I’m starting to feel glad that I’m quick to promise people crocheted gifts – it forces creativity out of me somehow. The other friend, whom I promised to crochet for, wanted something with a cat theme. So, I went for nyan cat!

It’s a tissue-pack cover!

I was running out of grey yarn towards the end and had to decrease like crazy to finish the head >.< Despite it all, I’m very pleased with this. I’m starting to feel quite reluctant to give it away! lol.
