With Cables. Where have we seen this before?
And it's 7 inches from hem. Only ... (sigh) ... 8 more inches before I can start shoulder decreases!
You'll note, though, that it's about 3 inches longer than last week, and since I'm doing both sides, that's 6 inches in a week. This is starting to sound naughty.
What else am I doing? Making cat beds with acrylic yarn.
So I'm doing the only thing a person can do in such a situation. Make cat beds ... and change offices.
Here is the nearly finished project. It is now outside in one of the stray cat boxes.
I find that simple crocheting is very soothing. Just a half-double stitch, over and over again, pausing to replace the yarn when a skein gets used up. And for some reason, cats love these things.
Nice to see them making such logical use of a 3-tier cat perch.
Happy Fiber Arts Friday! Oh, and just a reminder -- this is my 98th post, and when I get to 100, I'm having a drawing. I'll be giving away a little goody box with a handknit pair of BFL slippers, and a few other goodies! I really appreciate all of you who read my blog and take the time to comment on my efforts. It makes it really worthwhile for me, and it inspires me to try ever-more-difficult patterns, knowing I have good back-up if I need it!
