Cat Bits

I've been taking a break from knitting to crochet....
... and I've found that while I can crochet reasonably quickly, and I love the fact that there's only one loop to keep track of, crocheting hurts my hand :( I don't know if it's the way I hold the hook, or if the hook handle is simply too small...

In any case, I have completed all the bits and pieces for a Matcha/Skimima/Flo & José - like kitty...and finishing syndrome has set in. What is it with finishing that makes me want to procrastinate and set it aside for later? Most of the hard work is done...all that is left is to put all the pieces together, after all!

Greetings: had any spam lately. Tonight we're having bacon. Just as bad maybe worse. Now the real and true reason for this comment is to say: if the hook is too small build up the handle with polymer clay. Wrap the clay sheet around the hook and smooth it out. roll until smooth back at manufartors directions metal hook and all. Don't put polymer clay on plastic as some plastics aren't compatable. SWe would not want you to get carpel tunnel syndrome. it sucks.

Someone told me once that not finishing things is a form of procrastination which is a form of needing to control everything and not being able to let something go or accept change. I poked her in the eye with my knitting needle.
Done or not, the cat is cute, so very cute. In the photo she looks like paper dolls, ready to be cut out and assembled.
Hey, have a great weekend,
