I mean, according to him, this just screams, "hey, this is a cat toy, right?"
Yes Kitty. You are correct.
I've been living in my new apartment for about six months now, but I haven't done a whole lot of decorating. Sure, there are a lot of rocks and a few creepy paintings here and there, but I'm starting to do a few more things here and there. A little while ago, I decided to use up some scrap yarn and ended up making a cute garland of sorts. And it was actually really simple and quick to make--
I started by making around two dozen little pom poms. All I did to make these was wrap some yarn around my fingers 30-40 times before cutting off the extra yarn.
I slipped the yarn off my fingers and tied the bundle together with another piece of yarn.
Once everything was tied together, I cut all the little loops apart on each side.
Then fluffed it up and repeated.
To make the garland-y part, all I did was crochet a mega-long string of chain stitches, which I measured against my wall to get the final length.
Finally, I laid the whole string out on the ground,laid out my poms where I thought they would look good, and tied them all on with separate little strings.Of course, Kitty appeared to lend his expertise, and I was ever so grateful. If you are a crafter and do not have a helper cat, you should really consider adopting one :]
And although it IS a very tempting cat toy, it's still hanging up on my wall! Succeeeeessss~
At first, I thought, "hey, this is almost Christmas-y" but then I realized that the colors go quite nicely with the magnificent throne of a patterned chair that you see here, so that is really quite satisfying.
And it was really just as simple as that! I'm slowly decorating the rest of my apartment, which mean there are a million things in progress, but nothing is done. I'll be sure to share whenever (if ever?) they get finished!
I'm also trying to figure out how else I can use up all of my odds and ends of yarn that I've accumulated. So if you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them!
