Crochet Testers Working Hard

Professional Crochet Testers

Good thing I finished this top at just the right moment! My crochet testers were ready to get to work.

Mr. Sunshine isn’t a typical tester, but I think his mom is trying to soften his man-cat edge a little. Cookie is always ready to participate in anything I do, and at one point I was crocheting around her. Apparently it passed their rigorous testing because they slept on it for several hours.

Of course, Kelly, my lead crochet tester, gave it a test when I began the project. If it had not passed her test at that point I certainly would not have continued.

What is it about cats and crocheted things?! And people who crochet and cats?! We must be a natural combination.

  • adorable…absolutely love seeing you kitty cat pics…they are so relaxed and zen about life…

    • Yes, they are always trying to teach me the ideal of non-attachment, meaning I shouldn’t develop attachments to anything because everything belongs to them.

  • I wish I could finish a crochet project around here. My two will not allow me to use yarn anywhere in their vicinity. It does make for a fun playtime though!

    • If the Fantastic Four didn’t have each other, I’d have to crochet outside! I kind of redirect them to play with each other when I need to, and that goes for a lot of other activities too.

  • I came her for the cat photo. What a cute pic. And your post is wonderful too. Thanks!

    • Thanks, Katie! Just glad I have my camera handy, even at moments like this.

    Bernadette, your stitches are even and your choice of colors is excellent. The cats are showing their approval. Everyone who does needlework needs at least one tester, and you are privileged to have several!

    • Susan, yes, everything is for them, even if I occasionally use it for another purpose after they are done with their rigorous testing!
