Here, Kitty Kitty!

Make Someone Happy!
Entertain the kitties!
Crafting whimsical toys or shapes can brighten our day and giving them away brightens others', too. We like the idea of using scrap yarn to make cat toys, like this knitted Feline Dim Sum or crocheted Twirly Jingle Kitty Toys. Crocheters may also want to browse amigurumi patterns at Amigurumi Today. We fell in love with the super cute Happy Jellyfish. We then went searching for knitted stuffies patterns and found a Giant Rainbow. There are a ton of fun patterns and ideas, let your fingers do the browsing! (ps. Wendy reports that small children also enjoy cat toys - or at least her grandkids do!)

Featured Yarn and Pattern Catona is a mercerized cotton yarn that comes in a variety of colors. We carry it in 10g, 50g, and 100g balls. The minis are perfect for when you need a little bit of color and most crafters use the 50g balls for projects that require multiple colors. The 100g balls are available in white, off-white, and black for projects that need large amounts of neutral colors. We love the idea of making a 'paper chain' because it's a great way to practice your skills and make something fun - you should be able to make one link with a 10g mini-ball of Catona. We think making smaller links and turning them into a bracelet or necklace would be cute, too! You can even get a multi-pack with 109 minis!

The Tip Jar
Keeping your multi-colored projects from bleeding into each other:
Instead of soaking your multicolored project, put it under running water instead of soaking it.
Or, you can steam-block it with an iron. (Be careful not to touch the iron to the fabric, you just want the fiber to bloom from the steam.)
All classes are currently on hold, due to the San Antonio & Bexar County joint Stay Home/Work Safe order.
