Rosie

We’ll be popping over to Tamworth at the weekend and will be bringing Rosie home with us. I’m so excited and can’t wait to see her again. We’re all ready for her and have everything she’ll need. I’ve cleared the bottom shelves of one of the bookcases to make space for some of her stuff.

Frodo and Sammie helped.

Cats030616-01_bWe’ve bought some of the food that Rosie is used to and have also bought her a few new toys. I know we have plenty of toys for the kitties, but I thought she should have some of her own. Also, I can’t resist buying stuff when we go to Pets at Home.

Sammie was very impressed by the stash and offered to keep an eye on it.

I also wanted to make her a quilt as I did one for the other two cats, but I’ve had a few problems with that, so decided to crochet her a blanket for now and do the quilt later. I thought the blanket would be nice for her to snuggle into on the way home.

I loved doing the Waffle stitch for one of the squares in the CAL, and thought it’d make a lovely snuggly blanket. I had some soft chunky yarn in my stash that was perfect.

Rosie's blanket-01Frodo was quite interested in it while I was taking a photo, but then he’s fascinated by anything that I do and loves to help.

This is a close up of the waffle stitch so you can see how lovely and textured it is, which makes it really squishy.

Rosie's blanket -02I’m sure there’ll be more photos once Rosie is here. Many more photos…
