Winter Focus

I’ve been feeling bad for the last couple of days, with swollen joints and energy-draining fatigue. Luckily, as I wrote in my previous post, I don’t have to work now, so I can allow myself to spend a few days snuggled up on the coach, with Stella on my lap, a mug of green tea, a book and some yarny project in my hands (not necessarily all at once of course).

Stella is my best medicine. She is such a loving, affectionate cat with the best purr ever! Every now and then she looks at me and very gently touches my face with her paw, as if trying to say “Don’t worry, you’ll be fine!”.

Ciri, her younger sister, is not affectionate at all, but she makes me laugh with all the mischievous things she does. I really can’t imagine my home without them!

Cats, crochet and some knitting

I am working on the warm alpaca/ wool blend throw/ blanket for my Mum. I decided to use simple, basic granny squares, as my Mum likes rather geometric shapes, and I think these warm colours will look great in her bedroom. If I could start over with different yarn, I’d only change this grey-ish dark beige, probably to some bright warm brown or terracotta. Other than that, I’m quite happy with this project and it’s not as boring as I thought it would be.

I also decided that this drawer organizer is much more comfortable than any typical craft/ knitting bag I could find (I try to ignore its colour too), and it helps me secure my work from ever-present cat hair. Well, except that I’m not the only one in the house who is happy  to use it…

Meet the girls! Yes, I’m a crazy cat lady

Sometimes I’d like to write about other things than crocheting here. Not necessarily about my daily life, don’t worry, but about things I find interesting, inspiring and important.

Like my cats, of course 🙂

Meet my two fluffy friends, Stella (the tabby) and Ciri (the black and white):
