More Tunisian Crochet and the Critters I Love

Tunisian Crochet is something I'm liking!  Usually, I avoid variegated yarn for all projects except dish cloths, but the Easter-like colors drew me into this one.  I have to admit that the variegated yarn exceeded my expectations.  There's more info about this project here. http://www.ravelry.com/projects/mtmercyme/tunisian-crochet-washcloth-2/photos?source=more

The second Tunisian Crochet project is a placemat.   It is completed in the honeycomb stitch and has a single crochet border in the variegated yarn.  Please try not to notice that this hasn't been blocked.  You can find more information here:   http://www.ravelry.com/projects/mtmercyme/tunisian-crochet-placemat

I need to make five more placemats but I am seriously thinking of sewing placemats instead.  It's faster and I won't cringe when they get baptized in butter or spaghetti sauce!

We got a new family member last weekend.  He's a very black cat whom we've named Oswald -- Ozzy for short.  We're all in love.  Chloe, our Jack Russell terrier wants to be in love, but doesn't quite have the knack for playing with a kitten.  Oh my, hopefully they'll be great friends soon.
