Got my CAT PAC for July from Jacqui in Australia today. YAY! My horizons are expanding, because she sent me:

in eyelash yarn (I’m pretty sure) which I’ve never seen before! Here’s a closeup:

It must have been tough to work with that yarn! It’s actually a lime-green and olive-green combo, which isn’t showing up well in the picture.

Then she also sent me:

A teddy bear tea towel with a pastel blue crocheted towel topper. Here is a closeup of the topper:

I also got:

This is a pin cushion meant to be worn on a finger (my thumb, here) for sticking a couple of pins into when you need your hands free. Isn’t that a smart idea? The base is a cola bottle cap.

Because the PAC came from Australia she sent me:

The koala is attached to a keyring.

You must take a look at Jacqui’s collection of hooks (630 at last count, I think), as well as some of the amazing work she does.

There are two more CATs to go this year. CAT is the Crochet-A-Thon monthly chat, which is also an opportunity for members of Crochetlist to pledge crocheted items for the charities selected for the month. It is a 24-hour marathon chat and we have crocheters logging in from Australia, USA, Britain, Germany, India and other places.
