Funny Story
I opened the hank of Mmmmmalbrigo so that I could add it to Clap in Pink and put the waste yarn that was holding the skein together on the floor next to me. Once finished winding the yarn into a ball I turned to get the waste yarn and noticed that it was gone. I went looking for it only to find Gypsy doing this...

No that is not cat puke coming out of her mouth that is the waste yarn that I couldn't find. Gypsy has only attacked my knitting once before recently before that she couldn't have cared less. By the time that i found her she had already felted the malabrigo waste yarn together. Needless to say I have to hide Clap in Pink when not being knitted. She is starting to show interest in it.

Just be careful she doesn't swallow any yarn. I had to pull a 6 in piece of my kittens throat twice! Gah!

I know I have heard horror stories before ugh. But I had to take the picture just because she was really loving up that yarn.

Omg, you'll have to watch her like a hawk! I wont go into the gory details, but my college roommate had a cat and I came home to find it half dead. Turned out it had swallowed a piece of sewing thread. It survived, but jeez, the poor thing suffered.


I was just having a snack...I think I'm done now.



She does look as though she's thoroughly enjoying herself. Malabrigo--heroin for cats?

That's the reason it's so popular - it's spiked with Valium (for people) and catnip (for the kitties). Double whammy.
