Daily Photo Reprise: Mom’s Crochet Bag, 2011

Cookie nestles in her favorite bed.

Cookie nestles into several skeins of various yarns and a few odd scraps and test patches in the bag, nice and soft and warm.

I think of this as my crochet bag, the one I use for larger projects, but I’m apparently mistaken because every one of my cats through the years has immediately recognized it as a cat bed as soon as I open it.

Cookie will move quickly for something she wants, but she will spare no effort when she sees the crochet bag; I have seen her nearly run to get to it and crawl right on top of any cats who may already be in it. She doesn’t care how much yarn I pile on her while she sleeps; she acts as if she doesn’t notice and just nestles in farther.

This is in the absence of a finished crochet project, as in “The Best Bed”; I found a pile of this yarn for next to nothing and made several things of it!
