Knitting With A Cat..

I've said on many blog comments that I don't seem to have a problem with The Meezer going after yarn, and other than one 10.5 dpn that has gone missing (and I'm pretty sure is in a dark corner that will only be found when I move) she's always left the needles alone.

I rarely pay attention to her when I'm knitting, so this morning as I worked on my sis-in-law's sock on my Harmony circulars, while watching Sunday Morning, I only vaguely was aware of her movement out of the corner of my eye...

And then suddenly - WHAM! - I realized she was at my Posy Sock Sack, with MY Trekking socks inside...and there was a dangling thing that was whipping around...!

On closure inspection?
One chomped-upon Hiya Hiya bamboo circular...(sigh)
And I really don't want to buy another one right I pulled out the nail file and sanded away. It's smoother at least

(and I apologize that my limited skills as a photographer only produced these sad photos...)
The Meezer wasn't impressed by my stern talking-to...Why don't you find my tearstrip and then I'll leave your dangly things alone?

(sigh) So much like a recalcitrant child...

If it wiggles like a cat toy, it IS a cat toy.

Naughty girl Meezer, but nice save Mom. I actually did something similar after one of the boys grabbed a casein circular. It's still in business, though I have done a better job of keeping them out of reach.

Don't you hate it when they suddenly discover knitting? Maybe now that she's had her needle encounter, she'll be satisfied...

Yummy! Nothing tastier than a bamboo circular.

One of my cats chewed on the cable of a knit picks harmony circular once, almost all the way through! I was able to temporarily fix it, but then I ended up snapping one of the needles, so it was a complete lost cause.

Ms.Mitz (feeling better but not 100% yet) doesn't give a hoot about yarns. Mr. C, now that's another story. He goes WILD when he sees yarn coming out. I have to knit and crochet when he's asleep. He says to tell Meezer that she did a GREAT job on those needles!!!! I don't agree. Meezer,Meezer....

Your hat is lovely Sallee.

Hugs, G

My Gwenna used to love to gnaw on the bamboo needles. I still have a pair that I've kept to remember her by.

I love the ingenuity you've shown in rescuing that needle!

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
