When I’m knitting I get a couple of problems and I’m wondering if other people have the same issues and how they deal with them.
The problem surrounds knitting monsters - you know, small, furry, big ears, long tails, always know more than they let on…
When I’m happily knitting away, a knitting monster will stick its claws under my kneecaps and pulls hard trying to eat the yarn.
When that one is dealt with, I’ll be there again knitting quietly, when another knitting monster will be trying (and succeeding) to get its foot long teeth around the end of the needles.
Occasionally, I’ll be knitting in one colour yarn, and when I look down, there’ll be black or tabby coloured yard poking through, lift up the work and what do I find? Yet another knitting monster.
Then theres the times when the knitting monsters tails take on a life of their own and swat about at my needles and face.
One serious problem with the knitting monsters, was when I wasn’t concentrating properly and a small ginger and white one hijacked my needle and ran into the next room trailing yarn everywhere.
Has anyone else got issues with these monsters?
How do you deal with the furry little critters?
