Two Door Snakes

I'm still on my mission to use up old wool so this week I have been crocheting draught stoppers or door snakes. It seems funny to be reading the blogs of those in the Northern Hemisphere talking about Spring and Summer, when here it is starting to cool down and my mind is turning to woolly things.

These are filled with an inner made of plain homespun and filled with kitty litter so they have a nice weight to them. I made one of plain trebles (or double crochet if you are in the US) and one in a simple shell pattern.

Sugar is lying on the spare bed in my study waiting for me to finish up here, and of course, she has taken ownership of one of the snakes. I may need to crochet her a neck/chin roll!

Your dog is so cute. Looks like you are going to have to make her one of her own.

Great idea using cat litter in the snakes. I'm going to refill one now, I was advised to use a block of wood wrapped in quilt wadding(batting), which is less than ideal!

Loving your crochet mats wish I could crochet, tried it once years ago, wasn't impressed with the result! Perhaps now is the time to try again.
