Several months ago Momma Cat got a request from her friend, Amanda Cat, to crochet her an egg apron. What the heck is an egg apron, you might ask? It is an apron, in this case, crocheted, with a lot of little pockets for egg gathering. It looks like this.

It seems that Amanda Cat has a few chickens now, and she thought it would make her life a little easier if she had something to put her eggs in that would also allow her to have both hands free.
Momma Cat had several projects to finish before she was able to start on the apron. But she finally went to JoAnn's and bought some sugar and cream crochet cotton and got busy!
Things were going along swimmingly, as Momma Cat worked on the apron while she watched football with Daddy Cat. She got to the point where she was almost finished when she notice something odd........

Anyway, Momma pulled out all of those stitches, then started over on the opposite side of the apron. It took her a couple of days to redo it, but she finished the apron yesterday!
|The Egg Apron and I|
PS If you've never read a book called, "The Egg And I", by Betty MacDonald, you should! It's a very funny story about a man and his wife who start an egg farm up on the Olympic Peninsula after World War II. There's a movie by the same title too, starring Claudette Colbert, and Fred MacMurry. Momma Cat much prefers the book, but the movie is also very entertaining!!!
