Meet "Caty"

Hi Ladies and gents, (if there are any)

So I think most of you who follow me can see that I had visitors over the holidays and it was "Oh So Fun"! I had one granddaughter for a week and we had so much fun. We played with all the Santa toys and watched lots of Christmas DVDs and played in the snow/ice. We went boot skating, which is just what it sounds like. Little Miss loved skating on the ice in the park and cracking through and twirling around. It was a special time. We went to see "The Muppet Movie". It's so much fun to see that type movie with a little person. The giggles and smiles are priceless. She did get a little squirmy toward the end, so she keep my lap cosy the last 20 minutes. Grandchildren are the best!

So anyway, while we were playing and drawing and coloring, Little Miss asked if I could knit so she could watch. Well, I don't have to be asked twice, so up to my sewing room we went and "A" picked out colors of yarn. She wanted to design her own "Caty". So what is a "Caty", let me show you. It is something that has been part of her life for 5 years now and the two are inseparable. I believe I bought her, her first, but there have been many more!! "Caty" is a beloved rainbow caterpillar. The two go everywhere together but not to school. Caty has to stay at home and wait for her. SO "Caty" was so much part of "A's" life that a year ago I knit up a Caty scarf, which I hadn't seen for a year. When they came up I was reunited with scarf Caty and she had held up well. Little Miss had a different idea in mind and thought she needed another Caty, so that is where the colors of yarn come in to the picture.

So let me introduce "Caty" to you.

See how loved she is!

One more CLOSE UP!  Many a nose has been wear off or loved off!

Here is Scarf Caty.

And New Scarf Caty designed by Little Miss

She loves her pom poms!
