  1. OMG...that was me yesterday as well. Our little Ivy was attacking my yarn and chewing on it....I finally had to banish her to the bathroom window to watch the squirrels!! What is it about cats and yarn???

  2. This will be excuse for why I don't crochet...not that I lack the skill, but because I have 8 cats. Johnny is too cute and your view is spectacular.

  3. Yep, there is simply no rehabilitating that cat. Nope. He's only fit for being a barn cat.

  4. Ah, the classic cat with a ball of yarn scenario...they can't resist! So cute. I'm happy he finally got what he really wanted, your undivided attention, and your whole lap!!! He's such a feral beast...NOT! Pretty darn irresistible, he is. Fun to see him in action...and you crocheting is very impressive!

  5. That's what he wanted the whole time was just to cuddle up on your lap...such a lover
    Maybe you could make him a toy or something that hangs for him to play with? (A crocheted mouse with feathers)

      My friend's mother makes these dog/cat toys. She takes a plastic easter egg and puts a few buttons or beads inside so it rattles. Then she crochets all around it so that it's easy for them to pick up, like a ball! Your next project (for either JCC or Smoochie-poo)?! ;)

  8. Ah yes, slime on your yarn -- cat, dog, or whatever else. Familiar problem. You did the only possible thing -- give up & cuddle!

  9. Ahhh, yes. You can imagine my cat's euphoria when 6 or 7 knitters come to hang out at my house for a couple of hours each Tuesday. Yarn, lap, beautiful afternoon... I'd expect nothing less from Johnny. What are going to do with all those lovely crocheted pillows anyway?

    1. Most of the current supply will be gifts. After that, it's either insulate my attic or open an Etsy shop. Time will tell.

    2. You will find yourself able to do both! I just have too much loose insulation to store my yarn there. Hubby won't let me. So, you find yourself doing what I have to do...stash-busting. Fortunately they do not allow "Support Cats" in Panera on Monday nights. *lol* (Gosh that video is amazingly similar to me.)

  10. Smokey tries to chew the thread when I am trying to thread a needle (not an everyday occurrence mind you). Cats live to be served :)

    JCC replies - "Good lord lady, make a lap already..."

  19. hahaha. pillow smillow. i'm afraid i would have given in and played cat & yarn games. thankfully he's patient with you.

  20. LOL! Sometimes I think my ginger boy, Cyrano, just waits for me to pick up my crochet to make a bee-line for my lap. I reckon it is something about the calm one radiates when one crochets. They want to be a part of it, and in doing so they take it away. :) My kitty does it when I meditate too.

    Oh and how lovely and quiet your place is! I know it has its inconveniences to live so far out, but those peaceful evenings must more than make up for it.
