Something crazy.

I did something crazy last night. It's something I haven't done for years, since I was much younger.

I CROCHETED! :)

I'm nearly always a knitter, although I did learn how to do very very basic crochet way back in the day. Last night, I saw this adorable pattern for a cat nest, and I knew it would be perfect for my cat. She loooves to squeeze into small cozy spaces for naps. After much googling and some helpful youtube videos, this...

nest-1

Turned into this...

nest-2

in the span of a couple of hours! I'm using a 9mm crochet hook. The green yarn is leftover Brown Sheep Burly Spun (from the first sweater I ever made!), and the gray is leftover Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick (from some Christmas gift slippers).

Okay, my hands are a bit sore this morning, and okay, I've now run out of bulky stash yarn to use. But the idea of a cozy cat nest is too adorable not to see it through! I'm stashdiving to see if I have some heavier worsted I could hold triple or something.

Excited! Cat Nest!! :)
