Sweet Cicely

September 2008: Two 'firsts' for this 8 inch high green and white cat, made with my favourite yarn! First of all, the only cat I've made with eyebrows - an addition suggested by my friend, Ann - and, secondly, the front paws are chunkier. I think both are an improvement - I'd be interested to hear any opinions. Also, having made several cats recently with a rather sad and wistful expression, I decided on a happier face for this one!

A close-up to show the eyebrows. The whiskers have practically disappeared into the yellow background!

Dear Jane,
I'm a little late for this post but it's better late than never :-)
I must say I like the expression on the face of this cat, it looks happy! Also I like the paws and the nails look real.
Way to go dear Jane!
Happy cats rule!

Thank you for the nice post dear Gaston - I'm glad you like the new feet! Yes indeed, happy cats rule and purrrrrr as loudly as possible!

I like this one a lot. It's so expressive. Anyone that has ever owned a cat knows they are very good at expressing themselves.

It's adorable with the whiskers and the eyebrows. Your attention to detail was not lost on this fan!
