Filling in the rainbow

Yesterday, when I was not running errands or working on scrap yarn crochet cats in various phases of completion, I was busy tying together more of the myriad yarn scraps that are part of my yarn stash/home decor.

While I have designated bags for the yarn scraps, random bits migrate on their own to all parts of the house and all parts of my life.

I find them on top of tables, underneath tables, in the pockets of my clothes and the bottom of my purse. It seems, at times, that they are everywhere, and yesterday, I made a concerted effort to at least corral them into somewhat tidier balls of yarn, and I met with some success.

Not only did I finish with the Scooby Doo yarn scraps I have sorted so far:

I was also able to finish the flamingo palette yarn scraps I had collected in one place:

Which still left me with hundreds of yarn scraps to be attended to, but I decided to set them aside for the time being and instead focus on the still unfinished rainbow pounce of scrap yarn cats.

Most of my efforts was on the Red Heart Super Saver Accent paradise cat:

I had the partial skein of yarn that I was going to use for the scrap cat face within reach, so I decided I had better work on it while it was handy.

Then, needing something eminently portable while I was running errands, I took the shocking pink and Delft crochet cats along and turned them inside out and began weaving in ends where necessary, and pulling any ends that ended up on the interior of the scrap cat forward to the exterior.

By the time errands were done, I had pretty clearly made more progress on the Delft cat than the shocking pink:

Then today, as the afternoon came to a close, I almost finished crocheting the body of the paradise scrap yarn crochet cat:

With so much progress on the various scrap cats representing different parts of the spectrum, I decided to line them up in the late (very late) afternoon sun to get a photo of them so I could get a better sense of the progress I was (or was not) making on the rainbow pounce of scrap cats:

Each crochet project is its own adventure -- a journey of hands and mind, and I am curious to see where these cats lead me.
