In the days leading up to Christmas I was busy working away on various 'yarn projects.' I finished the three Santa ornaments for my nieces and then I started on two kitty toys for my nephew Sam's cats. Then my sister Pam asked if I'd mind making a third toy for her to give to her boyfriend's cat, Smudge. So I ended up making three goldfish (with catnip centers, yum). They're crocheted and they actually worked up pretty quickly although I felt like I was getting down to the wire time-wise. The black string coming from the mouth of the goldfish is there so that you can dangle it in front of your cat to pique his/her interest. Hope it works. Here's the pattern I used.
I'm also getting back into recording. I'm currently working on a mystery. Have to get cracking on chapter 3 on this one tomorrow.
