Wednesday Craft Group - knitted cats

We did a couple of small projects today; for the knitters or those keen to start ~ Cat and Kittens
"...when she is angry she growls,
when she is lonely she howls.
When breakfast is nearly hers,
she paces about and purrs..."
from the poem A Kitten's World by Lea Wills aged 11

These cats were made with one of the numerous animal knitting patterns from the book Toymaking with Children by Freya Jaffke.

and for those who say they can't knit (or didn't feel like it) Lavender hearts - stuffed with fresh flowers - oh the smell was divine...and come to think of it those gathered around that table were very calm.
