The Best Bed

The best bed is something mom just finished.

…is a crochet project mom just finished. Just after I added the last piece of fringe to my new crocheted shawl, Cookie stepped onto it, rolled it up into a comfortable pile, and took a nap.

Professional Crochet Tester Cookie is hard at work, as you can see. Not only must my crochet projects be tested while I work but also when they are done. And repeatedly. And by as many cats as possible.

It also must be assured that no item I’ve created be used until it has cat hairs embedded in its weave.

This shawl is now ready to meet the public. I am so grateful for all my assistants.

    indeed, my girls have instructed me that no outfit or article of clothing or accessory is complete without cat hairs. they say that way i match their beautiful furs… 🙂

    Beautiful yarn! Made even better with cat hair, of course!

      Cynthia, you know how they are with these things–I looped it over my shawl hook, but I’ll have to put it right on when I wear it, no putting this one down.

    Cookie is doing the very best in making sure all is ok with the shawl. I would just love to be able to just curl up and do the exact same thing. Looks beautiful and very soft! 😉

    Absolutely! The cat-hair weave is one of the most luxurious and sort after amongst the cognoscenti!

    As I once heard, “No outfit is complete….until it has cat hair”. So it goes with projects, too. Lovely and diligent assistance you have!
