But, of course, the classic knitted item for a dog is a little sweater. Unfortunately (fortunately?), Ollie has nice long hair, so he doesn’t need a sweater. (He does have a little yellow rain slicker, though, because we live in Seattle. It’s pretty much the cutest.) If he did need a sweater, I would have to make him this one.
I’ve never had a cat (or a dog), and I don’t know how you knitters with animals manage it.
I spent a week at my in-laws’ house, and every time I got out my knitting, this was what happened.
*pat pat pat*
It was all cats, all the time. They were fascinated by my knitting, and kept trying to steal my ball of yarn. One of them even tried to eat my circular needles.
I had to be very very careful to always put away my knitting securely whenever I got up.
At one point, I had to re-skein some lovely grey sock-weight, and the cats insisted on “helping”. I don’t even know how they figured out what I was doing. They were on a totally different floor of the house, then, suddenly, they were there. They must have some sort of cat RADAR.
They are pretty dang cute, though. So they have that going for them.
Do you have an animal trying to help with your knitting? How do you keep your projects safe from little claws and pointy teeth?
