The Name (BST*)
Pussy Pink Afghan
This is the first second thing I made once I resumed crocheting again. At about this time, I was going through another round of recovery – third? fourth? Actually, the picture was from an acquaintance’s – discovering lately, my definition has changed – wedding shower party. I have always felt maladjusted, and had discovered my crochet, as a means of being present, but not really seen. It’s still my first defense. Sorry, I was reminiscing.
The name comes from Tania’s desire to include “Pussy Pink” into her afghan. Having no familiarity with “pussies or pussys,” I incorporated a range. As my luck would have it, the hottest pink was the one she had meant, the same color that I happened to – if I remember correctly – run out of, the manufacturer had discontinued.
Dimensions: approximately 4 x 6 feet
This afghan was created for my friend Tania Noval, who had requested something in, or with, “pussy pink.” Having no familiarity with pussies, much less their color, my interpretation was something along the lines of Hot Pink.
At this time, I had just resumed crocheting as a means to pass the time of a four-hour commute to, and from, work.

I had biked over to the neighborhood Walmart, bought a plastic hook – because they looked cool – and some assorted acrylics in pink, plus white.
