when we carelessly stash our yarn...:help: This is what happens when you leave an unattended tub of yarn in a room with kids...I salvaged what I could but after much frustration ripped the yarn from the skeins/balls and threw away the tangled mess.

My four dachshunds did the same thing to me years ago, tho they also ran it through the living room around the coffe table and the side tables. :roflhard:

we had a worse one at work the other day...all the eyelashy sale yarn in a big box, many of which had wormed their ways out of the labels...

it was at least an eight ball collision

Yeah, most of it was...And I truly wasn't too saddened by the loss considering I bought most of that yarn when I first began knitting a few years ago...I thought the "fur" yarn looked so fun! Now I know better :teehee:

the dangers of fun fur...i think we all have some of that hidden in our stash somewhere, right next to the red heart super saver

I didn't have that problem with my kids...they knew better than touch anything that didn't belong to them or have permission to touch...now if I could only train my cats that way, but for some reason they just look at me like "what's the problem?"...and do it again when I leave something unattended...I never have figured out how they get yarn wound, not only around the chair and table legs, but up over the rungs 2, 3 and 4 times?

My cat has eaten yarn in the past, luckily just a scrap of yarn left over from something, but it was all over the floor

:teehee: If they are like most kids they've got a million toys, but nothing is as fun as something that isn't theirs.

my girls have a fox toy like that too. i've lucked out my dogs only like to lay on my skein while i knit and cuddle my knitting when i put it down. the only problem is my older one (in the avatar) sleeps with her tounge sticking out and get a little drooly...:drool:

I would, but, I have given them so many swatches and little balls of scrap yarn that end up all over the house and eventually in the trash...lol...They have fun with it for a whole 10 seconds before the swatches and yarn balls start collecting all the dog and cat fur all over the floors...lol....And yes, Jan, they have WAY too many toys!! :teehee:
