Tigger (aka Tigger the TatCat) is just such an obliging lace model (as you can see from my profile pic.) Pardon the wonky bits in the lace, not all of it has been blocked yet.
Truth is, like most cats, if it's warm enough, still enough, and not too much effort to get to, it'll get sat on. Me tatting provides pretty much all of that. However, Tigger has trained himself to ignore shuttles. Unfortunately our other cat still gets an insane gleam in his eye if he's on my lap and one dangles within batting distance (or I'm two-shuttle tatting and one gets dropped on him).... I have to face him the other way and pat him 'til he forgets about it if I want to keep my lapwarmer. =)
This pattern looks so good on Tigger...would lacy cat coats catch on do you think? =)
I've probably messed it up for using for a show now, but it was worth to see that "I look GOOD in this" look on that furry little face. It had some accidental scorch marks on it from the initial blocking that I had to wash out (grumblemumblestupidstuffupgrumble), so it's not really show worthy anymore anyway (washing's a bit of a no-no for shows down here).
That's it for now.... Hopefully I'll have one of my other UFO hankies that I've been too lazy to stitch up done soon. =)
