Back in May 2017 (😱 yes I know, that long ago) I blogged about embarking on a new crochet project, the stitching of cat blankets for Cats Protection (Project Cosy Cats). I don’t stitch much in the summer as my hands are too hot to comfortably work the wool, so generally I stitch in cooler times, about an hour and half to two hours a day, two or three days a week, because doing too much can cause me to suffer cramp, or strain in my upper arms and shoulders, which impacts on my get-up-able-ness.
The yarn has been in my stash bag and from time to time I’ve (or my great neice) has dibbed in to select a fresh ball for a new blanket. Trying hard to find a different pattern for each blanket, although I am going to have to start doubling up. Today I stock-taked/stock-took the blankets I have already completed and the yarn stash bag (although there is also a large shoe box of yarn I haven’t tackled, yet). I have completed twelve blankets (pictured above), there is another needing edging (it needs a cotton blend of yarn, it’s an ideal
excuse reason to visit the wool shop when my BFF comes to stay) and I have started another, that’s number 14. Even so I’ve still yarn for another eight blankets, with what’s in the shoe box and the tail end scraps blanket, I’m about half way through my yarn.
I’ll have to contact Cats Protection to see if someone can come collect the done ones.
