Finishing a sweater with special help
I steeled myself to start seaming up my first sweater...something I was nervous about.

So I cleared the table, got some good music to listen to (Interpol), fixed myself a latte macchioto and got to work.

Then came assistant #1:



OK, he's old, he's quiet, he settled down nicely to watch me...so I accepted our somewhat uneasy alliance and continued....

....until assistant #2 came to "help":



That look was a bit too much to resist. So I gave up! What's a "cat mom" to do?

Cats will be cats, won't they?

There is no right way to knit; there is no wrong way to knit. So if anybody kindly tells you that what you are doing is "wrong," don't take umbrage; they mean well. Smile submissively, and listen, keeping your disagreement on an entirely mental level. They may be right, in this particular case, and even if not, they may drop off pieces of information which will come in very handy if you file them away carefully in your brain for future reference. ~Elizabeth Zimmerman

Heeee, cute! Our cats do that with books. They just want to dominate them and show 'em who's in charge. And it's harder to pick up the books that way. They think.
