You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.'

You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

Eleanor Roosevelt

It all started as a bad joke. For my retirement, my friend gave me a book of knit and crochet patterns for Cat Hats.  We all had a good laugh  at the absurdity of it all and moved on. Or so I thought.  I mean really, hats for cats?  I don't even have a cat. I have a few friends however that do and a couple who even treat their  friendly felines like family. It was one such friend who first requested that I make a hat for her kitty, I complied; little did I know that it would be so popular. It seems that for some people dressing up those furry feline friends and posting the  photos on social media for all to see is a popular past time. Well,  you know how it goes, one becomes two and two becomes three and so on and so on and now I'm hooked.  Sure I told myself it was all  an attempt to use up my yarn stash but truth be told I have become fixated with these silly "CAT HATS". I love making them and love seeing the cats wearing them.  At this pace though I will get nowhere fast in my attempt to FINALLY FINISH  all my incomplete projects. These tiny caps don't use much yarn so my stash isn't shrinking as I had hoped. As they say....

SO today I add  this little shark to the collection of "kitties lidders"   that I have created and if I do say so myself 
George sports the "fin"quite well.
