It’s been a bit quiet from me as I’m still fighting off the flu/lurgy/plague, but I have been hanging on in there with the power of cats. I’m aiming for 10 for the Alzheimer’s Research charity project to start with. Here’s an update, and a look at how some incredibly holey, wonky and imperfect squares can still be turned into kitties.
Started by customising cats I’d made to make them more individual. Little Sky was the first cat I made (kitten sized crochet).
Filled in her eyes with yellow, gave her some embroidered flowers and a blossom hat.
Socks was crochet cat #2.
Socks gets a Cat in the Hat style hat, and a scarf to match.
Ginger (crochet cat #3) is quite sparkly aready.
So I just gave him a contrasting bow tie in sparkly yarn.
First go at knitting, kitten size. Look at the state of it. But it turned into…
…little Sprout here. She gets a collar with a bell, and a bow.
The knitting on this one is even worse. Holey and wobbly edged. It became…
… Mystic the witchy cat (knit cat #2). She has glow in the dark embroidered stars.
Feeling in need of something silly and fluffy and cheerful so time for some candy floss pink eyelash yarn! (Plus the fluff hides a multitude of sins.)
The fluffy squares became Princess Candlyfloss Sparkle (crochet cat #4) with a purple sparkly tutu and crown.
Quick reminder – if you want to join in, see the Kilometer of Kittens & Cats Facebook group for more info. And you can download the knitting, crochet, and sewing patterns here.
I have a few other things I need to catch up the blog on too, but I need enough energy and brain power to take pics and write. Coming soon, I hope!
