I’ve been very busy the past couple of days working on crocheting this cat nest for Chester. It took so long and took up so much yarn and it didn’t turn out exactly how I wanted. I shoved Chester in it last night and lured him in it with food in hopes that he’d want to go in it, but he casually walked right back out after all of my attempts. Well, when I came home today and relaxed on the couch, I looked over and saw my cute baby nestled inside his nest 🙂
He’s just so darn cute.
Crochet has been a therapy for me, in a way. Because I have OCD, I find it very difficult to sit still and just relax and watch TV. The evenings are usually never relaxing for me because I’ll sit down to “relax” and then get up as soon as I see something out of place or if something crosses my mind that I feel needs to be done. Once I put one thing in order, I instantly see another thing that’s out of place and have to fix it too. This goes on and on and on until I’ve basically cleaned the entire house. This happens almost every night. It is exhausting, but I can’t relax or even sleep if the house is a “disaster” or at least in my mind.
Now, in the evenings, I can crochet and make beautiful things while actually sitting down and relaxing and unwinding with K and Chester. My hands and mind are occupied on the task at hand rather than bouncing all over the house trying to make order of things. This little cat nest was probably the biggest project I took on and it took me about 4 days to complete. Needless to say, I need some new projects to work on.
I am thinking about adding crochet men’s ties to my store. I just have to figure out how I will do it, but I think it would add some nice variety. I love crochet ties and really want to learn how to make them. I’m sure K would also appreciate them 🙂 Let me know what you think or just give me ideas for new projects to add to my store by using the contact form below.
