Aunty Nin’s Antimacassar

12 Jan


My dear Aunty Nin loved to crochet and she made me some antimacassars. I’ve had them for decades and they’re still going strong. I don’t need to use them on the backs of the chairs as men don’t wear macassar any more so I drape them over the chair seats to protect them from a more modern menace, the cats, who think they have a divine right to sleep anywhere they like. There’s Sparta, the psychokitty, sprawled on one, glaring at me balefully as I scribbled.

    I had no idea what an antimacassar was! Learned some new stuff from you today. I like the indication of knitted fabric, and kitty too of course.

  4. Loved the picture of the cat – I also have a psycho cat who usually has mad moments in the wee small hours and expects me to join in so I just let him get on with it whilst I try my best to grab a little more sleep!!
