thank you everyone for the replies! So I'm not the only one! I think I might just have to make her a felt ball that she won't be able to chew pieces off of. Our living space at the moment is very limited(2 bedrooms with boyfriend's brother & family) so hiding my woolies from the cat isn't really possible. I've tried plastic bags but she chewed right through them to get to the wool.
cottondeer, thanks for the health warning. I try to keep a close eye on all the felines here when I actually do my spinning.
hobbledehoy & cloudlover, this is what happens any time I try to knit:
I have an entire folder of similar pictures for all the times she has decided that my project is her pillow.
