Did you know that my daughter is also a crochet designer? She doesn’t publish patterns often, but I am always thrilled when she does- and in case you hadn’t guessed already, today’s pattern was designed by my amazingly talented daughter!
If you’ve been reading my blog posts and emails recently, you know that my daughter moved out almost 2 years ago, all of our elderly shih tzus passed away and we brought a new shih poo puppy into our hearts and home earlier this year.
But you may not have known that we added even more babies to the family this year when my daughter adopted my 2 grandkitties- Apollo and Osiris.
The boys are littermates and were adopted from a local cat rescue that takes in pregnant mommas and gets them and their kittens through the pregnancy and infancy phases, then finds loving homes for them! They are so adorable, and although my husband and I are terribly allergic to cats and have not physically met our grandkitties, we do enjoy all of their photos.
And if you want to follow their Auntie Ruby Sue, you can follow her on Instagram as well.
The Kitty Catiolis are a fun, quick way to use up scrap yarn. You only need a few yards to make one Catioli and can whip one up in just a few minutes! They look like toy raviolis when complete, hence the name “Kitty Catiolis”. When my daughter sent me a picture of Apollo playing with his Catiolis and told me she was planning to write up the pattern, I was so excited- because I knew Pet Appreciation Month was coming up and this would be the perfect time to share her latest design with you!
Apollo and Osiris absolutely LOVE their Kitty Catiolis and have many of them in a whole variety of colors. I wonder if Ruby Sue might like me to make her a “pupioli” over the weekend….?
