thinks it's not bad and you know how men hate change.
FWIW, I'm working on a PC using IE and don't get a box to upload pix either. I get text edit options, a spot to link another site, and 'edit html'. I'm using Photo Jerk to post this pic.
I am very interested in your knit port cover, hope you can upload a photo !!!
We stay on our sailboat sometimes for weeks on end and I too appreciate privacy. DH does not want to put another screwhole in the fiberglass for the readymade shades . . . arrgh!
