Nothing like knitting when there are mischievous cats and kittens around. My new kitten, Vanille, thinks she has to help the tension by holding it down with her paw. Plus she'll unwrap the yarn balls my wife has wrapped up, much to her loud complaints. Once my wife has it wrapped again, it gets unwrapped in a hurry.

Oh, I love my kitty. I am very fortunate that she is not one to be interested in anything knitting, and at 15 years old, I think she's a bit long in the tooth to be learning any new tricks.

She does make a very nice lap warmer! It can be challenging knitting with her in my lap and depending on the project, lap time can be quite limited.

Is your kitty fluffy, Claire? If so, I would imagine that having her warm your lap while doing a project would make for work that is a little fuzzier than originally wanted.

Haha! I know the feeling. One time I had my dog napping in my lap and my computer with a knitting pattern balanced on my leg while I was knitting.

This reminds me of my kitty She is pretty good when we're up, but when we go to bed, she'll get into trouble. She's not very fluffy, and in fact, I end up with more of my hair than anything else in my knitting projects
