I can't believe I've had this blog up and running for nearly a month now and haven't said squat about anything crafty (actually, it looks like I've discussed food mostly...after all, I do like to eat!)
To christen my blog with my first crafty piece, I have just finished knitting a mini hammock for a very special recipient - a ferret named Terra! I'm a member of a swap group on Craftster, and a little while back received a request for a custom knit hammock for Terra. I didn't even know what a ferret hammock was at the time, although it turns out that they're like hanging sleeping bags with a crawl space for the ferret to snuggle in. Apparently ferrets need bright and bold colors to really stimulate the senses, so I went with a red top and pink bottom, using both colors twisted together for the ties. I think it's super cute, and my comedian of a husband has requested one for himself. :)
For the years I've been knitting, I can officially say that this is the most random thing I've ever knit. I'm also quite concerned that Terra won't like it. I've never had to seek approval from a ferret before, but there's a first time for everything! Terra's mom has assured me that she'll love it though and will be providing action shots soon.
