Ok, I confess…. I had to do something for anyone who was visiting because of my crochet carrots and peas on this months’ Mollie Makes cover. I’m not a very good blogger, as you can see by the date of my last post, so don’t expect too many miracles from me in that department.
And here he is. I can’t say I’ve ever been tempted by the ‘cute small crochet’ thing before, but I had a sudden urge to make small animals the other day, and this cat was the result. I have to say that I’m quite pleased with the way he turned out.
He’s not all that big – about 7cm long, and he’s made using Garnstudio Drops Alpaca. I just LOVE the colours of this range. I’m doing a much larger project with it at the moment, and I guess that was one of the reasons for the sudden urge to produce something small – I needed to do something which wasn’t going to take me weeks and months to complete. I’ve also just finished a crochet nativity set for Simply Knitting magazine which will be published in Issue 87. I had to do some animals for that, and although I was particularly wary of the camel at first, it was fun and it gave me a taste for the animals thing.
I do have something in mind for Marmalade – or at least a copy of Marmalade because I can’t bear to part with him. It’s do with my latest geeky obsession of geocaching. Give me some time and I might explain in a later post, but don’t hold your breath…
