You may be thinking what any of this has to do with my cat and bags. My cat LOVES bags and boxes, anything really that he can hide in. As far as I have learned from the internet this is a fairly common cat trait. Anytime I bring home something in a paper bag he immediately tries to get into it, even if it still has groceries in it. Anytime anyone else comes to the house with a paper bag, he will immediately try to get into it. It is a constant daily struggle to keep him from trying to get into a cardboard box we keep for books to go into the attic.
When I saw this on Pinterest I knew I had to make it: Cat Nest Pattern. I just love this and adore the thought of making it up for him to snuggle inside. I have decided that I will probably use 2 or 3 strands of DK yarn together to make this and see how it looks. I am hoping this will be a fairly quick project but I'm not the most proficient with a crochet hook so I guess we will see how it goes.

Please do check back in for the gridding tutorial later in the week and I will hopefully have a post on this little nest very soon as well.
