The Cat is Chasing the Bird

Cat chases Bird! Corney but that's what came to mind as I was posting these pictures.  The yellow cotton washcloth with cat design is one I'll make again, but I won't exactly follow the pattern this time.  I think the cloth is a bit too small and the edge curls more then I like.  The pattern only has an edge of 3 knit stitches before you get into the pattern and I don't think that's adequate to get it to lay nicely.  Likewise it only has 4 rows of garter stitch top and bottom, and that doesn't seem like enough to me either.  So will be making adjustments the next time I make this one.  It's Kate the Cat Cloth by Rhonda K. White's patternThe shape however I think is good.  Sometimes with these shapes made of counting purls and garters the pattern isn't real noticeable, this obviously is.  I'm also wondering about doubling it to make a nice big square for say the center of an afghan?
Blue Jay, the name of this ghan...thus cat chasing bird, lol.  Well in real life the Blue Jay would probably go after a small cat, as they're very aggressive birds.  You can see there's still a few ties left.  I have 3 rows yet to crochet together then work on the border, launder and block before this will be ready to be donated.  With a busy week scheduled, fingers crossed I can show this to you next as a completed project.  And if that happens, it will be #10 on my list of YOP ghans to make from donated squares.

  2. Oh yeah, the design is a great one but I agree, more space around the design and I bet it will lay better and showcase the design better.
    I love your bluejay afghan. I didn't know you were supposed to block afghans? I never have, I can't imagine how as mine are al pretty large. Oh well! LOL!
    Love your work!

  3. Sandy, you are such a faithful blogging friend! I do miss blogging, but I'm so busy it's hard to find the time...how do you do it? Between laundry, shopping, cleaning, cooking and exercising ...and visiting my Dad (who is in ln term care now) and working pretty much full time...don't have an extra time. You know when your pictures disappear on your blog you have been away too long. Fixed them last weekend (hope they are still there). One of these days I'll have to post again...

  5. Now that takes talent. I don't know that I could even conceptualize such an artistic project with yarn.

  7. Thank you for visiting me. You are never a bother. I have been checking blogs all the time. I just never no what to say. I have been down in the dumps a little and working on trying to come out of it. I have been working on some crochet photo props for my brother. I love your Kitty square and the blanket you put together. You are amazing.
