I finally finished the cat I was working on and named him Limey ’cause I liked the lime green stripes I gave him. I follow Nekoyama‘s pattern initially and then start improvising. I decided that instead of the sleek physique like my cat Pinkie, I wanted this guy to be a little chubbier, more huggable.
Not that I don’t have enough living cats to hug around here. There are six living, breathing cats who get very perturbed that I pay more attention to these yarn cats than to them and they are very vocal about it. Nothing like six cats meowing to get your attention. Well maybe three dogs barking, that always makes me come running. I live in a zoo and then I go and make more animals. Am I nuts?? Don’t bother answering, I know I am.
Back to crochet. All the items I’ve crocheted lately have been cotton. I love Lily Sugar n Cream cotton yarn but I’m thinking of exploring some other brands. Any suggestions out there? So as far as Limey goes, I like the striped look and am going to make a striped dog next. Maybe more stripes this time. Maybe several different color stripes. I think that’s a good plan for this weekend’s new project to start. That makes number twelve or thirteen works in progress. Good thing I like to multi-task!
