Crochet = Torture
Once upon a time, I opened a box at work to find this book. Previous attempts to learn how to crochet ended badly, but...
...this book has MICE to teach you! They make it look so easy.
I promised myself I would work my way through the book until I learned enough to make this...um...creature?
And so I began. I learned to do a basic, single crochet! Once I got rolling, I thought I'd practice by making a scarf. Fourteen inches later, I felt like I was being tortured, and that was the end of crocheting for me.
Not wanting to waste all that work, I schemed to turn my scarf into a toy.
What else but a cat?
You did know it was a cat, right?
Cartoon cats only have three toes on each foot.
