The pounce of crochet cats progresses

One thing about crocheting with yarn scraps is that as soon as you think you have finished with one ball of them, another ball (or bag) of scraps appears to take their place.

Which is where I found myself just as I finished the major crochet work on these three scrap yarn crochet cats, which are currently turned inside out so that I can:

a) weave in any ends that need to be woven in
b) pull forward any of the scrappy looking ends that got left behind

Obviously, I have some work still to do before I can turn them right side out, embroider their faces, stuff them, and attach the as-yet-to-be crocheted ears and tails, but none of that stopped me from getting a start on what will be the sixth scrap yarn crochet cat.

While I was sorting through my seemingly endless supply of balls of yarn scraps tied end-to-end, I came across a ball of scraps that had a slightly different flair to it than most of my yarn scrap balls, and I decided that of the three crochet cat bases I have to work with (bright yellow, pumpkin, and bright orchid), this particular set of scraps would best coordinate with the bright orchid cat, so hook in hand and yarn scraps at my side, I got to work, and in relatively short order, I had finished rounds 3-10:

This despite having spent a not insignificant amount of time sorting through a pile of yarn scraps and having collected some reds, pinks, and purples all in one place, thinking they might just make for a very interesting ball of scrap yarn to be used with the pumpkin crochet cat base:

I don’t really know where the is project will lead me, but in some regard it doesn’t really matter because as I note in Declaration one of my Crochet Manifesto: crochet is a journey, not a destination.
