here, kitty kitty

There hasn’t been much crafting going on around here as of late, but that doesn’t mean it ain’t happening at all! From the galaxy’s slowest crocheter (that would be me) I present Florence* the amineko (aka crocheted cat):

Fast friends

* Florence is the name of the woman whose house we are buying. I think she moved into a nursing home or something.
The crocheted kitty pattern is in, what else, a Japanese craft book. The ISBN is 4391130122.

    Kawaii!
    Molly sent me several of those Japanese creature crochet books and I have yet to sit down and figure out the patterns, although I did crochet many years ago. Was it difficult to follow the pattern? Lately, I have to attention span of a gnat.

  8. Tanya says:

    Too cute. I love her purply color. Perhaps Zira (my felted monkey) should come visit her some time soon.

    Love Flo…..I’ve yet to try amigurumi…but it’s on my list!
    Very cute!

  12. Jess says:

    That is so cute! My first cat was called Florence (but she had rickets and was mad, so your Flo is cuter).

  13. Marg says:

    Too cute for words! I think she was well worth the wait.

  14. Ellizabeth says:

    love love love! I think I could figure out the pattern. Crochet is a very organic thing, you can make it up as you go.

  15. Heidi says:

    I love it too. But then I have a thing for cats.
    Way to capitalize on the home of an old lady. That’s what we did too.

  16. Jenn says:

    Adorable kitty!

  17. katie says:

    Oh! What a cute cat! I just love her–she reminds me a little of a kittenish sock monkey.

  18. Stephanie says:

    hooray for Flo!
    My cat is still in pieces…and I think I have you beat as the worlds slowest crochet-er :D
    well done :)

    You are just way too cute and clever! I found your blog through Marie Irshad, and I’ll definitely be back. Where in the Bay Area are you? I’m in the South Bay. :) I’m a Peets addict too.

    That has GOT to be one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen. You are too, too clever. I must find my crochet hook immediately.

  23. Jane says:

    I just love that picture ‘hangin’ around’. I think a crocheted creation could perhaps dangle from every lampshade in one’s house.

  24. yuvee says:

    That’s super cute!!

  25. lizette says:

    Love this neko!

  26. mmj says:

  28. Joyce says:

    wow it’s so cute….
    I just made one little chick for my son,but it’s not as cute as this .

  29. Aimee Roo says:

    i must learn to crochet such cute things, i am trying, but reading patterns is all new to me! you did a great job!
