Meow

cat ghanThis afghan (catghan) was made for my niece's daughter who is now 14 years old; so it's been around awhile. This was her baby ghan, made with good old Red Heart Yarn and crocheted from mostly granny squares. I wanted to put eyes and wiskers on at the time, I remember...but, didn't want anything she might put in her mouth and choke on so it remained a little bland. It needed a little repair. Not bad after all this time and many washings. Still looks pretty good. Definitely a testimony to the durability of Red Heart Yarn....acrylic washable yarn.

Just joined a meme (WIPW), fun idea. This was a work in progress in terms of the repair, so I'm counting it here.

  4. It is lovely. Really eye catching. Crochet is something I have always wanted to do but have never quite managed it.

  6. Thanks for giving out the Red Heart love. I like natural fibers as much as the next gal, but I'm a firm believer that, for some projects, acrylic is just a peachy choice. Look how well it's held up! Adorable, too!!

  14. How awesome that the catghan has made it through a whole childhood -- and even more awesome that she still loves it enough to bring it around for repair! Also, welcome to WIPW!

  15. That is such a cute blanket! I think blankets make the best baby gift and they do last (and are loved) well beyond the baby years!!
