Sammy's Scrappy Cat Mat is Done!

Once I started this project, I just couldn't put it down!  I couldn't wait to see what color came up next in the ball.  You can read the background this project here.  You'll have to scroll to the end of the post.

I was about three inches short when the entire ball of scraps was used up, so I just cut pieces from some other yarns in my stash to finish it off. 

Here is the side #1:

And here's side #2:

And here is the kitty pic for the day.  Echo has to supervise whenever someone is doing the dishes (usually DH - yeah for me!).  He hangs his paws over the edge and just watches everything intently, but never tries to touch anything.  This is him this morning while I was doing dishes.

Love your dishwasher helper :-) And the crocheted mat too. I bought a skein of Sugar and cream today. I'm going to see if I can remember how to crochet and make one. Thanks for the inspiration.
