How do you keep your knitting away from your small children?
I am so frustrated! DD just ripped out a HUGE amount of my Irish Hiking Scarf. I was almost finished with it, and she probably destroyed two hours worth of work. :( Not to mention that trying to figure out where I am in a cabled pattern is really difficult for me -- I'm just not that good yet.
The thing is, it was in my knitting bag, which was stowed on the top shelf of my closet. DD is two, but she's a monkey, and can climb anywhere. The top shelf of the closet is a good eight feet tall, but that didn't stop her! And all while I was helping her brother get a snack, so it didn't take her long.
What do you do to keep your knitting away from your kids? (Assuming you have kids.) I am starting to think I need a freakin' lock box to keep my knitting safe. This is not the first time this has happened, and I know she's just curious about what I am doing, but still ... ARRRGGHH!
Is this a cat toy? No, it's a sock disguised as a ball of yarn.
