As any crafting pet owner will know, getting animal hair trapped in your knitting/crochet is par for the course. Luckily, as my cat is black, his hair shows up quite obviously against most of my projects, so I can pull it out as I go.
But animal hair isn't the only obstacle I face on a regular basis. A long while ago, when he first moved in with us, I bought Fidget a crocheted blanket to sleep on.
As you can see, it was rather popular.
As a result, Fidget is very fond of my crochet projects. Sometimes, he just tries to help.
Sometimes, he seems to feel I am ignoring him, so deliberately sets out to stop me crocheting.
Now I'm working on my granny rectangle, it's more of a problem than ever. The original blanket was just a big granny square. To Fidget, the new blanket is exactly the same, only even more appealing because it smells more like me than the other one did. It has reached a size now that I can't have it all piled up on my knee when I'm working on it, as I get too hot. So I push most of it to one side.
That's when Fidget invades.
He completely takes it over! And I just feel too cruel to throw him off, because as well as curling up on my project, he squashes himself right up against me and I do enjoy my cuddles!
Of course, it's one thing dealing with a cat who is keen on your crochet. Quite another is dealing with the OH when he gets bored of you sitting there crocheting. Then this happens.
