Dumpling Cats

I made these Dumpling cats for my sister on Christmas. The pattern for the pink one is free and can be found here on ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/dumpling-kitty

The small minty colored cat was a modified version of the pattern. Here is the pattern for the small kitten (it has not yet been tested so let me know if it doesn’t work)

Micah

Yesterday was a sad day because my cat, Micah died (pictured in the lower left of the first picture holding his brother, and the second picture). He was such a crazy cat with loads of personality. He loved his brother so much and Camelot slept with Micah in the box on his last day. Micah purred up until the last two days and he was always happy. He lived a fairly long time for having some health issues and would be about 10 years old. Micah definitely lived all his 9 lives. He is a lap cat that showed no favoritism. He would give everyone an equal opportunity to pet him, or play with him. I am going to look after his brother like he always did, and I hope to see him again someday.

He died January 26, 2017.

Crochet American Curl Cat

 

this is an American Curl Russian Blue mixed cat. He is completely crocheted besides the navy blue parts of his ears, his polymer clay nose, and his cabochon eyes. Believe it or not the yarn I used is completely normal and not fuzzy yarn. After playing around with the loop stitch and cutting it, I realized that it sometimes would unravel my projects so I modified it in a sort of combined way with the chain stitch. I then cut the ends and brushed the cat. “Nimbus” the cat is so cute!
