Crochet a cat!

Edith the crochet cat

Totally, totally off topic. One of my blogging friends posted a link the other day, to Hjärtekatten. ("Heart-cat") It's a voluntary effort to collect crocheted cats for kids with heart disease. Everyone who wants to crochets, from the same pattern, and adds a heart with a few stitches on it, then sends it to the organizer. The cats are then distributed to sick kids. Isn't that just wonderful? I thought so, and immediately started to crochet. I'm happy to say that my first kitty was mailed today, and I hope she can cheer up someone's day. I named her Edith, after my own little cat with a heart disease, who passed away several years ago. (You can read about her here and here.)

I'm pretty sure I'll be making a few more of these. If you crochet, it's a fun and easy project, so join up!

That's a very sweet idea. Your cat will make some poor kid very happy.
