My pup only tries to eat quilt squares.

When my dog thinks I am paying too much attention to my crocheting she insists on sitting on my lap. She weighs 75lbs. and is waaaaaay to big to be a lapdog.

My dog sometimes gets jealous of crafting. If I am making something and he wants attention he will walk right over to my project, plop down on top it it, and commence to roll around asking for a bellyrub/

My cat Icarus will happily sleep on the back of the couch if I'm reading or watching t.v. If I break out the knitting, however, he suddenly decides its cuddle time and comes and lies down ON TOP OF my arms and the knitting. He also chewed holes in the top of a pair of plastic knitting needles.

I've got knitting needles, and I'm not afraid to use them.

Not super craft-related, but my stepmom has a rabbit, Spencer, who eats everything. EVERYTHING. He's free-roaming around their teeny tiny house, and has shredded an entire flokati (fancy extra-shag) rug and has eaten the buttons off of every remote... In the space of one day he ate the top half of a pair of vintage Manolo Blahnik slingbacks. He *digs* holes in the bedspreads, and is fully litter trained but persists in picking one alternate spot to poop. He shreds any magazine, book, or tax reciept laying around. All this, and still he has free roam of the place, 24/7!

My sister had a cute black rabbit about ten years ago who was called Sooty and allowed to roam free around the apartment..... until the day he ate up half the cables on her PC and other expensive appliances, after that he lived in a cage and was known as "blasted rabbit".  He only just escaped the cooking pot!

Enthusiastic worker in almost all textile media, currently heavily involved in theatrical costumes.  Also love papier-mach and mosaic work and gardening.  Happy to meet new people too.

My cat tries to disembowel yarn if I leave it in the skeins it comes in. If I wind it into balls, though, she leaves it alone. I bought drawers for storage because I was getting sick of hand winding everything just to keep her at bay.

A while ago I was planning on knitting these really sexy little garters, pretty much just to be able to say that I knit garters... I was GEEKED. I bought this really nice satin ribbon to lace through some little eyelets in them and everything. I went to bed and left the spool of ribbon on top of my mouse cage (which takes up a shelf on my desk, so I sit things on it frequently) and awoke to a terrible shredded mess inside the cage the next day. Pretty much the entire spool I bought was being used as a terribly comfortable little mouse nest...

At my parents' house there are 2 cats that hate each other.  One insists on sitting on anything clean or new... thus shedding fur all over it that can never be completely removed.  The other can be entertained by anything.  She is delighted to chew on cardboard or paper and she could play all day w/ an old collar.  However, her new discovery is balls of yarn.  She got ahold of one of mine while I was knitting a hat or something and hauled it across the room.  We decided she might as well have her own ball and she was content with that for a while.  When we woke up the next morning there was yarn trailed all over the house.  My parents call it her "artwork."  She creates this art then stares out the window like some snooty impressionist... maybe impressionists aren't all snooty, but she certainly is.

Ah cats are weird.  All the dog does is shred up her bit of carpet thinking its her food... now she gets fed elsewhere.

I'm down w/ a personal swap now and then!  PM me!
