The Jungle Spirit

And here we are again – a week later there’s more sweaters and more designs coming to my shop! This time it’s all about those bright and beautiful spring colors.

These first sweaters are from “Colibri” series. It was a limited edition yarn, which (unfortunately) I found a little bit too late, so I could grab only couple different balls that were still left. I absolutely love the color of this yarn – it’s so bright and just associates with warmth, sun, good mood and great times! The yarn is not only beautiful looking, but also is very thick due to the pattern I chose for these sweaters. It consists of 100% acrylic, which means that it’s soft and doesn’t irritate even the most sensitive skin. Only blue colibri (the middle one) is still available, so make sure to grab it if you want it! You can get it here: Blue Colibri.5

Another sweater continues the jungle theme. Because where else could you see such an elegant leopard?! Well, probably at your home if you get one of these sweaters! This style is available in few sizes, so it will make quite a few kitties happy and wild. The sweater is hand knitted, while the decorations around neck, bottom of the sweater and sleeves are hand crocheted. This sweater was designed very fast and impulsively as I didn’t know how I want it to look like once it’s finished. But I am happy with the result – I think it looks really good! The yarn is 75% wool and 25% polyamide, so it’s very warm and breaths really well. You can get the sweater here: Elegant Leopard.

Now this sweater is a real improvisation! I started it with this beautiful brown yarn that has tiny golden threads in it and ended up with soft wool & mohair mix. This sweater is really comfy and will keep your kitty really warm! Peach color yarn is 48% acrylic, 32% polyamide, 10% wool and 10% mohair, while the brown one consists of 100% acrylic. Get this warm sweater for your one of a kind kitty here: Peachy Golds.

And the last, but definitely not the least is this sweater made of 100% acrylic yarn with little golden threads. I am really unsatisfied, that it was quite impossible to show in the pictures all the shine that it has, but my camera just refuses to see what I see! 🙂 Probably it’s because the golden shine shows up in certain light and only in some parts of the sweater. It also has this cute kitty button, which nicely finishes up the sweater. You can get this nice and soft sweater over here: Golden Shine.

I hope you enjoyed this little blog post and have a wonderful day! 🙂

Where birds of paradise flee and Arctic foxes sleep

Hello everyone! It’s been a while since I last made not only a blog post, but also something new for PurringPyjamas shop. I was so busy working on different things, making sweaters that are already staples in my shop and still trying to keep PurringPyjamas Facebook page updated. But now I have more free time, which means I can make more new stuff. And so here are some sweaters I made over the past few weeks. Let’s get right into it!

567

The first sweater is what I like to call “Bird Of Paradise”. I know that the colors might not be exactly the same, but it was the first thought that came to my mind once I finished it. It is very soft and warm, made out of 100% acrylic yarn. This is not an actual sweater, because it is quite short, so I like to call it a vest or a crop top – whichever you prefer. There’s only one sweater available. You can get it here: Bird Of Paradise.

8910

Continuing with the fluffy theme, here we have yet another sweater, just this time it is called “Moss”. That’s how the yarn was called, and I think it describes the color & general appearance of the sweater quite accurately. It is extremely soft, very comfy and warm. The yarn is 40% polyamide and 30% acrylic, which gives it the softness, and it also contains 30% wool to keep the kitty warm. You can get it right here: Moss sweater.

202122

And the last one – but not the least – sweater in this fluffy series is this Arctic Fox sweater. It is M size, so none of my cats fit to model it (considering it’s 3 sizes too big for my cats). I tried my best to show how it looks like, but then again – when the sweater is this fluffy, you can’t even tell whether you’re looking at the front of the sweater or the back of it. 🙂 Nevertheless, this sweater is the warmest, fluffiest and thickest out of all three fluffy sweaters. The yarn is 100% acrylic. It is available over here: Arctic Fox.

1243

This yarn I had for a while. I think I bought it back in the summer of 2015, because as soon as I saw it, I fell in love with it and had to have it. Especially, that it was a limited edition yarn, which means that once it’s gone, it’s gone. Few days ago I checked the company’s website, and I was so happy I bought quite a bit of this yarn, because it is not available anymore. This sweater has beautiful ombre effect that goes from dark gray to gorgeous baby blue/bluish mint color. The neckline has a design of cable knit, while the front of it is decorated with metallic beads. I was thinking for a while about the design of this sweater, but in the end I decided to leave this gorgeous yarn on it’s own without adding some crazy patterns and instead I played with the neckline a bit. The yarn is 100% acrylic, so it is extremely soft, very stretchy, thick and warm. There are quite many sweaters available in different sizes. Get one of these gorgeous sweaters for your friend over here: Fresh mint.

111213

Now these 3 sweaters are made out of the same yarn, just in different colors. Let me tell you: these sweaters are the softest things you’ve ever touched in your life! They’re extremely stretchy, which means that they give maximum movement ability for your cat. The yarn is made of 48% acrylic and 32% polyamide, which provide the softness and stretchiness, while 10% of mohair and 10% of wool give the warmth and nice fluff to the sweater. These sweaters are available in few sizes, you just need to choose the color you like! You can find the sweaters here: Soft Beige, Browns & Grays, Deep Blues.

And here are some behind the scenes pictures. I hope you enjoy it! 🙂

When water turned into wine

And what exactly happened when water turned into wine? Awesome yarn was born, that’s what! 🙂 And from it came this furry sweater for a naked kitty.

This sweater isn’t a new addition to my shop, but I wasn’t satisfied with the previous pictures, so I finally decided it’s time to change it. I found the old sweater, fixed it up a little bit, grabbed Beliza and shot some pictures. I think it turned out pretty good.

1

This shoot was quite challenging – all Beliza wanted to do was to lay and look out of the window. And yes, the picture you see above was one of the two shots of her actually sitting. Anyway, we got some good pictures, and that’s what matters!

Yarn is 70% acrylic and 30% wool. It’s quite fluffy and soft because of the acrylic and the wool gives that nice warmth to it. This style sweater is available in many sizes and colors: wine, peach, black, orange, white, pale green, bright blue and bluish purple. Nice selection of colors to suit everyone’s taste. Oh, and did I mention that the rose charm you see is actually made of antique silver? And those little stones are natural agate. Isn’t it awesome? It will suit any fancy kitty’s taste. You can find the sweater over here: Fluffy sweater.

Buried under the leaves

Can you believe today is the last day of September? Gosh, where all this time is going?! It’s hard to believe that soon we’ll be waiting for the first snow and exchanging gifts on Christmas. I am not sure how much I am feeling all the autumn spirit, but cats are definitely there! Even though they still love spending their time in the balcony, more and more often they choose to rather stay inside under the blanket. And so this autumnal sweater was inspired by them.

1

I’ve had this yarn for quite short time, because I wanted to do something with it. A lot. I think it reflects autumn so well – it is soft, warm and those brown & burgundy colors are simply gorgeous.

3

Only one sweater is available in size XXS, because I could find only small amount of this yarn to buy. It can be made with sleeves too, so all depends on your wishes only. Yarn is 100% wool, so believe me – when I say it’s warm, it really is.

And here are some more pictures from shoot! Enjoy!

Oh yes, here comes the dessert! They are so addicted to all the vitamin pastes and treats. But they earn it! :)

Hey, where's my paste? I want mooooreee!

PurringPyjamas Halloween Collection 2015: Eat, Drink And Be Scary!


When witches go riding, and black cats are seen,
the moon laughs and whispers, ‘tis near Halloween.
~Author Unknown

Even though it’s only September (or, actually, ALREADY September), I started planning Halloween collection for PurringPyjamas back in the summer. And even though lately I’ve been crazy busy, I managed to finish and put up all the sweaters for sale like couple of weeks ago. And, well, PurringPyjamas blog apparently got a little forgotten… But not anymore! I started doing some more time planning, so I’m hoping to be posting over here at least once a week. Yay, more cute and soft cats coming! Because internet can never have too many cat pictures and videos. Ever.

Anyway, so here it is – Halloween collection that I finally finished! Let’s get into it.

So the very first sweater is one of the Halloween essentials – I mean, come on, who doesn’t have skulls on Halloween? We have human skulls (fake ones, hopefully, but you can have whatever makes you happy) at home, but I decided to pimp the cats with cat skulls. Because why would the cat be interested in us, humans? 😀 Let the cat have this super cool and super warm cat skull sweater.

This awesome sweater is warm and stretchy, because yarn is 75% wool and 25% polyamide. It is available for purrrchasing right over here: Cat Skull Sweater.

When I was thinking about Halloween collection, I always had in my mind this picture of a cat sitting on the moon. So yeah, I guess you got the cat and all you need now is…the moon! And this sweater gives you exactly that. It also gives to your cat warm pleasures and is very soft.

Yarn is 75% wool and 25% polyamide. Fly your cat to the moon right over here: Fly To The Moon.

Now this one is definitely another one (and probably the main) of Halloween essentials – pumpkin! Believe it or not, I have never ever carved a pumpkin in my life, because over here in Europe (at least in Lithuania and Finland) people don’t really celebrate Halloween. So at least I can keep up the Halloween spirit through this cool pumpkin sweater!

Again, yarn is 75% wool and 25% polyamide. Carve the pumpkin together with your cat over here: Pumpkin.

And the last, but definitely not the least is this orange sweater with a bat. Yep, I’ve never seen a bat either, but I think they’re insanely cute! So that’s the story behind this sweater: I like bats, they’re cute, they’re also associated with Halloween, so why not let your cat to rock a sweater with bats?

13

15

14

And yes, once again the yarn is 75% wool and 25% polyamide, which means this sweater is soft, stretchy and oh so warm. You can purchase it right over here: Bats.

And what about you? Do you celebrate Halloween? Whether you like Halloween or not (or simply don’t care about it), have a beautiful day and enjoy this colorful autumn!

I wish…

In the end of June I was contacted by a lady called Dana, who works for ”Make a wish” organization. She told me, that she was looking for a sweater for Sphynx kitten and whether I could make one within a month. The Sphynx kitten was one child’s wish and he wanted the kitten to have a yellow sweater. Without a doubt I was immediately up for it! If I have an opportunity to make this world at least a little bit better place, I’ll do it. Especially, if all it takes is a one tiny cat sweater. So, Dana chose this design:

And this is what I came up with few days later:

“Make a wish” received the sweater quickly and without any problems. Another awesome thing is that more people also participated in this and the boy received in total 3 yellow sweaters for his new kitty! He loves the kitten so much and he helped him to get through all the difficult treatments. Here are couple of pictures of him and the kitty (I blurred the boy’s face for understandable reasons):

It warms my heart so much to see a smile on this little boy’s face! I really hope he will get better and gets to enjoy his life to the fullest for many years to come.

A walk in dandelion fields

This week was so busy I thought I’ll lose my mind! I needed to do so many things, and my failed health definitely didn’t help me at all. But at least by now I’m finally getting a grip of everything and can finally focus on the important things. But, well, at least I always have my cute soft kitties to cuddle with. And let me tell you – their purrs heal better than any medicine! Like, how can you feel bad, when you walk into the room and see something like this?

10

When I was still feeling good and had some free time, my fingers were itching to do something. And so I found yarn, which I bought a while ago and started knitting. I didn’t really have any clear idea of the sweater, so I just went with the flow. I knew that even though the yarn is thick, I wanted it to look “summery” and fresh. And to me there’s one thing that remind me of re-born nature and late spring – dandelions. So why not to make a Dandelion sweater?

1

Doesn’t look bad after all, huh? It required some precision to make it, but it was so much fun. And oh, I love that bright coral color!

I have only two sweaters available in sizes S and XXS. Yarn is 100% polyacrylic.

This sweater is sold out.

And even though the sweater was so bright and nice, my model Beliza was all grumpy and sleepy. Nothing helped – no treats and no toys were interesting to her. Maybe it was the rainy weather that caused it, or maybe she just didn’t get enough of her beauty sleep. Anyway, we managed to work something out and got some nice pictures!

Bright reds and puffy fringes

The last few days  I’ve been knitting and crocheting day and night. Literally. And now, as I am writing this post it’s exactly 4:18 am. Do I feel like sleeping? Nope. Am I tired? Can’t be sure, but my back would say a definite yes. So what do you do, when you have insomnia? In my case, you watch something and knit knit knit. Meanwhile Bacha is sitting on my laps, purring and giving me constant kisses. She’s such a sweetheart, it always seems that she understands so much more than I think she does. Cats are absolutely amazing animals sharing their unconditional love with us. 🙂

Anyway, so as I said before I was knitting loads of things. And here I represent one of the shirts I crocheted – a light, bright colored summer sweater with cute fringes all around it. This sweater is perfect for every naked sun worshipper as it protects sensitive skin from the sun, but also is very light, because it’s made of 100% cotton.

2

Actually, I’ve had different plans for this yarn and I even started crocheting an absolutely different sweater. But after some time I realized, that it will take loads of time to finish it. Yep, my imagination again went wild and created something that is so much harder to fulfill in the reality. So then this boho-kitty fringy sweater was born. It is available in 3 colors: bright red, medium blue and white as snow.

The sweater is available for purchase in my Etsy shop right over here: Fringy sweater.

And here are some pictures of Bacha enjoying her photoshoot. It was one of the lightest weight sweaters she has ever worn, so she definitely didn’t think twice about the play time!

What? Photoshoot? Again???

Oh, wait! It looks like a playtime! Interesting…

Watch and learn!

Got it!

Let’s bite here!

And over there!

Let’s finish it!

Mom, I think I finally killed it. You can take it back now.

Somewhere over the rainbow…

Believe it or not, but I haven’t seen the rainbow yet! Yep, it’s already the middle of June, which is sort of the middle of the year 2015, but no rainbows are seen through my windows so far. And if you don’t see your life in a rainbowy perspective, then make yourself one! And that’s exactly what I did.

I’ve always loved working with bright colors. And while something super colorful and bright doesn’t always look great on people, it always looks simply adorable on animals. And this is how the rainbow sweater was born. I was checking out this yarn for a while already, but often for various reasons (like “Oh, but I have quite a few orders to fulfill and there’s no time”, “But I have so much of other yarn, that’s waiting to be used…”) I refused buying it. But around a month ago, when I was buying more yarn for the most popular sweaters, I just decided to screw all the silly reasons and bought it. And bit by bit the rainbow sweater was born.

Beliza

Beautiful Beliza and her super purrfesional modeling.

Because of the bright colors I wanted to keep the design really simple, because it’s very easy to overdo things. And in this case saying “less is more” works just perfectly. Though I played a bit with the neckline: it can be worn just straight up like in the pictures below, or it can be bent down like in the picture above. I personally like both variations and what you choose depends only on your and your cat’s taste.

23

The sweater is available for purrrchasing right over here: Rainbow sweater.

And here are some pictures from “behind the scenes”, or what buyers don’t actually see. I try to make every single photoshoot as comfortable for the cat as possible. And believe me – they love it! Who wouldn’t love to play with their favorite toys and get very nom nom treats?

Sneaking…

Don’t you interrupt me! I’m busy, don’t you see???

Got it!

The toy is mine!

Too tired to stand… What a work out!
