Why Crochet?

This is why:

Our other cat, Kippy, needs some extra lovin' these days. She's missing Barney as much as we are. And I needed something different to do. Didn't want to knit the sadness I was feeling into the Clapotis I've been working on.

I used to crochet years and years ago. And figured this would be a good time to practice the stitches.

This cat blankie isn't going to be best looking thing I've ever made. It's a combination of all kinds of crochet stitches. There's no pattern in mind. And I think I'm even making up some stitches.

But Kippy doesn't care. She just wants to snuggle into it.

She looks so cute in her blanket. I have a soft spot in my heart for tuxedo kitties.

Oh, I like Kippy. I'm glad she has that warm little blanket to snuggle in.
Thinking of you.

That's a great story about how Kippy came to live with you. She looks like she's gaining great comfort from her new blanket.
