Candystripe is a pattern on just about anything, including candy, which is striped in alternate pastel colours, usually pink and white.

The #writingchat writing cat (aka Scribbles) is candystriped.

#writingchat is a weekly twitter chat – about writing! It happens between 8 and 9pm, Wednesday evenings, and there's a different topic each time. To take part, just tweet using the hashtag. Everyone (and their cats, fictitious or otherwise) welcome.

Do you have anything candystriped? Or a cat? Or a candystriped cat?

Is that your time?

I remember when candystripe flannelette sheets were very popular - in the 60s or early 70s!

My foster cat is sort of candy striped, orange and paler orange. Does he count?

Definitely remember the candy-stripe flannelette sheets that Lindsey mentioned.

It always makes me think of the old pink and white candy striped nurse uniforms! Your little cat photo reminds me of Bagpuss.

Oh yes! Candy-striped sheets were de rigeur for all little girls way back when. Love your little puss, Patsy. Why do I always forget the twitter chat on Wednesday evenings?!
