My cat is a little thief. Every blanket I make she thinks is hers. I had a bag of mill ends from Spotlight and thought I’d make a corner to corner baby blanket to add to my Etsy store (which i desperately need to re open) So as i’m crocheting away cat comes over to investigate. I tell her to go away and she does. But next morning I find her sleeping on the blanket. She dragged it from the lounge to her sleeping space! It’s no good to sell now so I let her use it. However, it’s not finished! She won’t let me finish it! Finally I manage to distract her and finish it off for her. She loves it. It’s really thick so maybe it’s the texture, anyway it’s very well used. Over the weekend I managed to steal it back so I could wash it cause it stunk! It took two days of soaking and drying for it to be useable now. This cat better not steal another blanket.
I love working with bright rainbow colours, anything bright and happy is awesome to me. Sometimes, however, I need to make a more manly coloured blanket. I wanted a rainbow styled blanket, but without the pinks and purples. So i put together this;
