Getting back into the knitting groove reminded me of a knit project that I worked on earlier this year that I haven't shared here yet: a knit kitty cat!
I wanted to use up some spare yellow cotton yarn that I had in my craft stash, and I wanted to make a toy cat for the baby who will be coming into our lives (through adoption) at some point sooner or later. I googled around a bit for ideas and found this cute little pattern to base my project on.
And here's how he turned out:
He's got a bit of a wonky look to him, but I still think he's kind of sweet. And it was good for me to let go of my perfectionist tendencies and just let a project evolve for a change!
Meow! Tune in here again in a couple days to see another baby-related project: the beat-up thrift store dresser that I made over into a changing table for our nursery!
