New Crochet Cat In Town
I finished another crochet cat softie the other day, and this one has its eyes open and its mouth shut. Change of pace for me as is the yarn choice, I picked up this yarn because I wanted a challenge. This yarn is not cotton, it is acrylic. Click on the picture to see a scan of the yarn, or any of the pics to see them enlarged. This yarn is kind of fringed and not fringed.
So crocheting using this yarn was interesting, I’d be going along on the straight part and all of a sudden the tufts appeared and the going got slow. I never used this kind of yarn before so it was a real learning experience. And the cat is fuzzy in spots and not in other places. Very cute, almost like he’s lost some of his fur. When I had finished stuffing and sewing him together, his little face just cried out for open eyes and no mouth, another change of pace for me.
I have named this fuzzy critter Vanilla Fuzz. Sort of a mix between that old band’s name, Vanilla Fudge, and that one hit wonder from Dallas, Vanilla Ice. I think he came out pretty cute. I will probably make the sacrifice and list him on Etsy tonight if I can pry my hands off of him and force them to type the details for the Etsy listing. Who wants to adopt this little fuzz face?
