Sleepy Saturday (FO: Catoosa)

This early April is a world of slowing down and gearing up:
the HPKCHC [Rav] has a break month and the fourth annual Knit & Crochet Blog Week is less than two weeks out.

So until the madness bursts, we're laying low...  making shapes out of crayons and eating Goldfish crackers and knitting along on a scraptastic modular WIP that's almost four years old.
Punkin has titled this photo "Minnie Mouse and crayons and Mickey Mouse"

There's also a small squishy toy, but it's not hanging out with us:
Moby the Whale [Rav] by Raynor Gellatly; knit with less than 10 yards of Lorna's Laces Swirl Chunky in colorway 34 Tahoe
The pattern was written for DK or worsted weight, but I've upsized it for maximum grabability.  I've named her Catoosa after Catoosa, Oklahoma's famed Blue Whale along Route 66.  She's currently winging her way to Kansas City to join the well-appointed whale-themed nursery of a teleworking colleague's kiddo.
