an introduction is in order

Meet Zoey. Such a sweet, innocent calico cat. Riiight. Let's just say that attitude is something she's not lacking. We adopted her as a little kitten from my sister just over a year ago, and inherited the name (although I didn't object too much, it matches her spunk). Something Zoey and I share is a great love of yarn and knitting needles. Zoey, however, expresses her love much more violently than I do. Here's an example of Zoey in action ...

Don't worry, I stepped in before there was too much collateral damage. And since this project is destined for felting, it was pretty safe. My bamboo knitting needles, on the other hand, bear much more permanent scars. I swear, she can smell unsupervised knitting needles. Within milliseconds I can hear her chowing down. I am soo jealous of knitters who can leave balls of yarn, unsupervised, throughout their home. I know I can't be the only one with this problem... my solution? My works in progress stay stashed in bags hung from our coatrack or on top of a cabinet, out of Zoey's reach. Ahhh, Zoey. You sure make life interesting, don't you? :-D


  1. I have a dog who as a puppy would not leave my yarn alone. If I didn't catch him in time the skein would be spread from one end of the house to the other. He also gutted stuffed animals left in his reach. The silliest thing was my bedding. If I was lazy and didn't make my bed before going to work I would come home to find the comforter in a pile at the back door. He never touched it if the bed was made.

  2. Thanks for your comment cozy! What great motivation to make your bed! :-D BTW, I love your pink and red headband--that's adorable!
