I have a bunch of projects posted over on my page, but then I saw this community the other day and knew I'd end up joining. 
So I'd like the take the time to say a quick hello to you all. Loving this community so far for its creativity and its amazingly talented members. 

Anywho, the piece below is my newly finished 3D origami Maneki Neko (Beckoning Cat). It's modular origami, where you stack module upon module to build them into something bigger. Well, mine ended up being a good 4000 pieces, give or take a few. It's about 12 inches tall, so definitely the biggest 3D origami I have ever made. Design is all mine, so I'm kind of proud, lol. v.v I know, shame on me.

I said I wouldn't dress up my pets, but I couldn't resist. I mean really, what's cuter than a cat in a sweater? Plus, if it snows this winter my cat can keep warm and will be able to stay outside longer. 

Anyhow, I found this great dusty rose colored yarn at a thrift store. I have no idea what its composition is, but I'm guessing that it's all acrylic or an acrylic blend. I got the pattern here <>

This is my first attempt and I did make an error. I accidentally added a couple of stitches just as I was starting the body (pattern starts at the ribbed turtle neck). The result was a dome effect which sits right at the base of the neck. On the bright side, if my cat ever develops a hunchback she can still wear her sweater!
