Inappropriate Use of Knitting Needles
*sigh* I just binded off my armwarmers and what happens? My boyfriend decides that he's going to take my needles (thank god they're metal) and poke the cat with them. The cat that's already been trained to attack anything similarly shaped. (My boyfriend poked him with his wooden practice sword when he was little.)

...and the cat just tried to chase the needles with his claws out and landed in a rather ... tender area on my boyfriend. That'll teach him.

...maybe.

EDIT: My boyfriend gave me my needles back. I tend to stick my needles into my braid in my hair when I'm not using them. So then he decides to put the cat on the back of chair. I quickly removed them before damage was done, thankfully.

Keep a water bottle handy and if he tries to take your needles, spray him. Your BF that is, not the cat LOL.

LOL!

I did that years ago with my cat. Except the needles were really old plastic ones my grandmother had and...they snapped in half!!!

Guess that taught me.

Totally agree w/ the water bottle on your bf. Poor kitty..

Teach your BF to leave the kitty alone!

Isn't your boyfriend the one who called knitting mindless?And told you that you "could knit him a hat if you wanted" shortly after? He doesn't seem to be improving on his respect for this craft much.
