Finished Cat Amineko
book but the pattern is available for free here. I stuffed his lower torso and lower leg paws with pellets wrapped in fabric so I hope they will stay put. This meant that he sits up well and has that nice bean bag heaviness. The book contains lots of helpful information on how to put your cat together.
Next on my stash-busting list is a Groovyghan. It looks like lots of fun but I am going to have to go out of my comfort zone and make it in really wintery shades as for some reason I have accumulated loads of them. It will genuinely 70s groovy in colours like burnt orange and bottle green, I think it will work but it might just be supremely ugly, we'll see. At any rate, I'm making serious inroads into my stash of acrylic now.
I would also like to point you in the direction of this Ravelry Group. Following up a post from Sarah I have decided to try and join in with Year of Projects, many of my favourite bloggers take part in this and I really enjoy those Sunday posts. I think my theme will be stash busting, certainly initially anyway. I really want that stash let loose on the world.
I've got a quiet weekend ahead of me so I'm hoping to be able to spend time looking at the lovely finished objects over at Tami's blog.
